Tag Challenge at Craft Hoarders Anonymous

Hi Crafty Peeps!
This week, Gloria is challenging us to create a project involving tags.

Challenge #11 Tag, You're It!
Use a tag on your project. Create a handmade gift tag. Create a tag mini album. Add tags to your scrapbook layout or your card. You may use some hoarded tag-shaped packaging or you may cut tags from scrap paper using a die cut template. Maybe you hoard shipping tags of all sizes. As long as your project contains some sort of tag, you will meet the requirements to play along!

Our sponsor this month is Crafters Companion and Spectrum Noir.

Here is the card I created as inspiration for this challenge.  I used Spectrum Noir markers to color my seam binding ribbon and to color the edges of my butterflies.  The tag is a digital tag from Etsy, the cardstock is Natural cardstock from My Favorite Things, and the patterned paper is from MME.


I  stamped the Blissful Butterflies stamp set by MFT in their Kraft dye ink.  I fussy cut them out and popped the wings up with foam squares.  Everything is edged in Tim Holtz Gathered Twigs Distress Ink.  The flowers and butterflies were then dusted with Rock Candy Distress Glitter.

Check out what all the other talented DT made for this challenge.

You really made this tag work with it's card. I am reminded (ONCE AGAIN!) that Embellishments, like butterflies and roses, work just as well, if not better, when the color is the perfect compliment, and not necessarily the hues found in nature. Being literally-minded this is one of my greatest stumbling blocks. The glitter really makes your brown butterflies stars on this beautiful card. Thanks for taking the time to share.
