Modern Whimsy Style

by the talented Danielle Flanders, I thought I might just have to pass on this challenge.
However, as I began to play around with some leftover scraps from this & this card,
I began to enjoy the creative process of attempting this "difficult" challenge.
My next challenge, was to place all the pieces on a Tag-Card, my favorite to create.
I was stretched way beyond my creative-comfort-zone...AND...and it felt good!
I had SO much fun creating this Tag-Card!
(Thanks, Danielle, for stretching my creativity!)

Stamps:  (PTI)-Bits & Buttons, Fillable Frames #10
Paper:  (PTI)-White; (MME)-Oliver; Vellum; Clear Transparency
Dies:  (PTI)-Tremendous Tags; (Sizzix-TH)-Tag & Tie
Ink:  VersaMark
Other:  Sequins, Gold Embossing Powder, Cord, Embroidery Thread, Twill

This was SO therapeutic...I really needed this!
Thanks for your visit.
