WEEK #1 LETTER " A " - TAG ALONG THURSDAY MY ENTRY

I  CREATED MY TAG AROUND A BEAUTIFUL ANGEL I FOUND ON A WEBSITE I ADORE.   I THOUGHT SHE WAS JUST BEAUTIFUL WITH HER FLOWING LOCKS AND 
ROSES CASCADING DOWN FRAMING HER  ANGELIC FEATURES.

 
I CUT OUT LACE FLOWERS AND APPLIED THEM TO THE BASE OF THE TAG. I USED  CAROLINA AFTERNOON SCRAPBOOK PAPER AND COMBINED  4 COORDINATING PATTERNS  IN  YELLOW & GRAY HUES.  I THEN EMBELLISHED THE  ROSES AROUND  HER HAIR WITH SILVER GLITTER AND ADDED A JEWEL RING TO HER FINGER.
I ATTACHED A LAYER OF WHITE AND YELLOW PAPER ROSES TO THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ANGEL.  I HAND CUT AND ADDED A HEART AND  CRAFT TICKET THAT READS "ANGEL XO"
I ADDED A VINTAGE EARRING FROM MY PERSONAL COLLECTION TO THE BOTTOM.
LASTLY I TIED ORGANZA SHEER WHITE RIBBON, YELLOW SATIN RIBBON AND A ROW OF PEARLS FOR MY FINAL BLING ON THE TAG. 
I HOPE YOU LIKE HER.....I LOVE IT!!!
