Made for the following challenges:

Wild Orchid #31 - tags
The Crafty Pad #136 - distressing and tearing
RRR #31 - I got you babe
Mojo Monday #206 - the sketch

I couldn't decide on the BP for this and then remembered the faux silk  technique - aka,  Sticking crumpled tissue paper on to paper/card stock lol.
An excellent decision I have to say :-) as I didn't want the BP to overpower the image.
I love the look of the 'faux silk' - must use it more often.

Big, squashy WO  rose sitting on muslin and net. Yes, only one, I know I'm mean lol.
There is a smidgen of glitter on the window, the pillow and dress  though you probably can't see it.

Some lovely seam binding ribbon at the top of the tag and a handmade sentiment circle

Other stuff
Lace from stash
Tag base - Pressed in Time paper from Raspberry Road
Left-over pink BP

I've updated my profile pic, in case you didn't notice, hahaha....the old one was sooo last year.
This one was taken at Knuston Hall open day when I went to see Kym on BH Monday with her charity stall.

Thanks for stopping by
Cheers me dears
