Tag with a Pocket

I nearly missed the Artful Times challenge this time as I have been away at my Daughter's place and it slipped my mind!  Luckily I remembered in time and managed to put this card together.  The theme is 'A Tag with a Pocket' which I did but then mounted it on a card.


.
The tag is a large tag from Inkylicious and the background is sprayed with Dylusions Bubblegum Pink Ink Spray and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist Coffee Shop.  I dried with a heat gun then stamped randomly with a couple of stamps from Mini Mixed Media Backgrounds from Stamplorations in Vermillion Archival.  The flowers are die cuts using Penny Black Bashful and they are coming out of a little envelope which I used as a pocket.  I have lots of these that came from a set, I can't remember where from.  The large butterfly is by Memory Box and the small ones are Sizzix. The ribbon and pearls are from my stash and I did three score lines on each side of the black base card to add a bit of interest.

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

Artful Times - Tag with a pocket
That's Crafty - Wings and Things
Buckwells Crafty Challenge - Flowers
Darnell's Blog - NBUS (Never Before Used Schtuff) - I haven't used the Penny Black Die before or the fabulous Stamplorations stamps.  I won the stamps as part of a win from a previous NBUS challenge, thank you so much Darnell!


 These are all fabulous Challenge Blogs and are definitely worth a visit!

I hope you have a lovely day whatever you are doing.  Thank you very much for visiting me - I appreciate it so very much and I love reading your comments!  Take care.  Christine xxx

You're very welcome, Chris! I love what you've done with it and I'm drooling over the color you achieved with that deep rose hue! I'm normally drawn to the blues/greens, but this tag makes me feel all glowy!! Thank you so much for playing again in my NBUS Challenge #4!! Hugs, Darnell

Love your tag and clever little flowers .

Princess Judy Palmer said...

Those flowers are a Penny Black die? I have a flower stamp that looks like that and it is a favorite, so please to see their is a die like it too. That little pocket envelope is so sweet, with its polka dots letting out spring flowers and butterflies. The color combo is scrumptious!
