More Tag Goodness...

Another tag here to show you, this one loaded with more Zva Creative goodness and shabby accents. Veering from my latest obsession with pink, this one is set in aqua and brown tones:

I used this sweet sentiment from Skipping Stones Design's set, Always Here.

The flowers and pearls are courtesy of Zva Creative:

I had been asked a few questions about the flower that I made on the tag I posted yesterday. I basically used this technique here, but with a much thicker band of fabric and I didn't layer the design around more than once in the circle. I then attached a brad through the center and added Platinum Stickles to the outside perimeter. can't mess it up. If it looks shabby, well....mission accomplished :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
