Mo's Challenge # 87

Tag! You're It!

Our challenge from our hostess, Dawn, this week is to make a tag and use our favorite embellishments. I consider myself  'tag challenged' as I can never seem to place them on a card so that they look as if they belong. They always appear to be an after-thought!
 Anyway, here's my attempt, and it actually doesn't look too bad. LOL!

 The image is one of a series Mo has done of little girls and fruit. They are all just irresistible!
I made the tag using oval dies, and the 'seeds' are actually petals from a punched flower. I sanded the CS to rough it up and give it a little texture. The inside of the tag says, "Just for You."
  A few of my favorite embellishments are gingham ribbon, punched borders, charms and pearls! Of course, I love flowers and brads, too, but enough is enough, or maybe too much in this case!
