Dreaming of a July Challenge??

Wow, I cant believe it's July, this year really has flown by!!  I have my very first tag  that I've created for my new term designing with Viva Las VegaStamps! to share with you today.
This is my inspiration for the new July Inspiration Board Challenge. You can find all the details here. but this is what the board looks like... 

I absolutely  love this board, it's got all my favourite things,  it's just so me! , neutral colours, a bit of  dreamy, vintage grungy splotchy goodness.. and the colour green! 
Here is what this awesome board has inspired me to create..
It started off like this.. with a little paper from 7Dots Studio. The paper I've used is again from the Nature Walk line, I really am going to be in trouble when I run out of this!!, I couldn't decide which side of the paper to use , so I've used them both!
A couple of  Viva Las VegaStamps! stamps, and of course some Distress, ( loving the colour combo of seedless preserves and forest moss! ) with a little machine stitching added in for good measure...
I couldn't decide which generation of distress marker stamping I liked better, so I layered them on top of each other.. Nothing better than a little distress marker stamping!

 a little bit more stamping, and distressing..this is the fun part.!
I then layered my stamped elements on top of my tag base, using some foam mounting tape to give some of the  elements a little extra height, and finished off by adding the word Dream, using yup you guessed it some of my favourite alphas  and star confetti from UmWow Studio and it was done!

and as always a couple of close ups...
