Cute isn't she?

Great sponsors, amazing prizes!

Here's my creation:

Materials / Craft Supplies used:
- Caramel Linen Cardstock
- Rosette Trim (which I bought from a local London Craft store)
- White bows (from my local London market)
- Dovecraft Tea Doilies
- Fiskars Border Doily Punch
- Sizzix Sizzlit Ticket Die (Pack of 5 dies)
- First Paper Edition Rose Garden 8 x 8 pad
- Silver Gem stones (from my local £ store)
- Crop-a-dile and silver eyelet
- Parcel String

This simple tag was made from caramel cardstock, then layered with paper from the First Paper Edition Rose Garden paper pad. I used the Fiskars Doily border punch on one end of the tag, and then measured out where I would put the central image. The image is from one of our sponsors - CYDI and is coloured in using Promarkers (Ivory, Oatmeal, Forest Green, Bright Green, Rose Pink, Ice Grey 4 and Cocoa) and is die cut in a ticket shape from the Sizzix Sizzlit Ticket die. I added the eyelet with my Crop-a-dile after sticking the layers down with double-sided tape and threaded through parcel string, then added the silver gem stones and rosette trim at the bottom. I like the way it turned out! Very cute!

I hope this has inspired you to create some great projects and cards based on our weekly image. Enter in our challenge this week and you could win of our prizes! Get your followers and crafty friends to join in - we can't wait to see your creations and check out the amazing DT's creations too!
