On Wings of Love Tag

Hi friends!  August is fast coming to a close and I, for one, am looking forward to the Fall Season and all it brings.

My tag today is made with bits and pieces from my stash.  The papers are all K&Co.  The lace is from Joann's.  A bit of ruffled lace was used to frame the Craft Secrets image.  A crochet doily was cut in two for added layers.  The ruffled trim as well as the beaded trim and the metal embellishment were a gift from a dear friend.  The flowers and butterfly are Recollections.  The rhinestone swirl is Prima.

The paper edges were all inked and distressed.  I used foam tape for dimension between the layers.  A resin rose was placed on top of the metal embellishment.

So, what have you been up to this weekend?  I have spent over six hours in the course of three days working on a tag featuring a Julie Nutting doll stamp.  I was inspired by a beautiful card posted the other day by Pamellia Johnson.  Let me say, she makes it look so easy; but I can now say that I know firsthand the amount of work she puts into her gorgeous projects.  I am still not finished with the tag and it does not look as beautiful as her card, but I am trying!  Hopefully, I will be able to share it in the future if I'm not too embarrassed by it!  lol

Have a wonderful week ahead, dear friends.  Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by.  I appreciate all your sweet comments.
