I Love You Tag!

Yay, another project completed! :)lol!

With Valentines around the corner, many blog's are having challenge's with a Valentine's theme. Hearts, pinks, reds, love is in the air and I'm loving it! Using the Sweetheart's Cricut Cartridge, I created this super cute 4 x 2 1/2 inch tag. I'm planing to put the tag in a mini album that I am planing to make, I just have to get the courage to start it (I've never made one before:)lol. This is the very first tag I make, and I think that it came out pretty cute.
 

I designed the tag on my handy-dandy Gypsy (I just love my Gypsy!), I used the Sweethearts Cricut Cartridge for the tag. First I cut the tag out from chipboard, just for sturdiness, then I cut two tag's in pink (the paper is from DCWV) so I could cover the chipboard up. I used "Tattered Rose"Distress Ink around the edges to cover the chipboard and also to give the tag a bit of the distress look. 
Here's a bit of a close up
For the frame I used the Storybook Cricut Cartridge. I used "Tea Dye" Distress Ink around and on the frame to add a little color to it. The rhinestones (Recollections: Bling a Roll) are from Michaels, and the heart stickers are from Walmart. The cute little Owl is from Create a Critter Cricut Cartridge (One of my all time favorites) and the double heart charm is form New Arrival Cricut Cartridge. I used My Creative Time "Anyday Bingo & Crossword" stamp set for the I, the heart, and the U on the double heart charm. The ribbon is from last years Michael's Valentines Day Collection.   

I will be entering this cute tag in a few challenges.
