Butterfly Tag Card

If you are looking for my 9/11 project featured today on SweetSassyDiva, go HERE.

Today I am also featured at TheBugBytes with a tag card I made for my sister-in-law for her birthday.  I am excited to be at TheBugBytes today!  Pam ispired me to blend my ink but my project ended up different than I originally planned!  Most of them do for me!!

I started out with a basic tag shape from Tags, Bags, Boxes and More.  I used the mirror function sized at 5.20w x 4.00h.  I cut out the tag at 2.46w x 3.65h and hid the slit on the top with Hide Contour.  I cut out 2 sets so I can make 2 cards at a time.
Here are the cards cut out.

I grabbed this this butterfly from Hannah Montana sized at 2.45w x 1.47h.  I cut out three just in case the first one did not turn out!  These were cut in Canson watercolor paper that I got at Michaels.

My intent was to use my watercolor colored pencils that I have had forever (from Stampin' Up) but guess what.....I couldn't find them!!  If only I had a full-time assistant/personal organizer....

I kept on going knowing that a better idea would come! 

I used my Martha Stewart Edge punch on the tag and tied a skinny yellow ribbon on.  I adhered it to my card with my ATG gun.

I used my home made Glimmer Mist to ink my butterflies.  To see how I make my Glimmer Mist go HERE.

After the butterfly dried, I put some purple gems (from the dollar bin at Michaels) on it to bling it up!!

I put a JoysLife All Around Sentiment stamp inside.
And here is my little cute card once again!
