My TIme To Craft Dt tag

Morning and what a gorgeous morning it is....the sun is shining and I'm on my day off and apart fom the ironing I've got nothing else to do.....apart from crafting so I don't feel guilty to some me time, my daughter isn't very well now so I've not got my grandson today ....its quite strange having a day off on my own but I'm sure I'll cope. Today is the challenge at My Time To Craft and the theme is Quick Quotes....so I've made a tag using a stamp from Crafty Individuals, she has such a serene face, the quote is one I found in a magazine that I've had for ages, so I mounted it onto a velum frame and edged it with a peel off border......love the quote and so true....the background is from the paper that I used to catch my spraying and is probably a mixture of denim blue, rum and rasin, gold, tuscan sun, and tuquoise......I think, the flowers are from the same piece and I've used metal spacers secured with a brad to finish them off, and of course the lace has been spritzed to match.
Not sure what I'm goinig to do with this tag as I had nothing in mind when I made it other than for my Dt work. Will have a think today to see if I can re-use it and make it into a card to cover some challenges....I do love a challenge lol

                                                                   Have a good day

Have turned tag into a card, the backround was spritzed with the same colours as the tag, the paper is from Stampin Up....which was a pressie from my staff at work....they know I'm a total addict, the ribbon and bow I distressed with Purple concord as were the edges of the card, you get a lovely effect with distress inks if you spray irr. gold on the top .....yummy.

Challenges are:
Kard Krazy......the theme is reuse, recycle or repurpose, this kinda fits all of those criteria as the backround to the tag is recycled spritzed waste card, I've reused the tag to make a card.
Everybody art.....followed sketch.
Ink On My Fingers......open theme.
