Cross Stitch Tag

The view is beautiful where we camp along the bay, so had to take another sunset photo.  It's so great having such beauty out the windows of our trailer.
I don't take stamps when we're gone, but I did take a few more MFT Cross Stitch Tag die cuts.  When I realized I had floss with me that was close enough for Color Challenge 97, I looked for a pattern that would work & found the Cupcake
You might think the floss is red & pink, so that's why I included the pink floss in the photo--not what I used.  Decided to experiment with making a border & love how it turned out.  I'm not one who can come up with their own patterns, so even this simple border was a big deal for me--haha!  When we got home I found matching cardstock for the top of the tag.  The yellow mat is splattered with white paint--barely visible in the photo.  I used a PTI Tiny Tags sentiment stamped in Classic Kraft multiple times to get it dark enough.  Gotta love the mini MISTI!  A local friend has a July birthday, so I can hand deliver this card which would be a little difficult to mail with the ribbon & twine tied on & the tag attached with foam tape.  I'm also entering DRU, The Snippets Playground & SSS Wednesday.  Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.

  7. I see why you camp there, the sunset is beautiful. Cute tag and a nice gift along with the card. If the holes were 10 times bigger I could make one of those!
