Embellish Color Label Challenge!

Finally! Here's my card for the Embellish Magazine Labels Color challenge. I've had this challenge printed out and sitting on my work table for a week or so and the deadline is 6/17 so I suddenly realized I'd better get my card made! Not only is the challenge from the beautiful new on line magazine - Embellish - but this month Waltzingmouse Stamps is sponsoring the challenge!

So the challenge is:
1) Use the colors yellow, brown and coral
2) create a label to highlight an image or sentiment.

My stamps are all WMS - the label is from Very Vintage Christmas and the sentiment it highlights is from Fancy Phrases. I embossed the card with the Textile Cuttlebug folder and punched the edge with a Martha Stewart punch. I sponged the sentiment oval before taking it out of the Nestability I cut it with. I layered it over the label with foam dimensionals.

I put a big eyelet on the end of the tag and the beautiful silk ribbon is tied through it and around the punched panel.

You can check out all the lovely challenge cards here. And you can add your own creation to Mr Linky if you get it done before 6/17/10 at 11:59 pm EST!!!
