Give us a tag at Tuesday Taggers!

For this week's Tuesday Taggers we are asking you to make a Tag! It can be on any theme you like. We have a Guest DT member this week - Georgina who has donated a lovely prize. Check out some of the wonderful projects on Georgina's blog. I probably told you already that my dear friend Lynne donated me some American magazines and I found some lovely ideas in them, one of which was this. It's a tag...

 and it opens out into...

a little card with pockets!    

Here is a close up of my shrinky butterfly.

I really enjoyed making this. The butterfly, script, real dill and sentiment are all Hero Arts stamps and the nettle leaf is MME. I'm not sure about the bumble bee, but Lavinia stamps do one very similar. The background was coloured with Mustard seed, antique linen and shabby shutters distress ink.  Thanks for looking and I hope you can join us this week!

What a great tag. I love the colors and the butterfly as well. I love butterflies but I am always struggling to find one that I like. That one is gorgeous.
And what a great idea to have inside pockets to your tag. Really amazing!!

Hi Sally.

Thanks so much for your lovely comments and the tips. I shall be checking out that site as soon as I get a few quiet minutes.
What a stunning tag. I love it. Flower heads like these are just my favourite things at the minute and the way you've made it into a card is inspirational.
Hope you are enjoying your holidays.
