Rhubarb Crumble & Custard??

Mmmm now there's a challenge - make a tag with rhubarb crumble and custard. Let me explain.... Dragon's challenge this week is pink for rhubarb, yellow for custard and texture for crumble.
My texture is my lovely pink velvet paper. I had this for years - far too nice to use but very strokeable. The yellow card has been cuttlebugged and swiped with pink chalk ink.
My sneakers stamp has been coloured with Prismas.
A lace was threaded through a couple of eyelets to continue the shoe theme, with a bit o' bling added 'cos that's what you have on trainers these days :) The laces have been coloured with Sakura Stardust pens (doesn't show up too well unless you click on the tag)
I really enjoying making tags, I'm getting quite a collection. Swapsies anyone??
Thanks very much for looking xx
