Tag Tuesday -- Two Week Challenge


Today's theme is "Postcards."   Create a tag that uses postcards, has the word postcard, etc.

For my tag I used a postcard stamp from All Night Media.  I stamped it out several times, cut the images out and then layered them across my tag.  I stamped a postmark on the bottom and then added a couple postage stamps and some vintage images from Tim Holtz.   I created my flower by punching out a flower from some postage stamp paper and adding a vintage chipboard button in the center.

{Please Note:  This is a two-week challenge.  I have committed to hosting another challenge this Sunday so feel it will be better to have Tag Tuesday run two weeks.}
