Tag! You're It !!

I just knew it was going to be one of those days today, when, still half asleep,  I sprayed hairspray under my arms !!     
NOTE TO SELF: Do not put hairspray and deodorant on the same shelf!!
Here's a little project that I finished last night. I have been wanting to make one of these cute little cases for a while, and thought it would be perfect to hold a few gift tags.

 These are easy peasy to make, especially with the help of this fab tutorial by Suzanne Dean.
Can you spot my deliberate mistake?? I forgot to add the little corners!!

 The tags were cut with a Sizzix die, covered with the DP and sprayed with Glimmer Mist.
Then I added a sentiment, a Penny Black hedgie, the adhesive pearls and, finally, some sparkly, silver ribbon.

I would like to enter this for the following challenges...
CES Challenge - 'Make or use a Tag'
Penny Black Saturday - 'Two or more Penny Black Images'

Stamps - Penny Black, Christmas Critters             DP - Papermania Monochrome Heather.
For the case - ribbon, pearl brads and pearls from my stash.
Tags -  Sprayed with Glimmer Mist, stamps coloured with Copics and stickles glitter. Pearls and ribbon from my stash. Sentiments from Craftwork Cards.
