The Play Date Cafe - PDCC61

I needed just one more tag before Christmas, so this was a perfect reason to make it :)  I have joined in The Play Date Colour Challenge for this week....


I began with a buff tag (I think it is a #4 size).  The edges were inked with Brushed Corduroy, embossed with Impressabilities 'paisley' and then lightly inked with more Brushed Corduroy to highlight the embossing.  The border is a stamp from the Kaisercraft 'Dear Santa' set stamped with Aged Mahogany and then trimmed to the shape of the stamp. 


I mounted the tag on a piece of scrap Kaisercraft 'Dear Santa' paper and trimmed it again.  I attached some Prima flowers, and the glittery button.  A nice quick simple tag in the mad rush before Christmas.
