Tag, your it!

It's time for The Outlawz Clean and Simple Challenge. Our challenge to you is to use tags. You can make a tag to add to a gift or project OR use a tag on a card! The DT girls got SO creative this week, you really need to head over to the CAS Group and see what they did with their tags, wowzers!

My card takes CAS to the extreme. I'm really loving just a white card base lately, the crisp clean look really appeals to me. So, this is where I started. I used Cherry Cobbler ink and an image from Winter Wishes that I stamped in the lower right corner. I die cut my tag and stamped it using the Tiny Tags stamp set, then embellished it with a single pearl and a bow made of bakers twine. At that point, I thought about calling this card finished, but it was a bit too blah. I thought to myself, "What would Maile do?" (In my eyes, Maile Belles is the Queen of CAS. I want to be her one day :) And, "ding", the light bulb went off...a simple strip of Cherry Cobbler Cardstock on the left. Perfectly balanced!!

Head over to The Outlawz and play along with the CAS Group, I'd love to see you there!
