Blooming Tags

Good Morning!   What a wonderful week we have been having.  Mother's Day, my Mom's 85th Birthday, sunshine and warmth and flower shopping.  It has been FABULOUS!

Today's card was created for the Penny Black Challenge, Dies And Punches.  I was lucky enough to win a Curtain Call Challenge that Penny Black was sponsoring.  I received a $25 gift certificate.  I bought this stamp set, Blooming Tags and this lovely die, Heart String. 


I first stamped the beautiful floral tag image and hand cut it out.  Colored it with Copic Markers and added accents with a Sakura Glaze Pen.  Punched a hole in the top to add my ribbon through.  Stamped a smaller tag, added the sentiment and cut that out as well.  The large tag was also layered on black, white and lime green card stocks. 

Background is a Hexagon Cover Plate Die by Papertrey Ink.  Inside has an added border accent, Bracket Edge Duo by MFT.  Jute twine and Adhesive Rhinestone added to smaller tag for accents.  This was a FUN card to make.  I love the florals, I love the tags so combining 2 favorites, this stamp set is a Dynamic Duo for me!
In fact I had so much fun playing with the flowers I had to run out to my local nursery and buy some flowers.....6 flats to begin the planting.  I am soooo HAPPY!
May your day be HAPPY!
