Tissue Flower & Butterfly

"Today belongs to you"
  Made this birthday tag for Courtney, Mike's "niece". She's 27, and she's actually Mike's cousin, but she "feels" more like a niece. Her mum, Janette and Mike are only 6 or so years a part and grew up together like brother and sister.

  I stamped the large flower on Tim Holtz Tissue Wrap - Melange about 3 times ; sprayed with Glimmer Mists ; cut them out then layered them. 
  The orange bead embellie is from Michaels. I also added some white gel pen dots. The smaller flowers were also stamped once on the tag; then again on the tissue wrap; sprayed with Glimmer Mists ; paper pieced on tag. 
  The ribbon is Hug Snug dyed  with DI (can't remember the colour!) Added a bit of lace at the bottom of the tag.
  The butterfly is cut out of the tissue wrap; sprayed with Glimmer Mists; added a pen nib. Also used some doodle rub-ons around the tag. The tag is from the Prima Julie Nutting Tag Pad, which has a design on the front of it already.


  The back of the tag is more of the tissue wrap scrunched and glued onto the tag. Gorgeous big butterfly! I added a personal greeting with some doodle.  

  Tim Holtz Idea-ology Tissue Wrap - Melange. Comes on roll with a cutting edge, just like wax paper. There are 2 other designs, which I must get!

  Autumn Leaves Clear Stamps - Doodle Bloom set. This is the flower set, which has become my fav (right now!). I got this at the annual yard sale at my local paper craft story,  The Cutting Garden, for only $2.00! A friend of mine bought this set at Wallmart last year for the same price. Love this set! 

  The sentiment is from this set called, "Thoughts For The Day" by Inkadinkadoo. I love all the different sentiments in this set. Different.

  Last day of our vacation and it's a rainy kind of day. Hope you had a great week and thanks again for stopping by and leaving a word or two!

i made it myself!
