Valentine Aussie tag swap

Note ... I am so sorry I put the wrong link in to Julia's stamping ground and if you have arrived here is a link to the right post WOYWW

I am in a Aussie tag swap every month and the recipient Tanya or TK has now received her tag. So I can show you what the sneak peek was from a few days ago.    I am really liking the challenge of making tags to a theme for every month.. This month being February its a Valentine theme.  I went for a non traditional color and really kind of liked the blue..  I found this lovely vintage lady on the Free vintage digi stamps website.  I  love the hat on her with the scarf tied around her neck.  I used my new lace stamps from Kaisercraft and liked how they gave a bit of a pattern on the top and bottom of my tag.  Few pearls here and there and then that lace that I just love to use, victoria from Stampin'up.
So here is my tag...

I received my tag this month from the lovely Diane of Cardenofelan it is just the loveliest tag and there is so much detail and lovely little added touches. 
Thanks so much Diane... 

Here is Diane's tag....
