a fall tag/magnet

happy tuesday :) havent spent much time in my craftroom today but did make a little tag to enter into a few challenges
DLART who has a linky party going on through the end of this month
and her thankful thursday challenge which is use something a friend has given to you
cupcake crafts~stiching
the kraft journal~ autumn colors
paper playtime ~diecut or punch and gingham
whoopsi daisy~ buttons or bows
kaboodle doodles ~flowers

i didnt add any sort of sentiment yet  as i dont know for sure what i want it to say.im going to give this to a friend i think..still undecided.i used my cricut and tagsbagsboxes&more cartridge for the tag
 my item from a friend are the flowers in the upper right corner and the buttons oh and the crimped paper embelli too. it was in a card she sent to me. yep i keep everything lol 
the bow is seam binding that i purchased at the kraft outlet that i colored with distress stains  i also  bought the kraft paper for the tag  at the kraft outlet. i added a felt flower that i cut using my cuttlebug. i added a jewel to it, added some pins and some memory thread for the green squiggly sprigs. ( you can find this over in your floss section at your craft store)
i hand drew the pumpkin and did a little hand stitching. i punched a border with gingham paper using a martha stewart punch.

thanks so much for stopping by today your comments always make me smile :) thank you for that :)
have a great rest of day or evening, happy crafting!xxxshelly
