happy friday :) im gonna make a quickie post and then off for my daily 4 mile walk
im entering this into a couple of challenges
cutecardthursday~stitching faux or real challenge
DLART whos having an anything goes linky party thru the end of seprtember
paperplay~thank you or appreciation
dutchdare~floral fantasy
and simply create too~ so old or vintage

for this i used my cricut and accent essentials cartridge for the flower and the leaves (accents 33 and 41 shift keys)
i took a paper doily and inked it and the flower with spunsugar distress ink and altho  it doesnt show in the photo, i  spritzed the flower with  homemade glitzyspritz (distress reinker in spunsugar).  i inked the leaves with peeled paint distress ink then added some pearls

i used my brand spankin new bow maker from 3girlsjam to make this perfect double bow. im telling you i LOVE this thing! i added a pin i made then some buttons 
then added a stamped sentiment from whimsical designs everyday sentiments set. i faux stitched on the tag and on the doily.

Shelly: What a wonderful tag! Glad you could join in our Challenge #21 - "So Old/Vintage.

PS: OK!!! I DID IT! Just HAD to go over 3girlsjam--and you KNOW I ordered both the bow maker and the [almost] free halloween ribbon. Since Arthur[ritus] moved in I can hardly pick up ribbon let alone tie a bow--so this will be perfect!!!! Can't wait to do a double bow like yours! thanks for mentioning it!
