Bizy Bec's May Challenge

Bizzy Bec's May challenge is Create a Tag.  I used Tim Holtz Bigz die to cut my tag - I have never been sorry I spent the money on that.  It seemed pricey at the time but I've used it many, many times & each time I was glad I'd bought it.  I stamped Magnolia's 'Tilda With a Small Gift' onto the white cardstock tag & then covered it with a scrap paper because I wanted the shape but lots of white around the image.  Then I stamped with Stampin Up's Crosshatched background stamp.  The corner stamp is also Magnolia & is 'Loving Border' (such a cute stamp).  The sentiment is from Lili of the Valley's Set 10 - A5 Verses.  Tim Holtz distress ink was sponged/rubbed into the background - I used a shade of pink, green & the 'old paper' colours & then darkened the edges with Walnut. 
For the back of the tag, I thought I would make it into a gift card holder & stamped & sponged exactly the same way, then glued the holder down.  The sentiment is also Lili of the Valley & this tie from the Dreamy Days set & finally, Tilda was coloured with Copics.

Your tag looks just fabulous. I love how you have made the background paper and used the stamps around your image. I have looked at that tag die and thought did I need it, but I think I might need it now. !!!!!xxx
