LUCKY OR UNLUCKY ??? Anything But A Card Challenge

Over at the challenge on the Anything But A Card challenge the subject this week was Luck or Superstition.  Now I have an Aunt Mary that considered black cats crossing in front of her moving car as VERY BAD LUCK.  In fact, she has been known to make a u-turn in the middle of a city block to keep from crossing the path of a black cat. Of course, the fact that twice in a short period of weeks she had flat tires after crossing the path of a black cat crossing the street she was driving on pretty much had something to do with it !! LOL So when I came across this challenge (just a few hours before it closed) I had to do a tag (a very simple one ) in honor of her superstition about black cats. So here is my entry at ANYTHING BUT A CARD CHALLENGE 


The black cat came from the The Graphics Fairy , the wishbone from my kitchen window (where I put them to dry out after I clean them when I can get a whole one out of chicken I am boning), the tag is hand painted with Duncan acrylic paints, and I have no idea what brand the ribbon is. Lettering by my hand.
I put the wishbone on the tag to cover my good luck, so there you have it with a few hours to spare.
It was fun.
