BEADS, BUTTONS and BOWS

Bonjour to all my Tag friends!

I hope everyone is having a good week.

For the theme this week I chose a plain manila tag which I inked with Weathered Wood Distress Stain.  I then added some TH tissue tape, a couple of die cut and inked leaves, some MOP buttons threaded with embroidery thread bows and a metal flower from the Finnabair Sunrise Sunset range by Prima through which I put a jewelled brad.  I created the folding sides out of paper I had in my stash and added some eyelets to thread the ribbon through.  I finished off by adding some metal butterfly beads threaded so they would dangle from the ribbon.  Hope you like it!

Am off to have a peek at everyone else's!  I so love to see all the different interpretations of the themes each week.

A bientot
