Vintage Tags Over At .........................."Our Vintage Affair"

Yep that is right and I could not resist the temptation to go and play along.
As you know I like to keep trying new things and although tags are not new and neither is vintage or distressing, this tag holder is.

The challenge over at Christmas Stampin All Year Long is to create  a tag holder and this was just another perfect opportunity for me to go and play and to combo some other challenges along the way.

I was a little late with my entry to Our Vintage Affair last month but this month I am on the ball, the challenge started today and guess what I spent today playing to create that special something.

Now Stamptacular this wee are asking us to Distress it so this was another something to play with and now my hands are dyed brown with Tim Holtz vintage photo and I think my sponge has died a death and next time I play I will need a new one.

Over at the Corrosive Challenge they like us to try new things so this week their challenge is Old Olive and real red and this fitted in great with this creation.

Polka Doodle are asking us to make shaped cards, I hope this fits the bill ladies.

Stampin for the Weekend are asking for Shabby or Vintage, so I joined in here too

Cute Card Thursday are asking for us to use material, I hope lace counts here.

So onto the creation which was made from various papers from a stack, along with some plain antique gold card, I used the MS doily punch it does do vintage so well don't you think.  The lace is from a local department store and the ribbon from the Hobby House.  The good old nesties used in the bug for the ovals, and the scallop ovals and stickles to add the extra Xmas sparkle.  The flowers from Wild Orchid.
So apologising for the photo heavy post again, but with out it you could miss some of the detail.
Thank you again to all those that visit my little section of blog land and leave such inspiring comments.  Oh and also if you had not noticed I am three followers away from 100 followers so I have been to see Jill at the Hobby House and arranged that as I hit my 100 follower I will be putting some candy up to celebrate, can't wait to say thank you to you all.

Well enjoy your evening

Hugs Kate xx
