TYIC#47 Butterfly Tag

Hi and thanks for stopping by!  It's time for a new Tag You're It Challenge and lucky me!  I'm the designer this time!  It's no secret that I love layers - sometimes it's all in the details.  That's why I wanted to show you some close ups of this tag so you can see it all.    The top half of this tag is embossed solid card stock, the bottom half is pattern paper.  Right down the middle there is a die cut scallop border - and to help define the separation of papers a strip of skinny MT washi.

Next for the embellishing.. some flags cut from different colors/prints peeking out from a solid die cut butterfly.  I added a sentiment on another flag shape to repeat the pattern, and lastly added some gems and pretty twine.   East right?  I hope you'll join me and the rest of the team at Tag You're It!  You have 2 weeks to play and I sure hope we'll see you there.   Just click here to jump to the blog to get all the details and see more samples from our amazing design team!

You know that, at first glimpse of this tag, I was hit with a mega bout of swooning, right? Seeing it here, with the closeups, has rekindled my condition *grin*. Love this! LOVE, I tell you!

Some many choices to choose between... that's how I felt seeing this tag for the first time.
You excel with your patterned paper pairings, you know :)

You make a great teacher, Jeanne! Your words make it all sound so easy, but creating art like this is NOT easy to me! You really challenged me with this incredible tag, but it was an honor to give it a go!! Hugs, Darnell
