Vintage Heartfelt Designs Beach Challenge

Today is the Vintage Heartfelt Designs Beach Challenge and we were asked to make a tag using vintage swimsuits. I selected the Graphic 45 Boardwalk "By The Beautiful Sea" to use as my focus swimsuits. I thought they fit perfectly with the vintage theme.
I have a group of friends that I did a beach theme charm swap with and this purple sea glass charm is one I received. So I decided to incorporate it on my tag. I think it makes a marvelous embellishment to my tag, thanks to my talented friend Pam Henry.
Here is a closer look at the bottom of my tag, can you see where I took my Tim Holtz distressing tool, Distress inks and Tiny Attacher to give it some extra character. I also made sure that my images and ribbon floated off the tag so it would look so rectangular.
Here is my second tag, using the ladies from the "By The Beautiful Sea" paper. My tags are 5"x8". I plan to use them on some future layouts.
Here is a little closer look at the accordion ribbon and the distress pieces. I added a brad from GCD Studios and placed some of my fussy cut pieces up on pop dots to give added dimension. Anyone that knows me know I am not a fan of flat pages, tags or projects. :)
Make sure to visit all of the DT Blogs for Vintage Heartfelt Designs. You will have lots of inspired projects, tutorials and even some blog candy to be gathered along the way.
