a little thanks...

Hello friends!!  Here with a little project (and yes, it is definitely little, lol!), that I made for a couple of challenges:  Tag You're It #1 and Sketch for You to Try.
My "friend I have met... yet" and fellow blogger, Martha, is the master of the tag-card.  In fact tag-cards are her absolute favorite type of project to make and she makes some stunning ones.  If you have not checked out her blog, please do so right now... you won't regret it one bit!  When I saw the new challenge blog "Tag You're It" I immediately thought it would be fun to make a tag-card (Martha's love for tag-cards has seriously rubbed off on me, lol!).  So I used the layout from Sketch for You to Try and kept the "thank you" theme of Virginia's tags and even some of the colors.  I die cut my tags using the Reverse Confetti large tag die from the "Tag Me" die set.  I die cut a total of three tags.  One in kraft, one in white cardstock and one in patterned paper.  The patterned paper was adhered to the white tag and about a quarter of an inch of the tag was cut off to show the kraft tag.  Some additional patterned paper was die cut using the small tag from "Tag Me" and adhered to the large tag.  A fishtail banner was die cut and stamped with only the "thanks" portion of a sentiment from the RC set "Forever Fall".  A bit of kraft ribbon and red twine finished things off.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock: PTI white and kraft; Patterned Paper:  Stampin Up! Fresh Prints; Ink:  Stampin Up! Coastal Cabana; Ribbon:  PTI kraft; Stamps:  Reverse Confetti Forever Fall; Dies:  Reverse Confetti Tag Me, Verve Flag It; Twine:  May Arts
