When I saw this challenge to use a tag on your card over at Retro Rubber Challenge Blog I knew just the tag I wanted to use. I had recently been looking at my old papers and I have been hoarding these, I have used quite a bit but now it was time to break them out again.
The stamp is from 2002 and the paper is from 2005, so both good oldies :)
I first thought to use a vine for my trellis off to the side but felt it still needed something so I added a branch with some flowers to mimic what was in the stamp. I stamped directly onto the pattern tag and colored with markers.

- Martha Stewart - Garden Trellis punch

- Hero Arts - It's your day sentiment stamp
Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today and hope you have a great week!
Connie, this is so pretty! The bird stamp looks lovely on the patterned paper, and the punched trellis with branch and vine make it appear as though the tag is hanging in a garden. Super sweet!
What a fun tag shape - perfect for that sweet bird! Lovely soft colors! Thanks so much for playing at Retro Rubber!
Great tag idea. It would be a challenge for sure.
That's so sweet! Oldies but goodies! I definitely have vintage items in my stash lol This creation is sweet!
What a pretty card! I love the tag shape and the bird.
I love it.
Lovely tag card!
Oh Connie - this is so pretty. I love how it looks like it's hanging on the branch. What a gorgeous stamp!
Aren't these colors yummy together, Connie? There is a softness without being overly feminine, and a vintage feel, while still being modern in design. Don't you love that punch? I use it quite a bit, especially by cutting parts of it out. Such sweetness and beauty! hugs, de
It's so pretty, Connie! xoxo
What a pretty card. I love the shape of that tag!
This is so lovely ...
All the best Jan
Love the tag with the bird and gorgeous vintage feel card Connie, love the branch with the blossoms, so pretty..
Fabulous image and bag. I can relate to having items that old in my craft room and I love when I am inspired to bring the out again and use them with the newer techniques I have learned since they came out. Terrific card.
All the layers and design elements work so well together in this elegant card! Thanks for playing along with us at Retro Rubber!
