A Hidden Tag....

Hi Susan here....

Well its Friday at last!!!! Over at The Stamping Bazaar we are starting a new challenge today and the theme is 'TAGS', you can either make a tag by itself or make a card with a tag on it, the interpretation is up to you!! For full details of the challenge and to see some fabulous creations to help give you some inspiration call across to The Stamping Bazaar Challenge Blog and join in with us.

Now onto my card...

My backing papers are all from my stash, I have stitched the edges, and punched a border down the side. My lace and pearls are from our local market. 

My hidden tag has a beautiful birthday sentiment, the edges have been stitched as the main card.
The butterflies are made using punches and pearls have been added for the bodies, I have added stickles to the wings.

I have used my absolute favourite image designed by Marina Neira, as you all know by now he is called 'Marvin with Daisies', he is available as a digi image from The Stamping Bazaar Store. I have coloured it using Promarkers.

The sentiment die is from Tickled Pink Stamps and the word sentiment is from Fairy Dust Crafts. I have slightly inked the edges of the sentiment to match the colour scheme of my card. My flowers are from Hobby Craft and Prima Flowers, I love mixing the roses with the petals from Prima, they make a lovely combination.
