Hello Sunshine

Hello, and thank you for stopping by today.  Hope you are having some sunshine in your part of the world. 
We get LOTS of it in my part of the world.

I really enjoy making tag cards by simply adhering a second blank tag behind the top of the front tag. 
This allows me to write a message on the inside of the card. 

I made this for the following challenges:
Hero Arts-July-Summer
CASology - Week #1 - Sun
CAS-ual Fridays - CFC60 - Text Me

I've used two medium tags.  The bottom of the front tag is stamped with the Hero Arts Old French Writing, and the tag is embossed with a Quickutz-Dot Embossing Folder.  The Martha Stewart-Die Cut Lace Tag and the Hug Snug-Seam Binding are painted with Golden-Iridescent Gold acrylic paint, which produces a beautiful shimmer. 

Stamps:  (Hero Arts)-CL512-Lauderdale Sunshine, H2365-Old French Writing, CL414-Classic Messages
Die:  Sizzix-Tim Holtz-Tiny Tabs & Tags
Paper:  PTI-White, Black; Basic Grey-Little Black Dress
Ink/Paint:  VersaMark Ink, Archival-Jet Black, Golden-Iridescent Gold Acrylic Paint
Other:  Medium Tags, Quickutz-Dot Embossing Folder, Martha Stewart-Die-Cut Lace Tag, Scrapper's Floss, Denami Design-Black Button, Foam Adhesive

Have a wonderful day!
