PaperCutzChallenges #84

                                                      happy friday :) 
this week over at PCC mary has chosen our challenge to be any theme but using 3 patterned papers. ya'll know how i love my paper so this was way fun :)  
i made a tag  this week. dont know why but for some reason im just gettin into liking making these.. maybe all the tim holtz stuff im watching has something to so with it  ;)  isnt he just  the cutest boy under the sun!
so..anyway...what i did was use my cricut and sweethearts cart for the tag and the heart distressing with tims distress inks and spritzing with homemade glimmer mist. . the bird is from storybook cartridge. i added  distressed stickles  and rock candy to it. a teensie pearl for its eye. the flowers i made by cutting the heart flower (shadow feature) from sweethearts cartridge..5 for one flower and 8 for the other onto ivory or buff colored cardstock.. pierced a hole in the center then colored them with distress stains  (wild honey and spun sugar) then added some spritz to these. then i added distressed stickles. i stuck a brad in the middle to hold them together then put a dab of liquid pearls (buttercup) on the top of the brad for the leaves i used paper raffia that i colored with distress stain. added a bit of ribbon and a couple of kaiser kraft pearls.  the lovely paper is prima
thanks so much for taking a peek and your comments warm my heart :) have a great weekend :)xxxshelly
