WMSC#67-Fall Flower Basket Tag

Today I am sharing a tag I made for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #67.  The sketch this week is by Claire Brennan:

This cute sketch inspired me to make a tag using a new set I just received called Bountiful Basket Additions.  I stamped two large label images from Vintage Labels #18 in versamark and embossed them with clear embossing powder.  I cut out the center layer and popped it up with dimensional tape. The Vintage label doesn't need a whole lot to make it beautiful, these images hold their own and the clear embossing with the extra large image is so striking.  It has been cool and raining here, so I made my basket full of fall color flowers.  The basket is stamped onto kraft cardstock and colored with copics.  I then embossed  it with a SU square lattice embossing folder.  It looks and feels like a real basket.  The sentiment is from Sewing Box Hugs.  A really pretty bow with orange and green wrinkled ribbon tied on with twine and a button add a little bit of frill to the tag.  I die cut a couple of leaves and embossed them with the square lattice embossing folder too, just to bring in a little bit more Fall color.  Here's a little closeup of the popped up layer and the embossed basket.

Thanks for taking a look at my Fall tag.  I hope you all will consider playing along with the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges.  There are some great sketches in the archives too that are perfect for jump-starting your creativity.

Beautiful tag, love the little roses peeking out of the wonderful little wicker basket, and the glossy embossing gives this the WOW factor!

Such a gorgeous tag, Cathy! I love the scrumptious seam binding ribbon! Both the heat embossing and dry embossing give so much lovely texture! I especially love it on the basket! :)
