OCL - Tag, You're It

Hi Friends!!  Double post today as I'm bringing you a tag that I created for this week's OCL challenge - Tag You're It.  
I created the entire tag myself using scraps that I had on my table from earlier today.  I've used a beautiful wintery set called Winter Wishes.  I stamped my image using Momento ink onto really good quality water color paper.  I then took my distress ink pads in a variety of blues, greens and browns and dabbed them all over my craft sheet that I always have on my desk.  I misted the ink with a Perfect Pearls mixture of water and water colored my image.  It's impossible to photograph but the image does have a twinkly effect in real life when the light hits it.  It's BEAUTIFUL!!  I added some dots of glossy accents to further catch the light and set the entire piece aside to dry.  I used the snowflake strip stamp that comes with the set to anchor the top and bottom of my set.  I stamped it in Versamark ink and heat set it with white embossing powder.  I used some great yarn-like twine for the top of my tag.
I made two rolled felt flowers for my embellishments and used a domed clear sticker on the bottom that says "just the two of us".  I liked how the sentiment played with the "Remember this:" printed on my die cut tag above.  I'm going to give this to my DH as we always ALWAYS try to carve out time - even if it's just a little bit - each day to do this for each other.  Having two small children easily allows all of your focus to be maneuvered often for days, weeks, months at at time away from each other.  I'm going to give this to him as a wonderful reminder for the both of us to never lose sight of us while we raise our babies.  =)  

I hope you've enjoyed and been inspired!!
