BBTB2/SweetHeart/Tag

Shelly is our hostess this week at BBTB2 and she has asked us to design from Sweethearts cartridge and to use the heart tag. If you wish to join in our challenge, you can use any tag from any cartridge. Just follow our challenge instructions posted at the top of our BBTB2 blog.

I almost want to name this project my "junky tag" because it just sort of was slammed together ... I cut a bunch of hearts with a shadow in black, I had the word "love" in a box lid (spare parts, ya know) The tag, the hearts and the key all came from Sweetheart cartridge. I did lay a gold ink pad over the key cut, sprinkled gold embossing powder on it, then gave it a good heat up with my embossing gun. I added a red ribbon and some gold thread, everything is embossed. I had this little box of black and white and red buttons so I decided "why not" and glued some on the tag. See?....junky.
I hope that you enjoy visiting BBTB2, because we truly enjoy creating projects to inspire. Please do join in our challenge. We want to see what you did with a tag.
