Basic Grey Challenge........'Make a Tag'

Good morning peeps,
Well I cannot believe we have had another week of glorious sunshine here in the UK. Unfortunately the forecast for next week does not look good so I am not a happy bunny as since I made the move to Lincolnshire 13 years ago it has rained on my birthday every year hurumph!!
Ok mini moan over, back to the crafting. It is time for another fab challenge over at Basic Grey Challenges and this time we want to see you make a tag.

I decide to use this beautiful Tilda with Butterfly and coloured her with my Distress Markers. The gorgeous paper is from the Piccadilly collection from BG. Both yummy butterfly dies are from Joy crafts and the flowers, lace and charm are from my stash. I have faux stitched most edges and distressed with Walnut Stain DI, then added lots of sparkly Star Dust Stickles.
Well I'm off to prep for another workshop and then maybe I'll get some crafting time for me.
Enjoy the sunshine wherever you are and thanks for popping by.

I am entering this into the following challenges:
Crafty Ribbons - 'Anything Goes with Ribbon'
Inky Chicks - #9 'Summer Colours'
Lovely Hanglar and Sweet Magnolia - #74 'Bingo Card' (I used Lace, Pearls and Dies)
Loves Rubber Stamps - #62 'How Charming'
Magnolia-Licious - 'Anything Goes'
Marvelous Magnolias - #37 'Shape it Up'
Oldie But a Goodie - 'Best Dressed'
