The Sisterhood of Crafters Challenge

Happy Wednesday Everyone!

Are you ready for another fun challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters??  Well, I'm your host today and I hope you'll stop over and join in the fun!!

Today's challenge is:


I first thought of simply creating a TAG ... which I really don't do a lot of, but then of course I resorted back to creating a card ... with a tag on it!!  
(Cards seem to sell better than tags do at my craft shows ... go figure!)

So here's what I came up with . . .

I just love this design paper from The Paper Studio 'Kirby Teesdale Studio' pack.  It's so pretty that it really doesn't need much added to create a breath taking card.

Here I've simply sponged the outside edges of a premade Paper Reflections tag using the direct ink to paper technique with VersaColor 'Heliotrope' ink spot and stamped my Serendipity sentiment on the front with Versafine Onyx ink.

The satin ribbon is from Offray (purchased at either Jo-Ann or Michaels) and my beautiful butterfly is from the Cheery Lynn Designs DL113 Exotic Butterfly Small die set.

Of course, I'm playing with my Envelope Punch Board again and created a matching envelope out of lavender paper and lined the inside flap with the same design paper as the card.

What do you think??  
I've left it blank on the inside figuring it could be used for a variety of occasions.

A few additional challenges:

God Love Ya!
and as always . . .
