A deceptively simple tag
I could have taken the easy way out and purchased the new Bo Bunny collection as all the colors would have fit and made it much easier. However, I wanted to see if I could make what I had in my stash work. It took me a couple of hours of going through all my papers to find about a dozen I thought might work. This is nothing new. I do this every time I create. I wish I could just close my eyes and just grab paper and make it work. Sadly, I am too (insert nicer term here) particular.
The top I used some of the trim to create a triple bow. I used a TH bauble to hang from it. I added a purple rose to the Mellissa Frances hanger to tie it in to the tag.
For the back of the tag (funky angle sorry), I added another layer of the plum card stock for both strength and that the texture side would show on the back as well. Gives it a more finished look. I added the same green G45 patterned paper to the back and then finished off with an image cut from the paper line as well. All edges were inked before gluing down.
