Tag Banner: Tag #1

I'm in the process of creating a small banner for my office.  I've made various banners before (usually for holidays) but before I've always used chipboard as a base.  This time, I decided to use layered cardstock in a tag shape.  I'm planning to make 7 tags for the banner, but the neat thing about this approach (IMHO) is that you can add/subtract tags to/from the banner whenever you want.  So, we'll see how it looks when I get seven tags done -- maybe I'll be done, and maybe not!

I'll be posting each tag as I finish it. Today is tag #1.  For all of these tags, I glued together 3 layers of cardstock (which ends up being a nice sturdy base).  On this tag, I wanted to use one of my stitched dresses, so it was the main focus, and I embellished around it.  I'm trying to use some of my "good stuff" that has been sitting around, so these tags will have some very nice lace and trims.

Check back tomorrow for tag #2! 

Finally, this is off-topic, but I can't believe it's already August!  How is that possible??  I need another couple of months of summer....
