Gettin' sketchy with it

Apologies for not getting a post up on Sunday or Monday especially after that teaser on Saturday.  The rain was miserable on Sunday, but the good news is that I have more posts coming all this week with fun stuff.  So tune in, I promise it won't disappoint. :)

Hey folks it's another fun Tip Top Tuesday and this week we have a wicked awesome sketch for you!  But don't go yet, scroll down to see the pics and find out about more to come.
Now most of you know I am a teacher by day and crazy crafter by night. :)  What you might not know about most teachers (spoiler alert) we are always looking for loopholes to rules. Ironic huh. LOL!  So when I saw this sketch I went outside the card or layout box an decided to make gift tags instead.  Who says a sketch can't be used for tags too? :)
It didn't seem fair to make only one little tag and really wouldn't be much fun to make just one, so I came up with five.  I had that kit to use up after all. :)  Mom had one of the original "bugs" when I was a kid and I still remember riding around in it with her.  It didn't quite have this custom paint job though. LOL!
If you have peeked at the sketch, then you may be asking yourself "where is the flourish that's supposed to be at the bottom?"  Well here's my other "loophole".  I used a splatter dot stamp to add some random detail to mimic the swirl.
The vw bug stamp is from PTI (and I used the coordinating die to cut it out).  The tags are office supply tags, ribbon from the stash, Bazzill tealish paper, and I backed/outlined the office tag with Kaisercraft Forage paper.
