"A Tag Card"

Hello Blog friends, can you believe that`s the first week of the New Year gone already!!!
I am so glad you decided to stop by my little creative corner.  I love to share and I hope you get some inspiration .  

New Years Resolution.................Try New Things.................... so here goes.
I have made a few Tag Cards in the past but none with heat embossing.  This is my first "try new thing"   Done a little heat embossing in the past, have all the gear, it is not a thing I enjoy doing or would be in any hurry to do.  I just love when I visit Buttons (pushingtherightbuttons.blogspot.co.uk) and look at all her stunning work.  Way out of my comfort zone but she produces absolutely fabulous creations. 

 Basic pink tag is approx 4 x 6
I rubbed round the edges with my Versamark Ink Pad, covered that in gold embossing powder.
I used Sheena Douglas Butterfly and Rose Leave stamps I had and embossed them
Used a panel of Kraft card also embossed
Computer generated verse which I believe is so true
Spellbinder Delicate daisies and their foliage
I mounted the whole thing onto Kraft Card.

That`s it for today
Thank you for calling by,  great to have you here.
I really appreciate you taking time to come and have a look
