Dear Friend - Dear Mom

First off, a tag to a friend.
 Moxie Fab has a challenge right now for several different themes.  I wanted to go with the "girlfriend" theme celebrating National Girlfriends Day, Celebrating Relationships.  I created a tag. Tags are something I don't often work with. For some reason I feel "tag" challenged but I don't know why since the format is smaller and that should be easier.  The tag shape is cut with chipboard and the Art Philosophy Close to My Heart Cricut cartridge.  I decided to emboss that with a Sizzix embossing folder with a woodgrain design.  I highlighted the woodgrain print by rubbing it with a brown Distress stamp pad.

The circle with the butterfly cut out is a tag from the same Cricut cartridge.  I cut this again a little smaller so I had a smaller butterfly to place in the cut out butterfly shape.  The zig zag circle piece behind this is also cut with the same cartridge.  The sentiment is a portion of a stamp by Printworks. 
Next up, my Card Positioning Systems card for this week.

 Want2Scrap is the sponsor this week. If you like BLING, you will like this company a whole lot.  I turned the sketch on it's side. 
The patterned papers are brand new from BasicGrey.  The flower is cut out of one of the prints.  With the Want2Scrap pink rhinestones, I cut two circles of rhinestones in half and them used the halfs to fit the sketch.
Now for a few photos...
 Both photos are taken with my Hipstamatic phone app.  I so love playing with that.  We stopped at a beach on a recent trip and I wanted to get a few photos. 
 Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
