White

This weekend at the Flying Unicorn Polar Bear Pajama Party (crop) one of the challenges was to make an all white tag.  This also just happened to be the challenge over at Tag Tuesday. 

This is my first time participating in Tag Tuesday.

This tag has special significance because I used some of things given to me by the Flying Unicorn members.  The crocheted butterfly and 3 crocheted flowers are made by Cathi.  The lace at the top and bottom came from Bitsy in her Secret Santa box to me.  

The clock is a Ruby Rock-It Avalon sticker from the Flying Unicorn storeHeartwarming Vintage Crafty Secrets made the Once Upon a Time sticker as well as the little girl which I fussy cut and put inside the envelope.  I love how her thumbs are hooked over the edge of the envelope--just too perfect.  I made the tag from white corrugated cardboard.  I tore some strips of French text, also from Cathi, and glued them on the tag, then painted on some gesso and added Picket Fence Crackle to tone down the text. 

I plan to put this tag in my calendar book which is a work in progress.
