A Vintage Tag

Good Morning and Happy Wednesday!

I hope you are having a good week. It was nice and warm here on Monday and the snow started to melt, but then got super cold again on Tuesday. I don't like Mother Nature teasing us like that! lol Hope it's starting to warm up where you are!

Today I have a simple project to show you that I created with a piece of chipboard. I have been wanting to use this sweet "Tasty Read" image from Elisabeth Bell's digital collection and so what better project than on a bookmark although I think I will use this as a gift tag.

I've used some Graphic 45 papers, which I love! I have been using them like crazy lately. The bottom layer is actually a piece of My Minds Eye with text on it and then I layered on the floral Graphic 45 piece. I've added some lace and ribbon and a button with a safety pin accent. I've also embellished with flowers and sticky gems. 
The image was colored with copics and then cut out and adhered to the tag. I finished off with a Whimsy Stamps postmark from the Postage Sentiment set and then a sentiment from the Graphic 45 paper pack and adhered that with some button brads. 

This card fits at:
A Spoonful Of Sugar  - Anything but a card
Bunny Zoe's Crafts  - Spring - flowers Everywhere!
Simon Says Stamp and Show... - A Tag!
Little Claire's - Anything Goes 
Our Creative Corner - feature some kind of cutting technique

Thanks so much for stopping over today. I hope you have a great day! And if you are a fan of Elisabeth's work, be sure to join me on Friday when I participate in the new February digital stamp release hop!
