Happy Easter to you all, hope you are having a good holiday break and doing the things that
make you happy..............Keep Calm and Eat Chocolate!!!!

I have had a lovely chill day today and with nothing in mind I drifted into my little room of craft and started to play the end result was this tag

Distress inks salty ocean, picked raspberry mown lawn were on my desk so I used these colours for the background I stamped and embossed in silver with stamps from Creative Expressions set British Wild Flowers also in the set are little background stamps and phrases which I have also used, ribbon was dyed with picked raspberry distress ink and dryed crumpled, lastly I distressed the edges of my tag with scissors and using versa mark plenty was applied to the distressing and then dipped in silver embossing powder sometimes the quickest and easiest projects are the ones we don't plan........
I would like to enter this tag into the folowwing challenges
