Lawnscaping Challenge #71: Tags or Treat Bags

**If you're looking for the post regarding my video tutorial over at the Lawn Fawn blog today, scroll down or click here** 

It's time for another Lawnscaping Challenge!  This week's theme is to make tags or treat bags. 

I decided to make a tag: 

I started by die cutting two of the largest Puffy Star Stackable stars (as a front and back).  I then used my distress inks to create a background on the front star (iced spruce and evergreen bough for the top and frayed burlap and vintage photo for the bottom).  To add a little texture to the background, I spritzed it with a little water and stamped the star from the Critters Ever After set.  I then stamped, colored, and fussy cut the dragon (also from Critters Ever After).  I also added a little Wink of Stella to all the yellow parts: 

To ground him (her?), I stamped the grass from Critters on the Savanna and used a brown copic marker to delineate the ground.  Finally, I stamped my sentiment and added some gold sparkle Lawn Trimmings as a tie to the tag. 

I hope you'll join in the fun!  Our sponsor is Simon Says Stamp, who will be giving away a $25 gift card to the lucky winner!
