Tag it!

Wow the time is flying by, I've been a little quiet because we've had family visiting from the other side of the world, so crafting has temporarily been on hold, starting to get back into the flow again now. Although a tidy up of my craft room before the visit has resulted in me not being able to find anything now! lol

It's back around to challenge time again at Aud Sentiments. For this challenge we are so excited to have Tickled Pink Stamps as our sponsor. They are giving the winner a lovely prize.

 Here is a little bit about them...Cute, Quirky and Pink!  They are an Australian online company - owner Kellie has 3 very active children who keep her busy outside of craftland!  Personally, I think they have a gorgeous range of images, some are beautiful, some more quirky - really something for everyone!  Please pop over and take a peek!

OK, now onto the challenge. We want to see you TAG IT!  This means that whatever you make, your sentiment needs to be shown on a tag!  So, you could just make a tag - or you could make a wheelbarrow full of elephants with a tiny tag hanging on it! Just don't forget your sentiment! 

Tickled Pink very generously gave the design team a choice of a digi each. (Thank you TP)
Wow, overload so many gorgeous stamps to choose from, this was a challenge in it's self. In the end I couldn't narrow it down to one, so a couple of other digi's may of fallen into my shopping basket (whoops). 
The digi I chose for this challenge though was 20's Evie. Isn't she a doll?

I decided she looked ready for a cruise, and with family visiting from overseas, travel was quite a theme around me at the time. I made my card to look like a luggage bag, and of course that gave me the perfect base for the all important luggage tag with my sentiment on.

I placed a few travel images onto some kraft card, with a little emphasis on french things, they sat nicely with my sentiment, and it is Tour De France time.
A couple of strips of brown card made belts, with the addition on some sizzix buckles, and photo corners made nice corners for the edge of the luggage. 
A nestabilities label die, cut in half made a handle. Finished off with the all important sentiment tag tied on with twine, and the gorgeous Evie with the addition of a luggage case for herself.

 I would like to enter the following challenges with my card
