Joan's Tag Challenge


It is Tuesday so it is time for a new Tag Challenge at Joan's Gardens.  I want to congratulate Angelica Turner for winning the last challenge.  Her tag was gorgeous.

This week I decided to used the small Tim Holtz Movers and Shapers "Mini Bird & Cage Set" repositionable Magnetic Dies for this card.  I love this small bird cage because it will fit both cards and tags really well.  The design paper used is from the "Moulin Rouge" paper pack.  It was embossed with the Cuttlebug "Textile Texture" folder.  The sentiment and frame are from a new JustRite set called "Sending You Sunshine".  The frame was stamped then cut out with the Spellbinders "Lacy Circles" die.  The center was stamped on another piece of card stock, colored with Copic markers and cut out so it could be attached with dimensional dots.  Kaiser Craft pearls were added to the center of each flower.  Sizzix leaves were added over the top of the bird cage.  The pretty "Prima Flowers" were added to match the flowers in the flower pot.  (The peach color in the stamped image is not showing up well in the photo but the flowers do match the Prima Flowers perfectly.)   The top corners and the bottom of the tag were created using the Martha Stewart "String Lace" border/corner punches.  Blue ribbon was added to the top of the tag.

All products used on this tag can be purchased from Joan's Gardens.

Hope you will join us for the challenge this week.  You can read all the details at Joan's Gardens and see the beautiful tag Joan created this week -- she also used this cute little bird cage and bird.    Next month everyone who has won the tag challenge will be entered into a drawing for a nice prize from Joan's Gardens.  Remember to vote for your favorite each Monday.
