Retro Tag

Over at Retro Sketches, this week's challenge is to create a tag. Here's the sketch:

When I saw the sketch, I had in mind that I wanted to do something a little shabby chic and a little grungy. I "cheated" a little because I had a spiral flower already made up. It was one I used at a demonstration--and I'd banged it on the table to rough up the leaves so that it was shabby. I used the Little Leaves Sizzlit to make some leaves. I LOVE that Sizzlit!! (I wonder why I don't use it more often.) For the grunge, I went straight to the Gorgeous Grunge set and used the splatter-dot stamp in Cherry Cobbler.  After I assembled everything, I thought the tag still needed a little something, so I grabbed a couple of rolls of washi tape. I finished the tag with Cherry Cobbler Seam Binding and Silver Baker's Twine.
