A tag it is..........

Playing around in the craft room (obviously having a good day!) and saw this little scrap
of kraft paper just sitting there.  To small for a card.  What to do.  Well, it was almost the
shape of a tag, and I very rarely do a tag (can't remember the last one.  Maybe for a gift a
Christmas last year.....)
Well, a tag it is!

Actually turned out OK.  I'm not very 'into' the shabby, distressed look but I like the way this came out.  Guess I would call it grungy!  I know I was sure inked up by the time I was done.
The butterfly is from Our Craft Lounge.  They have a spectacular selection of stamps (clear and rubber) to choose from at really reasonable prices.  They also just finished a blog hop for their new releases.
The "pearls" are actually liquid pearls (except for those over the flowers).  The pearls over the flowers are on little clear, stiff filaments.  Bought a bunch in a bag at a garage sale for a quarter!  Gotta love a great deal!
The flowers, brads, button and seam binding are all from my stash.  The twine is from The Twinery.  The whole tag was sprayed with gold 'Smooch Spritz'.

This card may be entered in the following challenges:
Our Craft Lounge:  Anything goes
Creative Inspirations:  Set of 3 (I actually fit into all 3 sets, I think)
Getting Cricky:  Things with wings
The Secret Crafter:  The colors of Autumn
Cuddley Buddly:  Vintage, distressed, flowers
Totally PaperCrafts:  Not a card
Wags 'n Whiskers:  Anything but a card
Picture and Scrap:  Make a tag
Emerald Faerie:  Buttons
Heidi's Hobbys:  Fall colors
Craft Us Crazy:  Fall colors and/or favorite embellishment (gotta love those liquid pearls!)
Paper Pretties:  Anything but a card
