Tag You're It 58!

Friday, October 14, 2016

TGIF!  It seemed like Friday took forever to roll around this week.  Monday was a holiday for me and I didn't have to work that day so you would think that a short, four-day work week would be a good thing.  And technically it is, but for some reason those four days seem to drag on forever!  But finally Friday has arrived and it is time for a relaxing weekend and to reveal a new challenge at Tag You're It!  This week our tag inspiration is brought to us by Leigh Penner.

I copied the basic layout, colors, and background of Leigh's tag but I inlaid the die cut pine branch.  I added a red poinsettia so that this could turn into a Christmas tag rather than a Thank You tag.  Lucky for me there's an Anything But a Card challenge at Mod Squad Challenge this week so this tag fell neatly into that category!

Incidentally, the "peace" sentiment was die cut from glimmer paper then colored with a Copic marker so that it would be green.  I wasn't sure how that would go but I am pleased with the results.

Well that's it for me today.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have some time to check out the inspiration from the Tag You're It design team!  We would love for you to play along and join us in the gallery!

Paper:  Basic Gray, Poppy Parade, Silver Glimmer (Stampin' Up); Solar White (Neenah)
Ink:  Copic
Accessories:  Gift Card Holder Tag die (Reverse Confetti); Blooming Poinsettias die (Memory Box); Pine Branch die (Impression Obsession); Wet Paint Holiday die (Papertrey Ink)
