Sew Simple

I have not made a tag for quite some time, I don't know why but I tend to make cards rather than tags so I thought I would have a change and it was great fun working in a smaller space.
I decided to go for a sewing theme and will probably make a coordinated card to go with my tag.  I am entering this piece for Simon Says Stamp and Show a TAG and the Compendium of Curiosities Challenge which this week is INKING AND STAMPING MASKS, page 59 of the book.
Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x

I know what you mean Tracy, cards have more use don't they, but like you I enjoy the shape and space of a tag.
This one is gorgeous, love the stamps you have used and the masking, but also that pretty row of buttons at the bottom.
Take care.
luv and hugs {brenda} xoxox
