A Birthday tag

A very quick post from me today as I need to have a shower and get over to my Mum's as it is her Birthday today. This is the tag I made for her pressy. I enjoyed making my Christmas tag last week so I thought I would have a go at a Birthday one this time. I've never made them before but it's a great way of using up scraps of paper I just can't bear to throw away. I used the MS zigzag border punch and made the flower out of more scraps using the two smallest Nestie blossom dies. The sequins and flowers on wire from Crafty Bitz have been in my stash for about 2 years. No idea why I have never used them as they are so pretty. I added 3 gems and a butterfly.

Hi Marianne, Beautiful tag! Such a pretty colour combo. I agree tags are perfect for using up all the scraps we can't bear to throw away. Saying that I would have to make a lot of tags to use up all my scraps lol!

Hope you have a lovely afternoon with your mum on her birthday.
