ColourQ Challenge #354 and Tag You're It! Challenge #53

Hello friends.  Playing along with a couple challenges today and came up with a tag/bookmark using the colors in ColourQ's latest challenge and using Michele Ferguson's inspiration for the latest Tag You're It challenge.  Take a look:


I used PTI's Basic Bookmark #2 die to cut out my tag, and then stenciled softly using Smoky Slate ink and PTI's Garden Gate stencil.  I added a die cut leaf branch from PTI's Songbird set in Basic Gray cardstock and flowers from PTI's Forget Me Not set, stamped in Cool Caribbean ink.  The sentiment is from PTI's Choose Joy set.  A few light blue sequins and a tassel from white and turquoise embroidery floss finished up my tag/bookmark.  I also added some shimmer to the flowers that you can see better in this closeup:

 
Getting in just under the wire on both of these challenges, but if you're quick, you can still play along!  To play with the Colour Q challenge, check it all out right HERE.  To play with the Tag You're It challenge, you can find all the info right HERE.

         

Thanks so much for stopping by today...I love it when you do!
