I am linking my card to the following challenges
Flourishes – Happy Birthday
Monday Lunchtime sketch
Monday Challenge – Anything goes
Twisted Tuesday – Anything Goes
I started with an image from Flourishes Spring Blossoms and coloured with alcohol markers. I hand cut into a tag shape, rounded the bottom corners and mounted onto some American Crafts cardstock. I popped this up with foam tape and layered this onto my card front with MME Miss Caroline 6×6 paper. I used an american crafts border punch along the top. I used some ribbon to form a bow and added a button from my stash with some natural twine. The sentiment is from Inspired by Stampin Big Wishes. I finished off with some wink of stella on the flowers.
Before I go just a pic of my eldest before her graduation dinner last week.
She had her first year 12 exam today – 6 more to go!
She has 7 in total as the maths exams are split into 2.
Note: I cropped her head out of the pic because I haven’t asked her if she minds if I share!
Thanks for stopping

Beautiful floral and tag. Thank you for playing along with us at Twisted Tuesday Challenges.
Beautiful and charming Vickie!! Love the sweet tag with the blossoms! It just makes ya smile!!
Love that card – also love the understated elegance of that dress. Your make? Beautiful! Yes, exams start here next week – just failed the first attempt at licence yesterday (GD No 2) so feeling low! Music exam this morning – practical! We all hold our breath during this period – GD No 1 starts exams for 2nd year Uni next week too – may be a need for time-out at grandparents before long!
Thanks Susan. I did make the dress. Was rather simple once I got going – have also started on a version with a different neck line for her for everyday in summer. We haven’t done the licence yet she wont be 18 until December. Your grand daughter must be devastated. It is a stressful time all round. Hope they go well.
Oh that looks so pretty as a tag on your card, beautiful soft colouring on the blossoms too!
