Vintage-y butterfly and flower tag or the tag that Etsy built


For this tag I used a cuttlebug embossing folder on the tag and sponged with Tumbled Glass distress ink. I used a butterfly stamp from Unity here and there on the tag as well. Then I colored and cut out part of an image from Prairie Fairy Designs and colored with copics.
Cotton lace is from my stash.
twill ribbon is also from my stash and you can't see it in the pic but I stamped it lightly with a background stamp.
Tim Holtz trinket Vintage pin holds some misc beads from a destash lot I bought from She Luvs fabric at Etsy,
The crinkle ribbon I got right here at Prairie Bird Boutique
The charm came from Time and Materials also at Etsy.
The butterfly image was cut from a digital image sheet I bought at Piddix at Etsy. I have these printed at Staples for a great price and the clarity and color and non-smear properties is superb. I get most printed on 100 pound cardstock- the laser white kind and they come out fab.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
