CSC #131 & MIM #107

I made this tag for CASE Study Challenge #131. This month's muse is the amazingly talented Julie Ebersole.  I just love everything she does.  I loved the white embossing on kraft with a pop of color, so that's what I pulled in my project.  Oh, and I used PTI's Doily Details die to mimic the embossed doilies on her card.  I wish I'd been able to snap a photo during the day, but life happens, so this is as good as it gets.

I also made this tag with PTI's Make It Monday #107 in mind, which was to create a card (or tag in my case) with clear cardstock as a base.  Nichole also encouraged some copic coloring, which I didn't do (no copics in this house), but I did color the image with some colored pencils, so at least I tried to maintain the spirit of that suggestion.  The next picture kind of shows how the tag opens up, so it is more card-like.  I tried to get a better picture, but every other angle I took just looked odd.  There's just a half circle inside anyway.  I haven't stamped or written anything inside yet because I'm still debating on the recipient.
Update: I finally used this tag!  Here's the gift all ready to go. :)
Stamps: PTI (Friendship Jar), Michael's (butterfly)
Ink: PTI (true black)
Cardstock: PTI (kraft, new leaf, stamper's select white)
Other: SU (white embossing powder), PTI (Doily Details Die, Turning a New Leaf Die), Paper Shapers (1 3/4" circle punch), colored pencils, ribbon
