Tag It Challenge

The challenge this month at Scrappy Frogs is to make a project and use a tag on it. Here is what I came up with.

I started with Kraft card stock that I cut and folded to make a 4 1/4" X 5 1/2" card base. I added a dark olive green mat cut at 4" X 5 1/4" and then my patterned paper cut at 3 3/4" X 5". I cut my tag at 3" from the Birthday Bash Cricut Cartridge. I stamped a flourish pattern on the tag with some VersaMark ink. Then using my distress inks and foam applicator I started layering on colors. I used Wild Honey, Persimmon, Spiced Marmalade, and Dusty Concord.  To finish my card, I added a narrow purple ribbon to the tag. The butterflies were cut from the Indie Cartridge at 1 1/4", 1" and 3/4". I spritzed them lightly with some Pearl Glimmer Mist. I also cut a couple of flourished from the Home Decor cartridge. I believe I cut those a 1 1/2" (sorry I can't remember the exact size). I added the flourish to the card and topped them with my butterflies. Finally I added some roses that are from Recollections. I stamped my sentiment with some Memento Tuxedo Black Ink. The sentiment says Friends fill your  life with joy, Your soul with sunshine, and your heart with love. I really liked that sentiment. I hope you will play along with us for this challenge. See you there.
