Tag to a Card

Well here is my third creation and I am so proud of this one:

The challenge over at Cupcake Craft This week is Make a Tag. I never make tags so I thought I would give it a go. I printed out my fab new image from Bugaboo Stamps and set to work with my Promarkers and Flexmarkers. I then raided my paper cupboard for the blue paper, it's one from a big pack that I got from Canada. I cut the tag shape myself. I had a rummage through the ribbon drawer and found the yellow ribbon and the blue and yellow polka ribbon. I could'nt decide what to use so I used both and made them into a bow. I then added some pearls and the little shells which I have had for years.

Then I thought to myself what am I going to do with a tag and the only thing I could think was to add it to a card. I raided the paper cupboard again and found some matching papers, these are from the same pad. Then added some more ribbon and some lace from my stash, some Candi, some buttons and some more pearls. I handtyped a sentiment and on that went. I also found a starfish while searching for the shells and it really wanted to be on the card so I pulled a thread off one of my ribbons and used it to tie the starfish on. It works well as you can't really see the thread but the starfish moves.

Anyway I hope you like this one as much as I do.
