The Golden Colors of Fall - Crafty Creations Challenge #90

Hi Ya Everyone,
  This week at Crafty Creations we are challenging you to use three colors on your card - brown, red and green.  You are not limited to these colors, but they must be present on your card.  Stitchy Bear Stamps is sponsoring and you could win 5 digital stamps from them. 

I made this little tag card for a change of pace.  I started coloring (with Copics) this adorable image from our sponsor and wanted it to stand alone. 

So I decided to put her on a tag.  I cut her out with my X-Large nestables and adhered her to a piece of brown paper.  I made a pocket using some Basic Grey Cappela paper I had in my stash and used a number of rub-ons from Karen Foster Designs.

 I added a bit of ribbon for the top of the tag.  Here comes a wee mistake on my part - I also tried adding a sentiment from the rub-on set that said "The Golden Days of Fall" - however, it didn't show up as well as I thought - so if you look closely (under the buttons that is) you will see a little something peeking out! LOL - oh well live and learn!!  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Be sure to check out our sponsor for this week Stitchy Bear and head over to Crafty Creations for a fun easy challenge!
