~~~Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #8~~~

Good Morning Bloggers!!
It is that time again...Whimsical Wednedays new Challenge.
This weeks Challenge #8 is to make a Tag and Bling it up.
You have to check out what the other DT members created. You will be amazed at all this wonderful talent.

This is my 1st time making a tag and I know for sure it will not be my last!
They are so much fun to make :)
Since we have been getting such beautiful strawberries around here I though I would make a tag to attach to a gift basket I plan on give my bestie.
The other day she made the best strawberry shortcake with homemade whip cream for my boys and they were in HEAVEN!
Needless to say we ate all her strawberries so I am going to replenish her with all the ingredients to make another round.
The tag itself is a #8 size (6 1/4 x 3 1/8)
I  added Jillibean Soup cardstock  from the Chilled Strawberry Soup collection in Light Corn Syrup. I just LOVE this pattern paper and all the paper in this collection!
Once the paper was attached I lightly inked around the outside.
The strawberries were cut from the Simply Charmed cart in 2 1/2". I used my gypsy to hide the face and instead ran it through my cuttlebug with swiss dots and then blinged it up with stickles.
The sentiment is from Unity Stamps and Jillibean Soup called Sweetest Day.
I have used this stamp set on a recent card and I just LOVE it!
I attached the sentiment with a binder clip and also covered the top with more pattern paper.
There is green seam binding, scrap red and white ribbon and all that is held on with a sparkly brown brad.
So there is my blinged up tag. I hope you like it and want to play along with us this week at Whimsical Wednesdays.
Remember you have 2 full weeks to get your project completed and linked up.
Thanks for stopping by and I can't wait to see what you all create.
