Magnolia Down Under Challenge #67 - Tag It

Well this week over at Magnolia Down Under Challenges we are asking you to "Tag It". This can mean decorating a tag, adding a tag to your card, or anything else you can make work using a tag! I used the Magnolia Doo Hickey Tag die and a luscious pink tassel to add a sentiment to a wedding card. I have glued the tassel in place as you see it so it doesn't flop down over the image.

I'm fairly busy with DT work this month so when my sister recently asked me to make a card for her SILs wedding next month I thought I'd get ahead and make a wedding card for this challenge - I hope she's happy with it!

I love pink, white and kraft together - it's sooo soft and yet still has the contrast. I used my CB embossing folders to add some interest to the base layer. Some platinum stickles add some sparkle to the bride and flower girl's headpieces and flowers. I used small pearls in the bride's hair but they were too big for her necklace - so my liquid pearls came to the rescue. I have used my clear Spica pen over the bridal gown and some star dust stickles on the flowers- this really looks fabulously glittery IRL - perfect for the happy day!

Having seen some of the other DT work for this challenge already I KNOW it's worth your while just checking out the eye candy on offer HERE - and hopefully we can inspire you to play along too!
