Its a gift

We have a new challenge theme starting today over at Sugar Creek Hollow
This time its, ' Vintage Tags/Boxes . I am sure that getting close to Christmas these are real useful things to make especially if its going to someone special.
We also welcome our  Guest Designer  for this challenge Bonnie Garby, please pop over and see what we all made and check out all the details.
I recently bought the  Figgy Pudding images set from Gecko Galz, they are the kind of Vintage images I love.  Normally I prefer stamping but this set might just be the one that makes me experiment a bit more with digi's.

I decided to make a Gift Tag, using mainly off white and cream card for the layers.

The light for the photos was not playing nice, so I am afraid these are the best of a goodly number
Naturally the Vintage Photo distress ink featured for the additional shading.
Scrap pieces of lace and trimmings from my stash.
The base layer I run through the Crimping gadget, there is also a little  sprinkle of Frantage ivory embossing powder in a few places.

Thank you for stopping by, I do always appreciate your comments.
