Tags or Tickets at Sundays With Crissy

Hello everyone, how are you all? I'm here today with a card for our challenge at Sundays With Crissy. The theme this month is Tags or Tickets, so if your project has either of these on it, or if your project IS a tag or a ticket then it fits the bill perfectly. I've used a tag in my project which is where I stamped my sentiment. 

This was another chance for me to use this gorgeous image by Crissy, Rose Butterfly. I used it last month too in a different colour scheme, but it's too nice an image not to give it another outing. 


With the tag tucked in place

I wanted to create a Shabby Chic look, so I took these gorgeous papers by Prima and aged them by inking and distressed them round the edges, and added some handstitching. The image was coloured in copics and also handstitched. The tag is one I made some time ago for my DT project for Dream Valley Challenges which you can see HERE. The sentiment is by Tim Holtz and is stamped onto the tag.....it reads: "What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it". The tag was then tucked behind the sentiment and can be pulled out.

The tag taken out - you can see the sentiment now
