B is for Butterflies - Tag

Morning All 

Thought I would try something new and that is to
design Tags. Been thinking they are rather small. 

I have a bundle of tags that came with a kit from 
Craftwork Cards and thought great I know the 
challenge to enter with these. 

So here is my first Tag which I made yesterday 
using Card-io Stamps

I stamped the tag with Card-io stamps after 
I used pink distress inks to colour the background.

Then various pink colours to stamp the butterflies
Added a cut out acetate butterfly 

Added the definition and birthday wishes die cut sentiment and ribbon. 

Hope you like it

Was going to enter it for The Craft Barn Challenge but I have
another B is for .... which I think is slightly different :)

And now I think this is the one for The Craft Barn Challenge....
not happy with my B is for Badger Tag :(
that me - if I am not happy then it wont go in
so got some work to do on it before I enter it.

I would like to enter it for the following 



  1. Hello and welcome to my butterfly challenge. So nice to see you flutter by. I love the cardio range of small stamps and they are perfect for making the inked background for your pretty tag. I was going to sit out the Craft barn challenge this time but have been inspired by the other entrants. Hugs Mrs A.
