The Red tag

Hey All:   Last summer my husband and I stayed in Morro Bay and explored the city for a day.  As we were checking out the shops on their main street I ran across this shop called Lina G's and all the trimmings.  My husband couldn't get me out of there fast enough!!  There was every kind of ribbon,  lace, and embellishment you could imagine.  I met the owner Lina, she was making a headdress,  the kind worn by Las Vegas showgirls.  The details were amazing!!!  If you in the area don't miss this place.  Of course I shopped and came home with a bag full of goodies.  Vintage lace, new lace, buttons, and embelishments.  So I loaded up as much as the hubby would let me.   The crafting hoarder in me wouldn't let me use any of my items from there, til tonight.  I'm making a tag for the Simon Says Monday Challenge.  This weeks challenge was to use Red.  I finally cracked the plastic my latest color from Tim Holtz and Ranger, Candied Apple.  The items I used  from Lina G. are the tartan pinwheels.  I'm going to have to call her and see if she can send me more.  This is my result.

Thanks for Looking!!
