This was for the Wendy Vecchi Challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and show.
Sorry for the sideways pic, I was in a hurry to get it posted but I think I just missed the deadline by a minute.
This was the first I had ever heard of Wendy and her awesome stamps. Think I may need to have some! Thanks for introducing me. I hope I captured a bit of her style and it was fun making it even if I don't qualify.
I made the flower and glimmer misted it. Added a pearl to the center of a large metal paper clip. Die cut the tag and keyhole from Tim Holtz dies. The keyhole was cut using corkboard then inked and heat embossed with utee and I added a brad. I stamped the butterfly, cut it out, heat embossed it then added a few pearls. I looped the key onto a strand of pearls hanging from the clip. And the ticket and family stamps are Prima, just cut them out and tucked them in.

I created this envelope and tag for the Things with Wings challenge on the Simon Says Stamp and Show challenge blog. It will be going into a mini book I'm making for my dad.
I made the envelope in paint, printed it, cut it out and traced it onto the PP. You could also print right onto your PP. I got the idea for the envelope from the very talented Marion Smith.
I used chipboard, a rub on, die cuts- the branch was a sizzix die and the bird on the tag was a nestabilities die, grungeboard, lots of ink, 3 stamps, glimmer mist and embossed for the first time on both sides of the tag.
Sorry for the bad photos the colours are really washed out here.
