Fresh Cut Tag

Today is Freshly Made Sketch Challenge day and this week our hostess is the very talented Rita Wright.  Rita has a cool sketch for us incorporating a tag.  I love tags but rarely remember to use them!

For my card, I decided to use pops of color against a dark background.

I started with a Basic Gray base and tag.  I then used the die cuts from Fresh Cut Florals and stamped various images using purple, yellow and green inks.  For the flags I used retired DSP in a striped pattern.

I finished off the card with a clear button and some yellow twine.  Of course I put some Wink of Stella on the flowers!  You can barely see it in this photo.

The inside is finished very simply.

Thanks for looking.  Don't forget to check out the rest of the design team's card - they're sure to be awesome as always!

Gor-geous! Those flowers are beautiful by themselves, and when you put them against that gray, they couldn't be lovelier. Love this, Karren!

Pops of color, flowers, Basic Gray and a tag. These are a few of my favorite things! Thanks for the reminder that I need to go shopping for that tag die!

Oh Karren! This card is simply perfection! I love how amazing the purple and grey look together! The flowers are so sweet and the little flower on the inside is the cherry on top!
