Put a tag on it - CraftyHands DT

Good morning bloggers!

It's another Friday, and once again time for a new challenge at CraftyHands! The theme this fortnight is Put a tag on it, which is easy peasy, no? Just to clarify, we're looking for a tag on your creation. Not just a tag in itself!

I took the opportunity to have a play with a recent LOTV purchase, and a First Edition paper pad I'd not had a lot of chance to play with yet. These papers ( the Spring Feast pad) are so very delicious, expect to see a lot more of them!

Anyways, here it is:

The tags were also in the paper pad. The flowers are The Hobby House (roses) and WOC (everything else). I didn't have pearls in the colour I wanted (I'm pretty sure that particular shade doesn't exist, lol), so I used the same Promarker that I used for the main green parts in the image to colour them in. Throw in a bit of lace, some liquid pearls, Stickles and a heart embellishment, et voilĂ .

This is one of those cards that has kinda snuck up on me. When I first finished it, I really didn't like it. No idea why, I just didn't. It was late, so I went to bed and left it on my desk. The following day I kept glancing over at it, thinking I ought to decide whether to photograph it, or start again. It grew on me. Now, it is actually one of my favourite makes this month! It just goes to show... sometimes first impressions aren't everything, lol. The Apple cider / Soft peach colour combo seems to have gotten under my skin, and I'm constantly having to stop myself using those same colours on everything!

Oh well, enough from me anyways, it's your turn! How would you like to have a chance to win this scrummy paper pad?

I know I'd love it! But I shall simply have to live vicariously through one of you instead! What are you waiting for? Go see what the rest of the DT have cooked up for you, then join in the fun with a creation of your own!

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges:
