Tag You're It - Butterfly Hugs

I hope you're having a great day!   It's so windy here in Northwest Indiana.  This is one of those years where March rolls in like a lion - and I tell you.. she's roaring loudly.  The whole house is creaking and the power has gone out a few times this week - making me crazy since I work on a desktop computer.  Another reason to look into a lap top.. but I can't part with my big keyboard even larger screen.

 A new challenge begins today at Tag You're It Challenge!  Check out this pretty tag from our Featured Artist Marion Vagg from Made Marion Blog!

Lots to love here with a textured background in soft aqua and a bright bold bloom with a pretty gem center!    You can focus on any of the elements you like to create a tag that's all you!  

I keyed in on the soft background switching mine to yellow.  I replaced the red bloom with a pretty butterfly.
I double cut the foliage and layered them on top of each other.  Instead of stenciling a textured background I layered my tag.  The front tag in yellow has a die cut pattern letting the backer tag in white show through.  
All the dies on my design are from Poppystamps (you can get the links below).  I glittered up the butterfly using a technique I found here on YouTube from Memory Box and Poppy Creator Dave Brethauer. 
Need a little more inspiration?  Head on over to the Tag You're It Challenge blog where you can find examples from our design team and you can link up your own design!

I feel ya with the wind. We just got over a 3-day windstorm with winds gusting up to 60 mph! And is FREEZING! Luckily, I have bright and cheery designs like this sweet little tag you made to warm me up! So pretty!
