The Years Fall Away

Hello.  Welcome.  I wanted a tag for a friend who is turning 40 soon and, since we are into Autumn, I decided to use the colours of fall.  I also decided to rattle through my stash of embellishments and see what treasures I could turn up.  Found some Basic Grey chippies and a sentiment that worked perfectly for the season and the passing years.  

I coloured some card with Mustard Seed, Tea Dye, Spiced Marmalade and Festive Berries distress inks.  I embossed the card with Sizzix Leaves embossing folder and cut out my tag using Sizzix Ornate Labels #3.  

The embossed leaves weren't very clear so I inked them with the Mustard Seed DI.  I die cut Memory Box Tree of Wonder from an orange metal sheet.  The alpha stickers and chippy sentiment are both by Basic Grey.  Some funky wool and my tongue in cheek tag is ready to wow the birthday boy.  

Thanks for dropping by.  Hugz
