'Shabby Chic'

I thought i would try something a little different whilst i had no camera and couldnt enter any challenges without any pictures(until today :-D) and here is what i came up with.

A gorgeous large 'shabby chic' tag within a tag.
The large tag is very decorative, the smaller tag fits behind the 'doors' and is embellished with pearls and stickles with a loop of lace and ribbon through the top mostly from Wild Orchid Crafts

Perhaps a great tag to give to a 'Friend' attached to a gift

I have entered this into the following challenge ONLY


'Shabby Chic Friendship Challenge' - go on have a go ........

I have edged the small and large tag with distressing inks
Used some gorgeous cardstock 'Once Upon a Time' and K&Co
Then went about adding lace, ribbon, seam binding, pearls, buttons and stickles glitter
And yes those gorgeous metal embellishments from Wild Orchid Crafts an antique bronze butterfly and an antique bronze flower
Topped off with again gorgeous flowers and buds from Wild Orchid Crafts

Above is a close up of the metal embellishment and the flowers

Above is a close-up of the bronze butterfly
The back is edge distressed with ink and a small area to write a sentiment if wished

I dont actually think these pictures do it justice enough!!!
