When I first posted my tag project using the December Stamp of the Month, I wasn’t pleased with my finished creation. It just seemed to lack something and I wasn’t inspired at that particular time….ever felt that way? Well, I had a deadline and had to get my artwork posted. So, this is what the original tag looked like…

After walking away from the project and taking some time to mull things over, I created a gift bag that I really like.



That in turn, inspired me to tweak my tag a bit…



Below is the ensemble… 


Ahhh…I feel much better now about my creations. This really is a fun & pretty stamp set to work with!
