I would like to enter this card into the following challenges

Put a tag on it


Its time for a new challenge over on Eclectic Ellapu, it Bonnie from the purple's team to choose the theme this week and she has chosen

Put a Tag on it

Never make tags so this was a fun project for me. I went with stamping, distress inks, and embossing powers. I have used a script stamp for the background and the flower, and green moss and rusty orange distress inks. The flower is Tim Holtz tattered floral, which I have just sold yesterday as it wont fit in my new Grand Galibur, I am going to miss this die as I have used it so much, but I have bought lots of new ones so can't wait for the post to arrive next week

The flower stamp is a free one from a magazine, and has been embossed with clear embossing powder

I would like to enter this tag into the following challenges

I had wanted to glitter the arms up but when I did this the glitter glue went wrong and ended up all over the image so Had to colour another one up, and decided not to touch the glitter on this one.

Male cards are super hard and always struggle what to add, I cut the music notes and stars on the cricut, and have used my around the block paper tagger to add them on to the card. This is a tool I have never really used, but I liked the effect so may use it more often
