Beach Babe

The beach tag:




Image is a freebie from Lunagirl Moonbeams.  I wanted to use one of their images for their challenge.

The two ivory buttons on the crochet lace are from my grandmother's button bag.  Many of the buttons are so old that they have crumbled.  I wanted to include some vintage buttons for the Simon Says challenge.

The other materials:

label stamps from Red Lead Paperworks
tag made from DCWV card stock paper pack All About Girls
Stampin' Up gumball green card stock
Stampin' Up gumball green ink pad
Cuttlebug embossing folder
Nestabilities curved rectangles dies
Doodlebug bubblegum button
crochet trim from Really Reasonable Ribbon
Misc ribbon, flower (maybe Hero Arts?) crystal leaves and twine from stash



The challenges:
