Artful Times challenge--Lace and ribbons

Love this challenge as it allows me to indulge my love of sewing and vintage all in one go. I have made two tags, thought I might as well as my table was littered with all the bits. I will put them on separately again, as I still haven't figured out how to put them on the challenge site with two different links. So the motto is stick to what you can do, and don't overwork the brain.
   I covered both tags with old pattern tissue, so didn't have to colour it. Added the little girl image doing her knitting, and wrapped some lace around the dress form. Stuck down various bits of lace and old buttons, and tied some ribbon onto a small wire hanger, which I attatched with a brad. Made a small lace flower at the bottom.

Very pretty tag Wendy. Love all the little elements that you've taken so much time to include. I'm with you on the 'do as you usually do' sentiment!!
