Tag..... You're It

Good Morning all!
Sorry this post is a bit late! I'm not sure why but Mr Blogger isn't playing nice today!!!
It's Wednesday again & it's time for another fun challenge over at
It's the third Wednesday of the month,which means it's an 
The theme is Tag...You're it!
Yep, we'd like you to make a gift tag!
Here's mine!

I used the image 
He comes with sentiments too!
Rodney has clearly celebrated his birthday in advance!! lol
It;s my Dad's birthday next week & this will be attached to his pressie
which is more than likely to be something with bubbles in! lol
I coloured Rodney with Promarkers then cut him out with an oval nestie.
I matted him onto a scalloped oval which I embossed using the 
Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder.
The sentiment was done on my pc & I matted it onto some embossed card too.
I added a couple of mosaic gems to finish it off!

Here's the Inspiration photo!

I based my layout on the sketch at 365 Cards

Here's the reverse of my tag!

I used a Sizzix Original Scalloped Tag Die & cut it out twice.
I embossed both sections with the Cuttlebug Swirls 
embossing folder. Then stuck them together.
I added an oval section similar to the one on the front
write on! I finished it off with some Funky Fibres!
Thanks for stopping by to look!
