Play Date Cafe Challenge Tuscan Sun

I just love this week's colours on the Play Date Cafe Challenge - beautiful Tuscan hues.  I adore Italy and these colours just make me long to be there again.
I decided to make a tag:
Background is Distress Inks - Fired Brick, Rusty Hinge and Wild Honey used with a mask. This was then inked with a crackle stamp and some script by 7 gypsies.
The Flower is Tim Holtz die coloured with the inks and finished with an ideology flower.
The tag is My Mind's Eye, edged with distress ink, and the letters are from Adornit and edged with an Adirondak pen.
The token, pin and key are ideology.
Ribbon is Stampin' Up! and the lace was in my stash.
Mmmm think I'll go get some holiday brochures!
Thanks for looking X
