Challenge Entry: SSS & Show Some Hands

Time for another challenge entry!  This time it's for the Simon Says Stamp & Show Some Hands Challenge.  I have ONE hand stamp, so that settled that!  I also had a limited amount of time to spend on this challenge, so I stayed small with this "Enjoy the Journey" tag.

I like the whimsy of this tag...the bright colors, the pink bike, the playful pennants... 

The Details:
  • The torn "seam" was actually a happy accident.  I was using the Tim Holtz paper distresser on the edges of the cloud paper and caught the embossed edge, tearing it about 1/2".  I liked the look, so I tore it further and applied it to the tag as if it would be ripped completely apart if not for the TH safety pin.
  • Don't you just love the element of fun that pennant banners add to your creations?  These are stamped on decorative paper, cut out, and "hung" on Papertrey Ink baker's twine.
