Thoughts and Prayers Tag for Joyce

Edited to add directions for flowers.  See below.

I've been busy the past few days but got behind on the pictures.  There's just not enough hours in the day! 

I've never done much with tags.  I bought some a while back at a swap meet and loved using them. But I'd never made them much on my own.  But when I saw this card by the Featured Stamper this week, Joyce (aka ashjoy), I decided to give one a try.  This is what I came up with....


CAS on Sunday challeng is "Tag"it!  right now.  I hope this is CAS enough for them.

Paper Players has a color challenge this week.


I rarely get to play with them so I'm excited to get this in.  And it's the first time I've used these new In Colors.  Gotta say that I love them.

Edited to add:  The flowers were punched with the Itty Bitty Shapes Punch.  I wadded them up then unfolded them.  I used my thumbnail to separate the flower into 2 layers.  I press them into my Stampin' Pierce mat with a stylus to cup the flowers.  A little drop of glue holds the 2 layers together and a tiny pearl from the Basic Pearls goes in the center. 

All supplies are Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted
