Sundays with Crissy Challenge #30--Tags and Tickets!

Hi Everyone!
Welcome to another new challenge at "Sundays with Crissy"! Our theme for June is... "Tags and Tickets!"
This is another great challenge - I often forget that tags and tickets are great for adding sentiments,  embellishments, or even for stamping your image on. For this challenge I decided to go with Sentiment Tickets from "When the Scrap Hits the Fun", which were perfect to tuck into the side of the frame on my card, as the image already took up most of the space. I picked the gorgeous "Babe at the Beach" by Crissy Armstrong, available from the fabulous Whimsy Stamps. I decided my Beach Baby needed a beach to be toddling along... So I merged (and then double mounted) her on "The Beach Scene" from Make It Crafty.

Hope you like it!
And a bit closer...
So now it's your turn... Make your way back over to the Sundays with Crissy blog and play along too - I can't wait to see your "Tags and Tickets" creations! You can enter at Sarah's Post - Here!

Hope you all have a wonderful month!
