BWT - Tag You're It!

Hello Everyone and welcome to the January Beautiful World Tour!!  Once again, it’s time to get those passports ready, grab a cup of coffee and prepare for take off as once again we prepare to travel the world and be inspired by talented girls from all parts of the globe!  If you've come by my blog via Sasha's Blog, then you are in the right place - if not, you may want to start back at the Flourishes Blog so you don't miss any of the gorgeous creations along the way!  We do have some sad news, our dear friend Betty has stepped down and we understand that life has become very busy for her, but we will miss her and wish her all the best!

Don't forget - there is a free Flourishes stamp set (your choice of stamp set) to be won, simply by leaving a comment!!!  You won't know which blog is the chosen blog of the month, so make sure you have the best chance by commenting on each of the BWT team blogs during today's hop and check back on the Flourishes Blog on February 4th!

Today the girls have been inspired by Meredith who has challenged us to make TAGS!  I have to admit I was never really excited about making tags once, but I really love it now!!  They are small, quick and FUN!  :)
I've cut a piece of purple bazzill using Flourishes' Perfectly Pierced Classic Hourglass Die for the tag shape.  Next I traced the inside of the die onto Prima Meadowlark DP to create the next layer and stamped the sentiment from Sentimental Favorites in Memento Tuxedo Black onto it.  Around these layers I've attached some seam binding and tied it into a bow.  The flowers are from the Hydrangea stamp set and have been stamped in Memento Gray Flannel and coloured with Copics (Hydrangea Collection).  I've cut it out with Small Circle Nestabilities and matted it with darker purple bazzill cut with Lacey Circle Nestabilities.  I've then cut another panel using the Perfectly Pierced Classic Hourglass Die and secured some dark purple satin ribbon in between the two layers for the loop.  To finish I've added a Prima Meadowlark rose and Prima pin to the bow.
Stamps - Hydrangea, Sentimental Favorites (Flourishes)
Paper - Blending Card, Purple and Dark Purple Bazzill, Prima Meadowlark DP
Ink - Memento Tuxedo Black, Gray Flannel
Accessories - Copics, Flourishes Classic Hourglass Die, Seam Binding, Prima Rose, Prima Pin, Purple Satin Ribbon, Foam Tape.

What a beautiful tag. I LOVE the purples and all the dimension you've added. What a unique use of the ribbon. Never made one with the ribbon sticking out the bottom. I have to do this with my next tag.
