Tag Your'e It - Lacy Wedding Tag

Happy Friday! I hope you have some fun in store for the weekend! We're busy here getting the garden in. Mr. J tilled the soil now it's my job to plant the seeds and seedlings. So far I've got the tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, celery, cabbage and herbs (cilantro, rosemary, sage, thyme, basil, oregano and parsley) in. I'm taking a break and cooling off before I do one more thing! Gosh it's hot out!

Have you checked out Tag You're It Challenge lately? It's now a monthly challenge that give s you more time to play! The design team is split into four groups and we each share samples on different weeks.

Check our our inspiration tag from Lindsey Larsen of Occasional Crafting! I love this lacy confection she designed and when I spotted all that lace and a "touch of blue" I immediately got thinking of June brides and made a special tag for a dress up a wedding gift.

I started by making a frame from two square die cuts nested inside each other.   Next I die cut the pretty Memory Box Dizzy Butterflies and adhered the frame over them. 

I trimmed the excess die cut from the frame before adhering a second square cut from pink card stock  to the back of the frame.   I love the way the pink peeks through the lacy die cut butterflies and flowers! 

I punched a hole in the corner of the frame and added some gold twine.  I hot blued a white satin bow and paper flower to the top of the tag.  A sprinkle of pearls in gold and pink are the finishing touch.

Stop by Tag You're It! to see more beautiful designs inspired by Lindsey's tag!   If you love lacy feminine die cuts you'll love these!

Jeanne, this is just lovely! I love that you took inspiration from my tag and turned it into a piece of perfection. I was just putting the last of my seeds and plants in today, too. So much work, but I am absolutely amazed when a garden grows. I love it. Yours sounds awesome.
