A Sparkly Tag

It is me again - I had some time to play today so I checked out a few challenges at found some much needed inspiration. This is what happened:


In the making of this tag I was inspired by the following:

Retro Sketch #103 - A Tag Sketch
Pile It On #8 - Thinking of You
Paper Pretties Challenge- Ribbon
Crafty Ribbons Challenge #77 - Ribbon
4 Crafty Chicks #182 - Things With Wings
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Lovely Layers

I used several dies (Impression Obsession Fence and Bow, Whimsy Stamps small doily, MFT rolled rose), papers from SU!, some silver glittery stuff from a Christmas pick, a honeycomb stencil from The Crafters Workshop, a butterfly I purchased at a convention (no name on the bag), some SU! ribbon, and a SU! Thinking of You stamp. My tag base is some corrugated cardboard from a box that I painted whited and trimmed in grey.

Hope you had a wonderful weekend! I got to go on two dates with hubby, spent some quality time with my sweet daughters, read a book, lost 1 lb (remarkable considering my dates with hubby were at restaurants) and got to create several fun things - so it was a great weekend for me!

Hugz!

  1. Love your card with the corrugated, painted cardboard. Awesome butterfly..bunches of other goodies, too.

    You did have a good weekend.
    Hubby and I walked at the park today. It was a beautiful day and so many people were out walking. Loved it. Congrats on that weight loss.
