Vintage tag

Hi All,

This time its a tag, creating a tag for the first time ;).I have completely fallen in love with the vintage style and the gorgeous lady stamp.I need to start collecting more of vintage stamp sets. Onto the tag, really interesting to make your own background and embellishments, I love to use more of pattern papers and this time making my own pattern paper was real fun, What I did was, nothing too great about it, I used one of the flower stamp from My Minds Eye and stamped it all over white CS distressed with Vintage photo,you can see this only on the sides of the tag, coz I wanted the lady to stand on it.For the first time, I made my own handmade embellishment, I always use readily available flowers ;) I made the flowers using the Cuttlebug scalloped flower die. I made a small slit across each petal, scrampled it up, opened it again very gently and distressed with Vintage photo, layered it using metallic brads. The rest is pretty much easy peasy and the tag says it all :)

Here is a pic of the tag,
