Tag you're it is back!

The challenge blog Tag you're it! is back. Their DT have produced some stunningly beautiful tags too. It is ages since I entered a challenge with a tag - not since I joined the DT on Tuesday Taggers in fact!
So here it is. Made with distress inks sponged on to a satin finish tag. I used faded jeans, tumbled glass, spun sugar and worn lipstick. The willow leaves are a lavinia stamp and the rest are from an Innovative stamp creations plate called tranquil . I wasn't sure about whether to put flowers or a bird 'on the bough' which is the theme this week. My decision was made for me when I dropped the flower stamp, all inked up on the bottom of the tag! Don't look too closely, lol! Thanks for visiting!

Oh WOW! Sally! Absolutely gorgeous!! To me this says "A beautiful, early Sring morning with the promise of a glorious day ahead, sitting on the patio drinking coffee while the birds sing and smelling the hyacinths!" which is right where I want to be now! Wonderful tag, thanks for playing with us at TYI!
