Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #24

This week over at the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #24, Kimberly Crawford challenged us to make a tag. I used a Nestability die cut for my tag and cut it from Prism light candleglow card stock. I stamped the lemon tree image from the Flourishes Lemon, Life, Love set on wc paper and colored it using Tombows and an aquapainter. I cut it with the same Nestability die, and cut out one side to leave a little white area on the tag. The sentiment is from KSS Hibiscus stamp set. I added a yellow eyelet, some gold cording, a bow and 3 tiny gemstones to finish this off. I hung the tag around a bottle of wine to photograph it, but I think the next time I make lemon curd, I'm going to tag the jar with this and give it to a close friend who loves lemon as much as I do. Of course a bottle of Lemoncello wouldn't be a bad gift either, eh?
Happy Tuesday!
