Butterfly Tag!

Cut the tag out with my Cricut and embossed with Forest Branches folder and sanded. Then added that wonderful gold butterfly sticker I got from my blogging pal "Merry" (Not sure if you want me to mention your real name!!). Then added a few iridescent plastic butterflies to the corners and some twine to the top as a hanger. Next I cut out 10 balloons using a punch set from my other blogging pal Annmaree...this is such a cool set!!! Yes those balloon shapes made those two flowers!!! How neat is that?? I can't take the credit for the idea because it was all Annmaree!! I stamped some script on them after cutting out and adhered a gold dew drop to the tops! Voila! A pretty tag! :)

Wanted to mention that I noticed a few new followers...welcome and thanks for joining my blog! You are all so wonderful and I appreciate the nice comments everyone always leaves me! Sure puts a big smile on my face everday! :)

Thanks Stacie for mentioning me......I like to keep that bit of mystery to my name. :-)

Wonderful tag, really love the embossing folder you have used. And what a clever way to create the flowers. I have never thought to do that.....clever Annmaree.

This is fabulous. I love the colour cardstock you used on the tag itself. Great job with the flowers. I thought they were an embellishment. Can't believe you made them yourself, they are so perfect. You really rocked the challenge. Thanks for joining us this week at Practical Scrappers.
