     Here's the tag out of its pocket. I stamped images from Established Elegance onto Soft Suede dp, tore the edges and sponged them. This is layered over a die cut tag which has Shop Around images wheeled onto it. I added a rub on at the top and my popped sentiment is another rubon. I cut a petal off one of my gold flowers to make leaves for the ceramic flower and tied the charm to a vintage trinket pin.
