Tags for Pattie's Challenge (#1)

Pattie Gomez has some really nice digital images in her Etsy Shop.  When I enter her challenge, I always try to use one of her images.  They always choose a random winner and a winner who has used one of her digis.  Perhaps, I should thank other bloggers for not doing likewise because I've won the latter several times now, which gives me even more of her great designs.  The current challenge at Pattie's Creations Design Challenge #75 is Gift Tags (no cards).  I've used the 2 digis I won in their last challenge to make 2 gift tags which I'll be entering in their new challenge.
The autumn wreath is perfect for this season.  After coloring and fussy cutting the wreath, I smooshed it with a clear versamark pad, applied clear embossing powder, heat embossed and then repeated a second time for a real glossy look.

The 2nd tag I made features a vintage ice skate by Pattie.  You'll need to go to the next post to see what I made with that digi.

Besides Pattie's Creations Design Challenge #75, I am entering this tag these challenges:
Great Impressions September Challenge - Fall Colors
One Stitch at a Time Challenge #180 - Use a Digi
Crafts Too Challenge You - Challenge #3 - Week 1 - Texture with a Twist - Choose Your Own Style
(Here I used both frayed burlap and pinked canvas fabric to add physical texture to the tag and also gives it a shabby look, while the embossed and fussy cut image, fancy punched corners and bling are more chic.)
Digitally Sweet Challenge #52 - Anything Goes


  1. The Harvest Wreath looks gorgeous on your tag Debi. All the hat embossing has given it a glorious shine. Embellishing the tag with 'natural' elements has really enhanced your theme. Just imagine how extravspecial a 'Harvest' or even a 'Thanksgiving' gift will be when adorned with this tag. Good luck in our challenge this week. Ingrid xx (OSAAT Team)
