I did all the distressing, etc. prior to adhering them together. See, sister? It worked!
Did I mention I also bought a new bird on a branch die? (Both new dies are Tim creations!) The little birdie has some Distress Stickles brush over him to give him a bit of a shimmer. Cute!
I finished it off with a ribbon dyed using the same colors as those on the tag. Oh, my gosh! I forgot to mention the cute cute cute embossing on the other side of the tag. Gee, I don't know which to call the front. So I will let her decide. Sheesh! I also forgot to mention the adorable "bread tag" that also comes with the die. It was perfect for writing my name to let her know who was thinking of her.
