Totally Gorjuss #244 - "include a tag"

Hi folks, I'm back in the game this week after a week off due to sickness. This week the challenge is "include a tag".

You can check out the challenge here.

Here is what I created for this weeks challenge...

This week I have used stamps from my fav company - IndigoBlu. 
The Miss Austen stamp from IndigoBlu is one of my favourites and I chose this to stand alone as the tag part of the card. 
I love using this stamp as it's so detailed, not just with the facial features but all the background detail included in the stamp.

I stamped it using black ink on to white card then inked around the edges with Frayed Burlap and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. I matted and layered with different card and on the final mat I adhered IndigoBlu "Winter Dawn" Gilding Flakes using IndigoBlu's super glue - "FlitterGlu".

I  used the large frame stamp from IndigoBlu Bloomin' Great stamp set to create the background and stamped it randomly using Frayed Burlap and Salty Ocean Distress Inks. 

I chose a couple of pieces of vintage print paper from my stash with muted pastel colours. I built up a pocket base with the card to slip the tag in to it which can be removed and replaced. 

I added some lace, which I inked to the base and front of the pocket, some metal embellishments, inked some flowers, added metal butterflies and hat pins to finish. 

Thanks for popping by, leave a crafty comment of you wish.

I would like to enter this creation in to the following challenges...
