' Simon Says ' Show us a Tag...............

Hi, its one heck of a long time since I entered the Simon Says challenge, but I had this idea in mind for a tag and wanted to go for it..........as you do.............lol


Products used:  Papermania cardstock (Chatsworth Vintage Selection), Distress Inks, Stamps by Lost Coast Designs and Hero Arts. Laces and Silk Flowers from stash, Stickles and a Martha Stewart Lace Punch.

The idea was to create a 3d Vintage effect with the layering, pleating and opening shutters.   I rather like how this has turned out.  Hope you do as well.

Would also like to add this to the new 'Artful Times' Challenge blog where they are asking for a Tag and another new Challenge blog 'Frilly and Funky' where they want to see Vintage........wow have never done 3 challenges in one before...............neat....

Wishing you a lovely weekend and take care of yourselves.  Hugs Annette x
