Buttons and Bows

Hi Folks,

A bit late - but this is my entry for In the Pink where the challenge this time is Buttons and Bows.  My tag background was stamped with Versamark and embossed with White EP,  and then I used Paris postmark and a script with Bronze EP before applying Distress Inks. It was then given a good spritz with Bronz PP. The Dress Form was embossed with a Swiss Dots folder, inked and then spritzed with PP, it does have a gorgeous sparkle ! The buttons were die cut and coated with Glossy Accents.
I've been intending to take a photo of this tag all day, and then suddenly realised at 4.15 it would be dark soon - it does take a few days to get into the routine of darker nights - but on the plus side, I did take this fab photo of the sunset. (lots of pink on here too)!

I am also entering this in:
  Dream Valley Challenges - Glitter & Bling
  Sugar Creek Hollow - Text (I hope French text counts)
  Frosted Designs - Paints/Mists/Inks
  Hotshots - Bling

Thats it for now, and I know I've been a very poor blogger lately, but the Save the Dates are nearly finished, and normal service should resume - for a while!  Before I go, I would just like to say 'hello' to my new followeres - lovely to see you.

That's amazing... on my computer the colours of the tag and of the sunset are perfectly matched - it's as though the sunset inspired the tag! Both absolutely beautiful, by the way... love the white text against that gorgeous background. Oh, and did you see your wonderful witch's washing line was a Top Pick for Lisa M at MIM?

Hi Avril, Gorgeous tag and sunset - a perfect match! The tag background is just beautiful, the white text pops so well. The dot embossing on the dress form is perfect. Love the candy looking buttons too. Nicola x

Looking at your gorgeous tag and beautiful sunset one could be forgiven for thinking one of the take on the other, although I know that wasn't your intention.

A great tag anyway Avril.
