Belli Tag Card

Hi Everyone, Wednesday is here and today the Belli Challenge is to use a metal tag on your card! I used 120# watercolor paper and my SU markers to color in this Sugar Nellie "Talking to the Birds" image. I left the spiral punched edge of the paper in tact after I tore it out of the notebook just because I could... :) I used an old fashioned office supply key tag, but I removed the white paper inside the rim of the tag to allow the little birdcage image to show through. I added three silver eyelets to carry through the "metal" theme. I then tied a teeny bit 'o ribbon to the metal tag rim (complete opposite of the ribbon on my card from this past weekend!!). Head over to the Creative Belli Blog to see more samples of ways to use metal tags! Hopefully you'll be inspired to try the challenge and link YOUR card that you made with a metal tag!! If you upload your card to SCS or to PCP, please use keyword CBC70. TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
