A quick description today I am afraid.
A5 yellow A5 base card, border cut with a Martha Stewart punch and lined with dark red card to show off the edging.
Background card - started off orange and was inked with various Distress inks and stamped with a flourish stamp in Stazon to give a soft effect.
Cream tag coloured with the same Distress inks. Stamped with Poppies and embossed with gold sparkle WOW powder. Also added a For You stamp in the same way. Poppies coloured with Aquamarkers. Butterflies stamped, embossed with gold powder and coloured with Aquamarkers. The butterflies were cut out and wire antennae added with Pinflair glue.
Sentiment stamped in blackink on orange card and embossed with clear holographic powder. Cut out with a flower shaped Nestie as were the two layers onto which the wards are matted.
Swirls cut out with a Cricut...no I did not do them by hand!!
Everything was then assembled after adding a ribbon to the tag.
For You, Poppies and Sentiment by Sheena Douglass. Butterfly from Elusive Images.
