SHOPPING OUR STASH #333 - Let's Play Tag!

Hello friends!
This week at
we're playing TAG!
That's right, we want to see your tags, either by itself
or on a card/project. Easy huh?

Here's what I came up with:

 And the inside:

My tag is made by sprinkling a couple Magenta Nuance dye powders onto some mixed
media paper and spritzing with water. Once dried, I die cut the tag. then stamped and second generation stamped the pine bough. I went around the edge with a VersaMark pen, and heat embossed using some glitter gold EP. Finished with some red ribbon.
The word die was cut from gold glitter paper, glued to a scrap of black card stock, and fussy cut.
The inside sentiment was heat embossed using the same glitter gold EP.
Super fun card to make!

Now it's your turn! Just crank out a tag and simply link up at Shopping Our Stash!
We'd love to see what you create. For more ideas, please check out what
my teammies created for your viewing pleasure.
