Floral tag

Hi everyone, I finally got out one of my stencils to have a play with.
This one is Texture Flourish by Memory Box.
I used antique linen distress ink for the stencil and the flower.

I'm linking up to the challenge at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday where the theme is stencil it.
Simon Wednesday Challenge Blog

At Less is More the challenge is to add some metal.
The flower centre is a metallic circle that I coloured with pebble alcohol ink.
We'd love you to display our banner

At Cuttlebug Mania they want us to add some bling and to use a manual machine.
I used my cuttlebug to cut the tag and foliage dies. I coloured the leaves with distress ink and cut a few pieces to use.
