Teddy Bo Challenge - TAG IT!

Hi everyone,
I'm sorry I didn't get this card posted on Wednesday as planned, but as it was such a beautiful day DH and I decided to visit Mottisfont Abbey for the day. It's a National Trust property near to where we live and we often go there, it's such a lovely and peaceful place.
My eldest son came over for the day yesterday so I didn't get a chance again and I'm expecting my youngest son today, so this is quickly being posted before he arrives.

Apologies for the wonky (technical term) photo, DH took loads for me and this was the best, the sunlight seems to play havoc with the colours. I usually scan my cards, but the flowers made that impossible here.
This is my card for Teddy Bo's current challenge, they want to see a tag on your card which gave me a chance to use my new Marianne tag die, I used my Marianne frame die too. The end result of these is lovely, but it's a bit of a pain getting the dies out in one piece.
As I confessed in my previous post I bought a new image for this challenge as I wanted to give it a slightly vintage look (not sure that I succeeded)

Card Details:
* Image - Teddy Bea 'Bea with a little friend'
* Colouring medium - Promarkers
* Papers - Papermania 'Blueberry Hill'
* Punch - MS Doily Lace
* Dies -  Marianne Design 'Cirkels' (this is the correct spelling!) & 'Labels' dies
* Sentiment - Woodware 'Circular Greetings'
* Everything else from my stash

I'm looking forward to doing some more crafting in the next few days as I've been very naughty again and had another little spending spree. My ever patient DH won't be too pleased (more stuff to pack for the move) but I'm sure Joanna Sheen loves me at the moment!
