Butterfly Tag with Firefly Paper

Hi everyone!  Thanks so much for the sweet comments and birthday wishes.  I had an enjoyable, relaxing day for my birthday.  We spent part of the day at our favorite smorgasbord in Amish country where they also have an amazing unique gift shop filled to the brim with all things wonderful.  We stopped at a farm stand on the way home to stock up on some fresh produce.  There were also some extra special surprises waiting for me when I got home.  Later in the week, I met one of my cousins for lunch and also met up for a yearly get-together with friends and their families.  It's back to work tomorrow and the regular routine!

One thing that is a must for me to do each week is to spend some time crafting.  I look forward to that time so much.  Even though I didn't have much time to spare this past week, I managed to put together a quick tag.

My idea for this card was much better in my mind than what actually came out on the tag itself!  I blame it on rushing!  Anyway, I covered a pre-made tag with Prima Firefly paper.  Love that sweet collection!  I adhered part of a doily to the left side.  The pretty flowers are Prima that I have been hoarding forever.  The wooden butterflies are from Recollections and were given a generous coating of Martha Stewart glitter.  The three tiny crystals are also Prima.  I tucked in pieces of cheesecloth around the flowers, tied a bit of twill at the top, and then spritzed everything with Lemon Meringue Glimmer Mist (I think I should have skipped that part!).

Well, that's it for today.  I do hope the week ahead is a good one for all.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.
