True Friends

Hi Folks,

Haven't had much time for crafting this week until today, so the priority was to make this tag, which luckily fits a couple of challenges - Make My Monday where it is  Vintage  Childhood, and also Craft Room Challenge which is Childhood Memories.

This tag will adorn a gift for my oldest friend -in fact we met in Junior School! and although we aren't quite as vintage as these children, we did like dressing up,  she's the one on the left - cause she's 9 month older than me!!!
The image is Lost Coast 'Prom Night'.  The tag was inked, spritzed, stamped, embossed and inked again.
The DI's were Frayed Burlap and Tattered Rose with a little bit of Vintage Photo on the edges of the image.
The words are Crafty Individuals.  The rose is cut from  a TH Tattered Florals die.

  I am also entering this in:
    Craftymess - Distressing/Aged
    The Poodles Parlour - Tags
    Simon Says Stamp - Emboss It

That's it now now, hope you all have a good weekend.

Avril xx
