We've been *Tagged*

This week, Carolyn (Cammie on SCS) challenged us CCEEers to make a tag. It could be for any occasion. So I left off the sentitment so I could use it for whatever.

I just received some *core* paper in the mail yesterday and wanted to play with it. I just sanded the black a bit and the lavender poked through. I embossed the Lilac (Flourishes) image with JudiKins Detail Black, and colored it with copics. I added a touch of glitter with my Quickie glue pen, some rhinestone stickers and fibers, and that was it. The edges have some Milled Lavender (Ranger Distress Ink) on them too to give a bit of depth.

I almost forgot to tell you...I didn't have the right colored pearl, so I colored one of my Kaisercraft ones with a copic to match. How cool is that?

If you'd like to see what the other girls have done, or would like to participate in this challenge too, click HERE for the details.

I hope you have a fabulous, fabulous week!! We're taking our son to college this week....18 hours away. YIKES!! I will have a few cards post dated while we're gone, so don't write me off completely!! LOL

Beautiful! I asked Carolyn this too, but I'm curious how you would use the tag...would you use it as a "real" tag on a gift, as artwork to hang up, or in a card? I've made some tags before (never as pretty as yours) and then they sit because I'm not sure what to do with them.

OH MY WORD...Tosh, this is A*MAZING!! I don't even know where to start!! This really took my breath away! First of all, I adore Lilacs...and this one is colored SO beautifully! It looks so real...I swear I can almost smell it! Then you added bling (be still my heart) and then topped it off with all those yummy fibers! Sigh...this is just perfection!
