Friendship Tag Card

I love this card! Isn't it great when you make something you REALLY like lol.

This was made for the Willow Sketchie which was a bit of a puzzler at first & got me thinking. The theme is "Back to Basics" & Sharon is asking that we keep the layout as basic as possible - she doesn't want to see any matting an layering... just the bare essentials. Luckily with these gorgeous Basic Grey papers you don't need too much else. Ooh there was a twist to the challenge too... to create a hidden message. I made a tag with the meaning of a Friend on. The image is my VERY favourite Willow Designs stamp (I love lots of them especially the fairies) which I coloured in with Prismacolor pencils, added a touch of glitter & inked the edge.

Over at Secret Crafter Saturday challenge there challenge is "1,2,3" - 1 image, 2 papers & 3 embellishments: I used a ribbon, a brad & a gem :o)

PS. Sorry for the blurry photos I will try & take some better ones later.
