Just smile!

Good morning! Thursday already - and time for a new challenge over at Southern Girls. This fortnight the challenge is Tag it! Here's my tag and I have had such fun making it! Our sponsors this week are amazing, Iva Nova Chest , Marianne Design and Stampotique!!! We were lucky enough to be able to choose some stamps to play with from Stampotique (yay!) and after a long and happy browse I chose 'Smile'(#6078) and 'beauty verse' (#3056), believe me it wasn't easy to decide as there are so many and such a huge variety. Anyway, this is my tag,
 and it's little envelope-                                front view
back view
I hand cut the tag from a piece of plain card and used a template that I bought years ago to make the little pouch to put it in. I then masked and stamped using various colours of distress ink. The letters and rosette were  cut using Tim Holtz strip dies.  The corner die is Marianne.  I just loved making this!
To see what the rest of the team have created pop over to Southen Girls Challenge, and why not make tag yourself, if you have half the fun I did you won't be disappointed, and you could win a lovely prize!
Thanks for visiting my blog and thank you so much for all the lovely comments you have left for me!Have a lovely day!
