Glitter n Sparkle DT - Tag It

Hello, everyone.  Before I share today's card, I would like to welcome my two newest followers, Sheree at Boots and Bling Time and Gail at Lacey Lassy, so happy to have you join me!  

Can you believe it's Sunday already!  We have a new challenge starting today over at Glitter n Sparkle Challenge Blog.  This week our challenge is Tag It, so we would like you to Make or Include a Tag.  Check out the cute image I got to play with for our challenge.  It's called Beach Kitten from Meljen's Designsand I had a lot of fun colouring it with my Prismacolor pencils.  I printed the image twice and fussy-cut just the sunglasses, which I popped up with foam tape.

It's a tag challenge so I want to make sure you notice my tag.  Here's a close-up. I used my Elizabeth Craft Tags die and doodled faux stitching around the edge.  The sentiment is from StampArt Design by Kathryne and I coloured it with my Prisma pencils. 

Here are the other supplies used:
  • Dies:  Tags (Elizabeth Craft), walking cat (Poppy Stamps)
  • Stamp:  Sun (Studio G)       Ink:  Versafine Onyx Black
  • Patterned paper:  Far Far Hill (freebie - thank you)
  • Flowers:  Recollections
  • Twine:  American Crafts
  • Charms:  Sun (Stamp and Create), sea horse (Crafts and Me - won in a challenge - thank you)
  • Accents:  Buttons, crystal flowers, 3-D butterfly, metallic shell (dollar store), bling (Recollections), crinkle ribbon (won in a challenge from Karen - thank you), pearls (won in a challenge from Anna -  thank you)
  • Sketch:  Papertake Weekly Sketch #80:
Papertake Weekly - Sketch #80
