My Garden Angel..

Hello sweet friends.
I have a little tag to share with you today.
It has been awhile since I have made a Tag..
I know it's a sad story.  You know how I love my Tags.

Over at Rebecca's blog the challenge is to make a tag with
soft pinks and soft greens. Sounds Yummy doesn't it..



So here she is my garden angel tag.
I just love this image..  I pick up a little book a hobby lobby with 
some images and she was one of my favorite in the book.
Can you see why?




I used a glitter gel pen to make give her that sparkle.
I had fun making the Pink background even though you really can't see it.
I used water color pencil and then I stamped it with my script stamp..  





Of course a garden angel has to have a flower put on the tag..




The Lace at the bottom I picked up at an antique shop
while I was in California..  I just love to go antiquing there..


So if you want to see all the other Tags you can hop on over to
Rebecca's Blog  HERE

Thanks Rebecca for the fun Challenge.

I am also link this up to a new Challenge Blog called
The Craft Room 
The challenge this week is Anything goes..


Thats all I have for today!!
Thanks so much for stopping by..

Hugs, Linda

Oh, oh, oh! What a gorgeous tag, Linda! I can so see why you fell in love with that angel image. She's beautiful. Love the glittered gel pen detailing and love that vintage lace. Your background looks really intriguing, too, even though it is hard to catch much of it. I did notice the postmark image in the corner and loved it. I just cannot say enough about this. Think it's one of my all-time top faves of yours.
