Birthday Blog Hop Day Two ~ Karen's Creations

Today's featured blogger is my spookalicious friend, Karen from Karen's Creations.

Hi, I'm Karen from Karen's Creations. I love  creating with paper and have an obsession with making mini albums and journals.     My first thought was to make an album as this is what I love doing, and am sure everyone expected me to make.  So I did the unexpected and created a gift tag instead.
I used a re-purposed vintage layaway tag for my base, and MME's Wicked  paper.  I embellished it with a little touch of burlap, canvas border, a felt spider,  a handcrafted stick pin, vintage black seam binding ribbon, and a unique hand crafted skull button. Can you tell what I made the button out of? 

I am all about the vintage look, and I hope that I captured it in this tag.

Materials I used:
My Mind's Eye Papers
Tim Holtz Black Soot Distressing Ink
Pink Paislee Hocus Pocus Canvas border and skull
Felt Spider
Vintage layaway tag
Vintage Poker Chip

Below is the line up for you so you are sure not to miss a single chance to be inspired and to win something amazing!
