Decorated gift tag

And a new look!  I felt like I needed a change and so I made a couple--ha ha.  After fixing up my blog for a good portion of today, I felt like really making something.  I found this beautiful image from The Graphics Fairy, and decided to fashion a paper tag.




I printed these gorgeous roses onto vellum paper and sprinkled a glittery clear embossing powder on it while it was still wet.  After heat setting it, I trimmed it with a mini scallop scissor.



I tore some rich pink card stock, and stuck the printed vellum on top with vellum tape.



I added a vellum flower, along with a tiny muslin rose with green felt leaves.  I have been dying to use that green feathery fiber for a while, so I was thrilled to get my chance today.

Hope you all like my new look as much as I do!
