Butterfly Tag

Hello crafty people and welcome to my blog.  October has flown by so fast and I cant believe in less than two months it will be Christmas.  I love Christmas and my mind is full of gift ideas for family and friends; so do remember to come visit my blog during December to see what I have been up to!

In this particular post I wish to share with you a tag I created to enter The Play Date Cafe challenge and I plan to gift it to my eldest daughter. The PDCC has some awesome challenges; just click on their name above to be taken directly to the challenge on their blog.

Here is the inspirational image...........

The suggested colours are:
Cinnamon ... Squash ...Vanilla ... Sage

Here is my tag..........................

I created my tag using a cereal box and the paper on both sides is from the Glitz Pretty in Pink 6x6 paper pack.

I just love this butterfly and felt it matched the colours suggested for the challenge perfectly!

This mini envelope has a special note inside; I used a script stamp, secured a purple dragonfly button on the flap and distressed the edges with walnut stain distress ink.

See how the envelope slips out. The weight of the button helps keep the flap of the envelope secure and is secured on the flap only thus it in no way interferes with the opening and closing of the envelope. It slides in smoothly and I love how the flower in the corner just blends in with the flower cluster on the tag when secured in place.

The flower flourish was cut with my cameo and inked with walnut stain. Awesome white lace and pearl centers were purchased from local suppliers.  The delicate white lace on the bottom was part of a RAK from a very talented lady.

Close ups........

 Hope I inspired you to join the challenge!!
