Tagged an ATC

I have had more fun than I imagined making tags.   Joan at Joan's Gardens  has been having a weekly challenge that really has added to my stash.   Rebecca took over the Tag Tuesday challenge, and the theme she chose was vintage sewing.  While I was making this, I found myself singing the song from Disney's Cinderella where the mice were making her ball gown.  "We can do it, we can do it...we can help our Cinderelly".  I know, I'm a dork.  :)  Over at OCC they're having us make ATC, with a color challenge thrown in, so I scaled my tag down to ATC size.  The dress form was cut using my Cricut, burgundy layered over Kraft CS.  I frayed the edges a bit on the fabric scraps, which are from the formal I am making for my daughter.  I strug some beads onto the head pin and stuck it through the fabric.  Had the little scissors charm in my stash.
