Even though I puzzled over how to interpret the recipe, in the end I had so much fun creating this tag, which I am giving my daughter for her twentieth birthday on Friday, when - to my delight - she has asked to celebrate with a girls' day out in London's Oxford Street, shopping and lunching with Mum! Thank you for stopping by and thank you, Dragons for letting me dream with you today.

Dreaming with the Dragons - Vintage, lace, buttons and a Game!
Hello to my lovely followers and visitors to Magpieheaven. I've just made it into the Dragons' Dream Tag it on Challenge before the dragons close those gates! It's been such a busy time, but without further ado I'll show you my interpretation of the recipe, which I have to say I found quite a challenge. We had to make our tags vintage using lace and buttons, but there was a twist! Somehow a game had to be incorporated. I started with a corrugated card tag and a couple of flowers I had created already, using a Tim Holtz Tattered Florals die and my handmade, shrink plastic buttons. I had my buttons and I decided they would dictate my colour scheme.
