Friday Die Day

Hello friends
Definitely back in the swing of things!
For this week's FDD I am featuring Grommet Tags.
You receive three die templates with this set and this is how they 
look cut/embossed.
If I need to stamp a sentiment I often leave the die cut inside the die to align the stamp.
Here is the tag!  I covered a tag with some of the Kitschy Kitchen papers by Melissa Frances.
These were the papers I featured a month or so ago on Create and Craft and also 
I received a request from Diane to use them. 
I've rounded the bottom edges, applied some distress ink and then
added one of the Grommet Tags as a decorative edge.
I then went sticker crazy with the various retro image stickers in this paper set.
Applied some with foam pads.
Using the remaining two Grommet Tag shapes, I placed one on top of the other and 
secured with brads, this raised the narrow tag upwards for a nice effect.
Attached this on the main tag and added a little bit of cream lace.
Finished and a close up - quick and simple!
Have a wonderful weekend dear friends.
I'm back tomorrow.
