January Sketch and Dare Challenge "Jumbo Tag" by Peggy Lee

First I want to wish you all a
 Happy New Year 2015!
With 2014 coming to an end and 2015 starting,
I want to share with you more artwork
with using the Monthly Sketch & Dare Challenges!

Here is the Sketch designed by design team
member Tonya! 

This month's dare is to use something PINK! 


  1. Use at least one Die~Namites Die in your creation.
  2. Use the SKETCH! It can be interpreted (loosely or exactly) as a card, layout or altered piece!
  3. Incorporate the DARE into your creation.
  4. Mention the Die~Namites Die you used in your blog post.
  5. Link back to the Die~Namites Die.
  6. You have until the last day of the month to post your creation on your blog and link up to this post.  **PLEASE add a link to your direct post, not your entire blog.**

Each participant will receive one entry into our random drawing
for each entry into the challenge.

 A random winner will be chosen from eligible participants for a
$25 Gift Certificate to Die~Namites Dies.

Here is my take on this month's sketch & dare challenge....

I used one of my "favorite" Die~Namites Die!!
"Leafy Branch"
Leafy Branch
I decided I wanted to create a "Jumbo Tag"
 (I would love to create more jumbo tags to have on hand to give away).
I love having a basket full of tags, cards, etc to
hand out to my family and friends.

This month's dare challenge is to use "pink"!!

My favorite color-I knew the Graphic 45 
"A Ladies Diary" paper collection was perfect...
I cut my tag out of chip board and covered with black card stock 
along with the paper collection. Inked the edges with Distress ink-vintage photo.
Size of my jumbo tag is 4 x 8.
I began to fussy cut out the flowers and clocks 
and knew the Die~Namites Die "Leafy Branch" was exactly
what the jumbo tag needed! I die cut three leafy branches 
out of green card stock. I cut the die cut pieces apart to be 
able to tuck in around the paper flowers, doily and paper collection. 
Final touches I colored seam binding with
 Tattered Angels glimmer mist in
Wedding Pink (got the pink theme going)
added vintage mother of pearl buttons.

I just love how this jumbo tag came out...
Hope you join us by playing with your creative supplies 
 using the Monthly Sketch & Dare Challenge, here!

Thanks for stopping bye today,
Peggy Lee
