Tag You're It! #67 with Marion Vagg

Hello and happy Friday!  Such a crazy week around here, both my daughter and my mother were/are in the hospital.  Going between pediatrics to ortho/nuero has been quite the challenge, and the "chair-bed" leaves a lot to be desired!

This tag will probably go to my mom to brighten her day.  It was influenced by the very talented Marion Vagg for Tag, You're It challenge #67.

Here is Marion's beautiful tag!  I love the dimension of the flower and swirly leaves, and the background texture is amazing as it subtly wraps around her focal point.  Those are the two aspects of Marion's tag that I wanted to highlight on my tag.

Dies:  Birch Press Dazzle layers A and B, MFT Plentiful Petals, MFT Words for Friends, PTI Branching Out 
Inks/Paint:  Brusho Lemon, Orange, Yellow, Distress Ink Spiced Marmalade 
Other:  Nuvo Drops Ripened Pumpkin, Sugared Almond, Bright Gold, floss from Hobby Lobby

I hope you are inspired to join us for TYI challenge #67.  Please head on over to the TYI blog to find more creations inspired by Marion Vagg.

Thanks for coming over to visit.  I hope you are having a wonderful day!
