For my project this week, I decided to go with a jumbo tag and use a bit of Dyan's Dylusions (background) as well as Wendy's Studio 490 (background and sentiment), and a trusty old favorite Jolee's Boutique. I love the colors of this challenge so much and this tag was very fun to make. It can be used for so many different occasions as well.

  1. Gorgeous, Anita! Love this color combination and those amazing flowers!!

  2. Super tag! Love the color combo and those flowers are wonderful!

  3. Oooh, that's beautiful! The flowers look gorgeous against the background.

  4. Hi Anita this is a gorgeous tag. I agree the colours are fabulous and I love your jar of flowers. Crafty hugs Annie x

  5. O my word!!!! Stunning I love everything about this tag..the background stamping.. colour and flowers are just perfect!!! Hugs May x x

  6. My jumbo tags have just arrived Anita and I love them, so much more space to work with. Your tag is gorgeous, great background and those flowers are stunning. Tracy x

  7. Ahhhh.... I knew you would use with the Hot, hot Orange to it's full potential!!!
    I said to myself, Anita will not tone down that glow, she will fix on it and come up with a bright and beautiful creation, and was I correct?
    Well I am looking at you Tag and thinking this is the playful, gregarious and happy Anita in full flight, you did not use the DI which would tone down the Palette.... Oh no, you go for the Dylusions which are intense and radiate such glow. Your addition of the soft organza flowers speak volumes about your talent. By soften down the intensity of the Bg with these elements, you have produced a stunner.
    Well Done.

  8. Oooh, I just love that gorgeous vase of flowers, they are just super ... they are so tactile and soft looking! As always your creations are so full of technique, intrigue and wonder .... this one is a real winner!!!

  9. Anita this tag is stunning, love those flowers!!

  10. Wow, Antia, you did a fabulous job with this color challenge. I love the background you created and the vase and flowers are simply wonderful. And I chuckled at the sentiment when I realized that we both used the same stamp for our sentiment :)

    Hope you had a great weekend.


  11. I absolutely love this. I feel a copy-cat coming!

  12. Anita, I wish it was possible to reach through the screen and touch your fantastic tag because the dimension looks amazing! The background you created is absolutely beautiful. All around gorgeous-ness!! :)

  13. Wow! Love these rich, bold colors...The vase is gorgeous....and I love the script background.

  14. Wow...Anita, this tag is amazing! The vase and flowers are gorgeous! And the background is so beautiful. Love it!... :)
