ATC's with Tags (July TCP Challenge)

***This is my third post for today. Please scroll down for Sweet November and C.C. Designs projects***

It's a new month and that means a new TCP challenge which is to use a handmade tag on your project. 

I am double dipping somewhat with my project today. I am participating in an ATC swap in The Cat's Pajamas forum over at Splitcoaststampers so I used this challenge to try to create a prototype. I came up with three different designs using various stamps and papers. The centerpiece of each one is a tag cut with The Cat's Pajamas Luggage Tags and I used the What's Mew, Joyride, Summer Sentiments and Reel Expert stamp sets for the images. Unfortunately, I have not decided which prototype to use.

Here are the individual photos:
