Tag You're...It Challenge #20

Hello friends.  Haven't played with the Tag You're...It Challenge in a while, mostly because I make the tags and then don't use them.  However, I fell in love with the background colors of Jen Mitchell's tag and decided I'd gear the tag to add to my daughters birthday gift this coming weekend.  The colors in Jen's tag were so soft and Spring like, and I've been waiting for Spring for what seems like forever, so that was my starting point for this tag.  Take a look:

I started by inking my tag (Tag Sale #8 - PTI) with TH Distress Inks in Scattered Straw, Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn, & Peacock Feathers.  Next I lightly embossed in white with a Heidi Swapp background stamp, and then embossed again with black one of the images from Serene Silhouettes - SU!.  I die cut the "you" from Hello You Thinlits - SU! twice in black and white and glued them together a little bit offset, and then pop dotted them to the tag.  A small black strip embossed with white for the "just for" and a few rainstones finished off the tag. 

Here's Jen's inspiration photo:
