Tag It! - One Stop Craft Challenge

Morning :) I'm thinking its gonna be a stunner of a weekend weatherwise! ;) (fingers crossed!) 

I'm so excited because I'm off to see Transformers in 3D tonight.  For some strange reason Transformers totally mesmerise me! :D ....... I dont 'do' chick flicks! ;)  lol.

So, today being Saturday sees the start of a brand new challenge over at One Stop Craft Challenge where the theme is 'Tag - youre it!'.  We would love to see your creations with tags on and are sponsored this week by One Stop Card Crafts

I used a free tag that came with a magazine and just distressed and inked it a bit and took my colours from the matching sheet of free paper (which I didnt end up using! lol).  I hand stitched and distressed K&Co papers and made the centre flower and the outer roses from Marianne Dies.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Bling it On - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Great Sketch!
Lili of the Valley - Celebrate - I am still celebrating being back! :)
Do You Stack Up - Squares
Top Tip Tuesday - T is for 'Tag'.
Crafts and Me - Birthdays
By The Cute and Girly - Things with Wings
Allsorts Challenge - Free and Easy
Emerald Faeries - Sugar and Spice & all things girly

I hope you find time to check out the challenge blog and see all the other wonderful creations by the DT and maybe play along.

Thanks so much for visiting my blog today and have a smashing weekend,

This is so good to see. The colours are tremendous & I love how the green leaves of that tag pick up the shape of the pattern in your paper as well as the green leaves you embellished with. I love this image & your gold thread just gives that touch of luxury.
