Tag Tuesday - The Chair

Yippee, had some time to craft!  I have been wanting to continue playing in the Tag Tuesday Challenge, but haven't had a chance since the big change.  In case you haven't been following in recent weeks, the lovely and talented Louise over at Kard Krazy, who has brought us countless challenges and inspiration, decided that she had too much on her plate to continue the weekly Tag Tuesday play.  So, she has handed over the baton to Rebecca at Blog Challenge Garden.  Thanks so much to Rebecca ("BelleSouth") for taking over!  This week she has set forth a rather challenging challenge.... "The Chair."  The chair has to be the focus, but you can have someone or something in the chair.  I hope this qualifies!!

Yes, I know that it might seem that the girl is the focus.... which is why I decided to paper piece the image and give her a rather over-the-top, girlie, flowered, chintz-covered chair.  Remember when chintz was all the rage in the 80s?  Oh, how I loved it then.  So we have our retro girl in her retro chair, and did you notice..... she has chair wallpaper! Yes indeedily, just in case my chair tag isn't chair-y enough, I added a few more chairs, LOL!  The lovely lady is from Rogue Redhead Designs' Relish Reading Plate, and the teensy chair stamp in the wallpaper is from Pink Paislee's House of Three Parisian Anthology set.  The throw rug is a cardstock sticker from Crate Paper (as is the sentiment), the trim is vintage Little Women, and the brad is GCD studios.  I think that's about it.  Hope you can play along.;)

What a fabulous tag, Jean. Love how you "upholstered" your chair. And the trim at the bottom is the perfect touch!
