Cute Card Thursday Challenge - Tag, your it

Todays card has been created for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge, Tag, your it, Ive created mine as a sort of parcel, with the tag on top.

Ive stamped the new Tilda image onto white card and coloured her with my copic pens, then cut her out with my Label Nestabilitie die, and then with some foam have distressed the edge with some pale mauve ink. Then I created a larger label using Bev's tutorial from a piece of dark mauve card and then attached them together with some foam tape. I created a large tag from a piece of odd card, and shaped the top before using a punch to make a hole, before putting my piece of cord through Ive again used some pale mauve ink and the piece of foam Ive distressed t all around the edges, then used a greeting from the Papermania set and first with the pale mauve stamped it onto the tag, and again using a darker colour have done it again, its given it a sort of shadow effect, I was pleased with that, never tried that before. After this I threaded some cord through the hole and attached my stamped image onto it.

I then created a 8"x 6" base card, and onto this I have layered up a piece of pale mauve pearlescent card on top of this I have used a patchwork piece of paper which I found in my craft stash, and around the middle I have attached a wide Organza mauve ribbon, and then stuck the mounted tag across the centre at an angle. The two flowers are the same as the ones I created for my card yesterday that I had left over, but firstly I stuck some punched out leaves on the card and stuck them on top, the last thing I did was stick a bird button on the right hand side at the bottom.
