'Magic Wish' Tag

Well it's another cold and snowy day here, so I had a lot of fun making something with a warm and beachy feel. I don't normally do a lot with tags, I tend to keep them very CAS, but this one is for a very special occasion.  
It is Ching-Chou Kuik's birthday and the design team are having a special challenge on Facebook.  They are even giving the wonderful image 'Magic Wish' for free if you are joining in!
Products I have used to create my tag:

  • Core'dinations Tim Holtz & Ranger Distress Collection
  • Tonic Tim Holtz Paper Distresser tool
  • Eyelet Outlet brads & eyelet
  • Stickles 'Platinum'
  • Sandpaper, lace, twine & raffia from my stash
  • Echo Park palm tree die
  • Darice woodgrain embossing folder
  • Distress Ink 'Stormy Sky'
  • Crafter's Companion pearls
  • Anita's 3D Gloss Finish
  • Sakura Gelly Roll White
  • Wink of Stella Clear
  • Lyra pencils
  • ProMarkers - Sunkissed Pink, Blossom, Baby Pink, Almond, Magenta, Carmine, Cerise, True Blue, Sky Blue, Arctic Blue, Orchid, Blossom, Buttercup, Purple, Gold, Aubergine, Plum & Mulberry

It wasn't easy to show the glitter and 3D bubbles with a photo, so I have also made a video
