It's Memorial Day weekend here in the States which gives us a holiday on Monday to honor those who lost their lives in service to this country.  We are having a small BBQ with family today.  Hopefully, the weather will cooperate.

Today, I have a tag to share using a fancy-shaped die from Sizzix.  I cut the base from two coordinating sheets of paper by Blue Fern for the front and back of the tag.  I used a vintage image in a resin frame as the focal point.  Cheesecloth is tucked underneath.  The frame is surrounded by various flowers (some Prima), diecut Prima leaves, and a bit of a Prima pearl swirl.  The top is capped off with a bow and a Prima embellishment.

This tag was very quick and easy to make.  I love the soft colors.  I did add a touch of gesso to the flowers for a shabby look.

Well, that's it for me today.  I haven't been feeling great due to a lot of stress that is starting to affect my health, so I hope the long weekend will help me de-stress.  I thank each of you for taking the time to stop by and for your very kind comments.  I appreciate them and you!  Have a wonderful week ahead.
