Fruity tag card

This is a card for the sketch on the Pixie cottage for challenge 3:

I thought it would be good to make a tag for Dragons dreams 'tag it on' challenge 22: 'fruits of my labour' - so I chose to use my cherry stamp again, coloured with copics. It was stamped on to a piece of BG slightly coloured paper and lightly sanded and distress inks applied - tattered rose and old paper.

The card is also good for:

Everybody art 65: 'distressing' - not just on the tag, but also the torn paper behind it
365 cards day 234: Tuesday's trio: 'pearl, tag, ribbon'
Artful inkables Think ink Tuesday: 'make a tag'
My time to craft 65: 'tags so much!'
C.R.A.F.T. 25: recipe: '1 tag, 1 sentiment, 1 ribbon'
Squigglefly 28: 'make a thank you card'

Papers are BG Indian summer (apart from the piece that the tag's stamped on - unknown BG scrap!)
