A bit of a Irish tag

Hello, Happy Tuesday,

Today we have a new challenge posted on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog

Our theme this week is St Patrick's Day 


Although Sweet Stamps carries many different images for St Patty's day
I decided to go with a tag using several of the different dies that you can find 
Using four different Basic Grey pattern papers I cut a few of my favorite flowers using these dies 
Joy Craft Slotted Flower Die ,  Cherry Lynn Designs Judy's Bloom  Floral Dies , Fern Die  I distressed the edges with ink and then layered the flowers onto my tag. Created center pearl with Black Pearl Pen, then added a layered butterfly from the small exotic butterfly die set which I then added Creative Inspirations Paints in Citrus on the wings of the top butterfly. To finish 
I added Butterfly Kisses sentiment. ribbon and twine. 


Each week Sweet Stamps has a new challenge and although you are not required to use a Sweet Stamp, if you have some we would love for you to use them and you will receive a second entry into our draw.

Our prize each week to one lucky winner is a $20.00 gift certificate to Sweet Stamp Store for use on any of our lovely rubber stamps.



I hope you will join us this week with our fun Bingo Card Challenge!

Thanks for visiting my blog 
Hugs'
