Cuttlebug Spot Challenge - Father's Day with Shades of Blue

We have a new challenge for you today over at the Cuttlebug Spot...where the theme is:

'Father's Day with Shades of Blue'

I've already showed you my Father's Day card...you can see it here...so I've made a tag to put on my Dad's present. I started by inking a manilla tag using 'Stormy Sky', 'Faded Jeans' and 'Chipped Saphire' Distress Inks...then embossed it using my Craft Concepts 'Bone & Paw Print' folder...perfect to use with all my doggy stamps! I sanded over the raised areas, and distressed the edges a little, then added the 'Fetching Slippers' image (by Penny Black), a Hero Arts sentiment (cut into separate words), and a piece of ribbon to attach it to the gift.


I'm also entering this tag into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Cuttlebug Spot Challenge.
