Here is the inspiration image for you this week:
We are calling this month "Auspicious August" and your twist is to add a tag.

My Project

I used a DS4J image of a lovely Geisha.  I used my Copic markers to color her, a Nestibilities die that came on their leaf die set and another Nestibilities die for the background.  I distressed the edges on that one with orange Color Box ink chalk. I used an embossing folder on my tag that I free drew and cut out, an orange brad and orange ribbon and purple fiber.

Team A has some wonderful cards this week using our sponsor DS$J.  They have been so generous with sponsoring us thise week.
My Projuct:
Being a tap dancer, I couldn't resist this adorable image.  Using my Copics I colored her up.  My layered heart was cut with a Creative Memories heart punch and I added a clear pearl center.  That is an EK Success border punch and hand made banner.  I had these old metal metallic "dots" that I added in the corner and the PP I got at Michael's in the racks.  The cardstock is all Bazzill.  

So.....two great challenges and no excuses not to play.  Come out, come out whereever you are, and thanks for looking!
