What to Make with This

Awhile back, I purchased this pre-decorated burlap ATC from Recollections.  I kept looking at it and wasn't sure how to use it, so I decided to make a tag with it.

Above,  you see the ATC in its original state.  Below is what I did with it.

I covered a kraft tag with Prima's Printery paper and added a piece of crochet lace at the bottom.  On the side, I attached my beautiful Joy Crafts butterfly die distressed with tea dye ink.  To set off the ATC, I put some tea dyed cheesecloth under it as well as a Recollections flower and used foam tape for dimension.  An ornate vintage button was placed in the upper right hand corner and a piece of twill tied at the top.

I am pleased with how it turned out.  It came together fairly quickly.  I also decorated the back but forgot to take a photo of it.  I am entering this in the challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow.

Today is a long weekend here in the states celebrating Labor Day.  We have a family BBQ to go to today and then the holiday itself on Monday.  Wishing you the best in the upcoming week.  Thanks so much for taking the time to visit and the sweet messages you leave.
