Everyday is a Gift


The challenge at the Shabby Tea Room is to make something with a tag.  I decided this was the day to use my Webster's Pages that I've been hoarding, and chose this lovely peachy one.  I stamped the Circle Doily and embossed it in white and made a paper flower with Core'dinations cardstock to center over it.  (Vanessa is so right; I want to make flowers like this for EVERY card I make!)   My tag was first stamped with a music background in a pale ink and then with the sentiment.  And I added my brand new wrinkled ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbons.  I had stamped several large butterflies to use, but I went outside and noticed many small butterflies all fluttering around our blue salvia and the effect was so charming that I decided to use small butterflies on my card, picking up the aqua color along the edge of the paper.  The beautiful beaded one was made by my friend Yvonne, and the other 2 are K&Company Susan Winget grand adhesion stickers.  I'm also entering this into the Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge, to use flowers and ribbon.



Supplies: Websters Pages designer paper, Core'dinations salmon cardstock, parchment cardstock for card base, Hero Arts CG108 Circle Doily, CG222 Music Background, CL434 Just Find Me, versamark ink and white embossing powder, white pearly button, hand-made beaded butterfly, K&Company butterfly stickers, wrinkled ribbon from Really Reasonable Ribbons, white twine
