Quick Challenge

I'm in a small online group and we do "inspiration challenges" once a month. A picture of an ad, a piece of clothing, home furnishings, bottle labels - just about anything - is uploaded to our site and then members must make something using that as inspiration. You can take the inspiration from the color scheme, shape, function, theme - whatever. The first photo shows the challenge for June - a summer purse. The second photo shows the little tag I made using the tropical theme. A plain manila tag was covered with a tropical napkin that just happened to be similar to the purse. Then I stamped a summer quote and a bathing beauty on vellum, coloring on the backside, and attached it to the tag with some fibers. This has gone "postal" to this month's recipient.
