Joan's Garden Tag Challenge


The challenge at Joan's Garden is to make Christmas tags, anything goes.
Between work hour's I've been slaving away at tags. I have four others made, but this is the I'm choosing to share now.
The others are very flat, as I know my little grandchildren can not appreciate a more detailed tag.
This one will be on it's way to New York! See I've been a huge part of Adrieene's life since she was a baby. I've taught her memories will not go away especially if you have special things to remind you.
I know she will treasure this and display it even.
I will put up the other tags as a group when I get them all finished.
On this one I used three TH inks, worn lipstick, tea dye and wild honey. I used a flourish type stamp to create more depth on the tag.
The sprigs and pine cone are from a TH die. The ornament is from dp and a JustRite stamp. I covered the center with glossy accents.
Then I cut a banner from cream card stock sponged it with TH worn lipstick and used another JustRite stamp for the sentiment.
I hope you like this one.

I don't just like it, I love it! It has such a vintage look to it and the ornament is so beautiful, love the softness of your colors. She will treasure this, just as the memories that you keep alive and the new ones that you create.
