WYEGW - Use Tag Feature or Stickles

 Hello my crafty friends!!! 
Welcome back and thank you
for visiting.For this weeks
Would You Ever Guess Wednesday,
we were asked to use the tag feature
or to use stickles.  Now, I thought that I had
signed up to use the tag feature, so I made
a tag using the CTMH Art Philosophy cartridge.
Then when I looked at the sign up sheet,
I realized that I had actually signed up to
use stickles!!  Well it is a good thing I used
plenty of stickles too...LOL.

Once again this post is very picture heavy!!

So, I was reminded on one of the blogs that I follow
about the chipboard tags that came with the
Art Philosophy bundle, so I decided to use
one of them this week.

A friend of mine had knee replacement surgery
back in March, and her recovery has been very slow. 
She is finally feeling better and I will be
meeting her for lunch today, so I thought
I would make her a little gift.

Here is a sneak peak!  This beautiful flower was
cut with the flower petal die from My Creative Time,
I added  glimmer mist, stickles, and a
glitter brad in the center..

I started by cutting out Tag 5 and the layer from
page 70 from Art Philosophy at 4".
All the paper for this project is from
My Minds's Eye "Fiddlesticks" 6 x 6 paper pad.
The sentiment is also from My Creative Time,
Floral Sentiments stamp set.

I added some Martha Stewart glitter
embossing powder in Sugar Cube.
I distressed the paper
using Tim Holtz Distress Ink
in Milled Lavendar and Antique Linen.
I added lots of bling using stickles in
Lavendar, Diamond and Platnium. 
The butterfly was from my stash.

Next I cut the Treat Bag from page 39 of
Tags, Bags, Boxes and More 2
at 11" I used plain lavendar paper to cut the box
and then covered it with pieces
from the MME Fiddlesticks pack.

 I cut this tag from the
Spellbinders Fancy Tags die,
which I then embossed and stenciled. 
The sentiment was put together
using K Andrews "Winters Wishes" stamp set. 
I also embossed using the MS Glitter
Embossing powder,
you can't see it in the picture,
but it is very sparkly.
These flowers were cut using the
Rolled Flower Die from My Creative Time.

The back was kind of plain,
so that is where I stuck the tag!!!
For the bow on the tag
and the handle on the bag,
I used a piece of lace trim
that I had.  It was white,
so I inked it with the
Antique Linen Distress Ink
to gived it an aged look.

I filled the treat bag with Dove Chocolates
because there are my friend's favorite!!
