Tag Card

The challenge this week at Delightful Challenges is to USE A TAG ON YOUR CARD.  This is my last card as a designer for Delightful Challenges as I am stepping down from the design team.  I want to thank Wendy Hall for the wonderful opportunity and her lovely friendship.  Thanks also to the rest of the team for their friendship and I plan to continue lurking around their blogs to see what they are up to and I hope they will visit here once in a while.

The sponsor this week is our own Digital Delights by Louby Loo with a $10 gift certificate to the store.

I had fun making this card and tried something different.  The tag is hand cut from a piece of plain blue card stock.  Then I sponged a couple of distress inks randomly over it and spritzed it with water.  The result was this cool mottled look, which really came alive when I embossed it.

I am going to enter this card in the following challenges:

Crafty Cardmakers - Embossing
Paper Sundaes - Pop It Up
Crafting for all Seasons - Anything Goes
