Beautiful tags Loll, need to get moving and add some. Havent been able to comment as I was restricted to the ipad and typing wasnt working in Feedly. Finally fixed the issue, have been looking and seeing so many beautiful tags and cards.

Love that crackle paste, Loll, and the torn red panel. Glass gel. Crackle paste. Two more things to add to my wish list.

Hi Loll,
I saw this challenge on Mary's blog and thought I would have a go.
Your tag is so very lovely and wonderfully created and a super design.
Congrat to Mary on her GD spot, and her tag is also very wonderful too.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.
