Tagged.....




I'm so glad this dare came up today!! I have been saving clothes tags from my daughters' purchases(and there are plenty of them!!!!) for a while after I saw a card that Gillian made some time ago using various clothes tags. Thanks for the inspiration Gillian! Today I got to use one!!!
This card is for my eldest daughter's boyfriend who will be 18 soon. This dare is perfect for him as he works part time in a men's clothing store. He is also in a band and starts music college in September so I wanted to try and create a card with a music theme. He is one cool funky dude so it had to have a modern feel to it as well. This is what I came up with.
pp and epoxy sticker Love Elsie - Roxie ( love, love , love this paper range and it's perfect for teenagers - it seems to have their personality all over it if you know what I mean!), 'wild' tab, chipboard numbers and label holder by Heidi Swapp and brads by mm. Used loads of ink to give the papers a distressed look, and sanded the label holder as well.
Think it will be Ok, but my daughter Lolly will soon let me know if it is not cool!!Teenagers!!!Huh!!
Enjoy the weekend!!
