It was a Pot Pourri Box!

Hi Folks,

Not much crafting time this week, but managed to make my tag  last night for Studio L3 CC2C - Challenge 8 Repurposed Packaging - Page 62.

I used Victorian Velvet, Milled Lavender, Dusty Concord, Spun Sugar , Shaded Lilac and Bundles Sage for the background tag with some Frayed Burlap for the edges, I love these colours and then stamped in a mixture of Victorian velvet, Frayed Burlap and Dusty Concord.
Dress form was the packaging from a Pot Pourri box, and still had it's smell!

I am also entering this in:
  MAWTT - Anything but a card
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes
  Dragons Dreat Tag it On - To Die For

That's it for now, DD is keeping me busy, it's lovely to have her home after 4 yrs at Uni, so I feel I should make the most of this time, before she moves out again and starts work full time.

It's official: I LOVE pink and Victorian Velvet in particular! This is a gorgeously feminine piece Avril. I particularly like what you've done with the dress form and of course, the background is divine.
