Absolutely Fabulous

Hi are you enjoying the lovely Spring weather still?

I've created a blooming tag inspired by recipe #34 at Chicken Soup. I first embossed the tag with roses and painted it with some pink craft paint followed by distress crackle in picket fence. The twine is twisted paper string which I coloured with shabby shutters distress ink and I made more of the paper flowers that I love so much finished with pearl centres.

I had a paper flower left over so after having a play with the Silhouette I cut out a frame and a bird on a branch by House of Three.
It's hard not to be tempted when visiting the online Silhouette shop and I downloaded these two files at different times but it struck me that they would look perfect together and make a great card.
I cut all the elements for the 'party chica' onto plain white cardstock and coloured them using promarkers and for her sunglasses added a touch of glossy accents. The other file was 'fabulous stacker'.

.....absolutely fabulous.

Ohh, I love that tag! The paper roses are gorgeous. Actually, I think I love the bird hanging AND the "fabulous" card as well - all great projects!
