Red flowers & tag

Hi, my hubby is knocking down our broken timber cattle yards over this weekend. I went up to help and could hardly lift one of the timber gates that we want to keep! I escaped to make  yummy sausage rolls for lunch instead and am now hiding in my craft room!! Ssshhh...

This card is for a couple of challenges. A Blog Named Hero has a tag challenge that is drawing to a close. I think I've probably only ever measured up and made a tag for a card once. I thought I kept a chipboard copy for measuring again but it's gone! Then I remembered I had this Fiskars squeeze punch that I got on sale at Spotlight! I think that's where the ribbon came from too.

I punched the tag from a scrap of white card, the flowers are stamped onto scraps too using Versafine and irridescent sparkle embossing powder. So I'm off to play on the swings at Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

The stamp is an old Lucys one that I've had for years, and I coloured it with some pigment ink using a paint brush. Added some stickles to the centre for bling. The base is embossed with Divine Swirls. The brad and sentiment sticker are from my stash.

Thanks for visiting :)
