Everyone's Favourite.

Morning, happy Wednesday!!!!
Can you guess from my start that it's a lovely sunny morning :~D
It's everyone's favourite challenge this week at Scrapbook Sister. The theme is "Anything Goes"

In need of a card for a teenage boy I thought I'd use an old favourite design of mine and make a Tag card for my DT sample.

I used Plantin's Schoolbook to cut the tags and numbers and nesting dies for the "stamp" stapling my greeting to it before placing it using foam pads.

I used lots of ink distressing, some paper string which I unravelled and stapled across the DP and using hemp to tie on a recycled button.

I used  a brown Sharpie to change the colour of my brads and a selection of strings hemp and ribbon to thread through the tag,joining with some tied buttons. I also used a date stamp to add the boys birthday to the inside DP.

I'm using my card for the following challenges:-
Simply Sunday, Favourite project,
Craft Your Passion 105, Shaped cards,
MIM84, Anything goes,
Love To Create 10, Birthday,
PCI22, Natural products,
CCC8, Kraft,
SOS 47, Masculine,
Corrosive Challenge 146, Metal.

Thanks for stopping by,
