BittenByTheBug2

happy monday! i sure hope you had a fabulous mothers day! this week over at BBTB2  our theme is any tag from tagsbagsboxesandmore PLUS peggylovesvintage is our awesome sponsor. she so graciously has given the DT  a few images to work with. so be sure to go see what the rest of the dt has chosen and created for you. and be sure to head on over to peggys and pick up a few  vintage images shes got some great stuff!
i need to get a few fathers day cards made so was really excited to see this image as one of our choices. i printed the  seagull in the front  2 more times and layered them . hard to see in the  pic but in the real it gives the card a little depth. i used beyond birthdays for the word dad. so ...where are those tags....well i wanted a weathered look to the card so i crumpled up some su cardstock in barely banana ( love this color!) then added some colorbox fluid chalk ( creamy brown) . in the real it looks alot like leather which was cool because i thought it gave this a book sort of look..so i cut 3 tags from page 87 of the manual at 1 at 2~3/4 and  2 at1~1/4 inches.. i added 2 to the left side and one to the right center
i though this helped look more like an old seafarers log book. i added some colorbox fluid chalk  and then used a gold leaf pen on them. the larger one i added a brad . all cardstock is Stampin up.
thanks so much for stopping by to have a look and all comments are so appreciated :) have a great rest of day! XXXshelly

Perfect image for a Dad card. I absolutely adore how you used the tags to make it look like an old log book. Looks fantastic and it's "outside the box". Hugs, Jeri
