Tag You're It Guest Designer--Reminder




I was fortunate winner of the Tag-You're It! Challenge #64 and was asked to be their guest designer for Challenge #66.  Here is the amazing inspiration tag:


I was inspired to make several tags using different color combinations. 







I used Uniko's

The flowers were colored with Spectrum Noir markers with a touch of sparkly gel pen. Distress Ink was used to stamp the leaves before adding the flowers with some foam tape. I finished it off with some ribbons.
