Joie de Vivre Vintage Tags ~ Creative Embellishments November Challenge

It is a new month (How is it November already?!?!?) - which means a new challenge is up on the Creative Embellishments Blog. Here is this month's inspiration picture and the twist for this challenge is to use wood on your project!
I was inspired by the beautiful rich colours in the Inspiration picture to create these "Joie de Vivre" Vintage Tags. I used beautiful toile papers as the background with a leafy pattern. Playing along with the fashion theme of the other papers, I have used two pieces from the Creative Embellishments Mini Dress Form Set of 6 to embellish the tags. I painted the chipboard dress forms with Acrylic Paint in Antique White and then embossed them with some pink glitter and clear embossing powder - picking up on the glittery elements of the papers. For my wooden element, I've used two mini wooden clothes pins, which I coloured black and covered with Black Diamond Stickles so that they would be glittery too!

I hope this project inspires you to play along with the Creative Embellishments challenge this month! Be sure to follow the Challenge Rules so that you're eligible to win the $50 Gift Certificate to the Creative Embellishments store!
