Top Dog Darby Die and Tag

It's Friday again already, and time for another project using my AMAZING die-cuts from Top Dog Dies.  Today, I'm sharing a card that I made using some My Mind's Eye patterned papers along with the new Darby Doily & Tags Die Set.  I placed it on a small glassine bag and filled the center of the glassine bag with a shaker box of mini sequins and gems.  I ran some vintage lace across the top of the glassine bag.  Somehow, it turned out looking kind of like a jar.
The smaller tag hanging from the upper left of the card is the small tag inside the Top Dog Dies Darby Doily Die and Tags Set, and I adhered a Melissa Frances rub-on to that, and hung it from the lace using a miniature safety pin.  The anniversary rub-on at the bottom is also from Melissa Frances.  The glassine bag is difficult to see.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Wednesday Challenge - Simon Says....."Shake It!" - I used a glassine bag to create my shaker box.

Crafty Ribbons Challenge Blog - Anything Goes With Ribbon - I used a very old ribbon/vintage lace across the top of my glassine bag

Craft Hazelnut's Challenge Blog - Patterned Papers - Mine are from My Mind's Eye, and I've been trying hard to use up this paper pad for quite some time now

I really do hope you will stop by to take a peek at all the gorgeous new dies (and the oldies but goodies) available now at Top Dog Dies.  There's SO much great inspiration on the Top Dog Dies Blog, and I make my posts every Friday showing my creations using these amazing wafer-thin AWESOME dies.

Have a blessed week, my crafty friends.
