CDBC8 - Pears with Grapes

(use keyword CDBC8)
Good Morning!  Time for another Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge.  This month's theme is Tag, you're it!  It is easy and fun to play with us.  Plus there are great prizes!
Here are the details:
1.  Just create something new following this month's theme -- Use a TAG somewhere on your creation.  It could be a sentiment tag, or use a tag as an image panel, or make a tag pullout card.  These are just a few ideas for incorporating tags.
2.  Then, post a direct link to your card, using Mr. Linky, on Laurie's Clearly Delightful Blog Challenge page. 
3.  Every participant will receive one of this month's featured Doodle Pantry images -- Mini Roses OR Birdie on a Wire -- just for participating.  In addition, ONE randomly selected participant will win all of the August 5 Doodle Pantry releases this month.  That's an $18.50 value!
4.  You must post a comment on the Clearly Delightful Blog Post.  Don't forget to mention whether you want Laurie to send you by email, either Mini Roses OR Birdie on a Wire.
5.  Only one entry per person.  Deadline for submission is Thursday, August 19.
Here is my sample for CDBC8:
I sure had fun with this month's challenge.  I combined 2 of the new Doodle Pantry images on my main panel -- the flowering pear from the Pears and Raspberries set with the new Grapes freebie image.  For my tag, I used another pear image and one of the sentiments from the Pears and Raspberries set.  All images were colored with Copics and pencils w/gamsol.  Also, I sponged the edges of my main panel and tag with antique linen distress ink.  Finishing touches include lace, jewelry spacers and bling.
