Don't Let Anyone Dull Your Sparkle...TAG, You're It Challenge #45, AAA Cards #62~Anything Goes


Happy April 15th! (can you believe it?!)

It's time for our new Tag, You're It Challenge #45
and I'm delighted to be your hostess.

Here's my tag/card all tucked into the fancy image that Tracey creates for us...

and here it is, all on its own, where more details are visible...


My little dragonfly was inked with Abandoned Coral and liberally pounced with Perfect Pearls, for shimmer. Inked background on the tag and stenciling on the panel...added a sentiment and...voila! Hopefully, you'll find some sparks of inspiration here...

Need more? Please check out our fabulous guest designer's and my awesome team-mates' creations; they are AH-MAZING!

YOUR TURN!
