New Tag for Joan's Gardens #12 Weekly Challenge

I think tags are taking a step up and can be a big part of the gift or even a gift itself if you put it in a pretty envelope.  Be sure to stop over to Selma's and see the gorgeous tag she has created for this week's card challenge.  We hope you will join us this week.  Be sure to check below in the Tag Challenge as there is going to be a special promotion announced!!!!

I started out using one of Tim Holtz's larger tags, covered it with my new Butterfly Garden papers, distressed the edges with a moss green ink.  Because the length of the paper is a tad shorter than the tag, I inked the bottom and added some Webster Pages green trim.  A JustRite Sentiment from the Inspire Stamp set was used.

Using the same paper, the new French Doily cut out the background for the Camiela Flower that I made using plain cream colored cardstock.  One of the new Butterfly Garden butterflies and Dragon Charms were placed on the tag for added interest and texture.

These are the punches I used to make the flower
Birch Leaf
Medium Snow Flake
Small Snow Flake

Ovoid - Large and Small
