It's Tag Time!

Hello friends!
Hope you have been enjoying your weekend!
Mine has been very busy getting some much needed things done! :)
Today is my hubby's birthday too, so I want to be sure to spend some time with him.

Today starts a new theme challenge over at
{Cupcake Inspirations}
That is one gorgeous cupcake, right?!
So it's all about "TAGS" for this challenge!  Whether it be an elegant wedding tag, birthday tag or Christmas tag, just show us your tag creations! :)  We can't wait to see what you come up with!

Our sponsor for this week is
(Click on photo to be taken to the store!)
So be sure to play along for your chance to win a fabulous prize!

The sponsor was kind enough to let the team play with some images, so here's what I've made for this challenge:
I have chosen to use this stunning image from ADFD called Flower Madien 1.
I kept her dress white with the exception of the little light shading with a light blue Copic marker for the creases in her waistline area and around the edges of her dress.  I have also covered her dress with a Wink of Stella clear glitter pen.

I have fussy cut the image and popped her up over the tag with foam tape.  I've added some elegant lace trim along with a strip of pearls over the top of it.  I also added some flowers from my stash and stamped a couple of sentiments from some Stampin' Up! sets that I have in my stash.  I made my own stitching details along the sentiment and edges of the tag by using a piercing tool and going over it with my white gel pen.  I punched the "congrats" sentiment out with a Word Window punch and added it for an additional tag with some linen thread.

To make the loop for the tag, I've tied on some white organza ribbon through a hole I created with my hand held punch.  I've also topped the flowers off with some clear Stickles glitter glue.

The reason I decided to go ahead and make a wedding theme tag is because I have someone in mind that I'd like to be giving this to, so this challenge came in handy for that! :)
I hope you will stop by the challenge blog and join us for TAGGING fun!!

Thanks for hanging out with me today!!
See you again soon!

Oh my god, this is sooo beautiful! I love it! It is such a great idea, that you only made the holes and then added chalky white to make it look like stiches! Wow. Thank you for sharing your creativity with us over at Tuesday Throwdown.
