SPECIAL DAY....a handmade tag

hello and welcome all!
this is flowerdisco.

today is my turn to post on nani ke ola's blog and my project for today is the cutest tag of them all. 
(just kidding-just kidding).  

Special Day 
a handmade tag
the tag's base was cut at 2.25" x 4" out of this "dreamy"cardstock from "chic tags" (very thick cs). the design has different saying on the diagonal yellow lines. 
 some of the phrases are: celebrate us, happiness defined, i've got sunshine and so on. 
also "perfectly handy" to cut out the strips and add them to your projects.
i chose today to use it as my tag's background. 
here it shows you both sides and i think both sides are adorable. i even cut out one of the clouds to add to my project.

and what do you think about the sequins?
and you know what??? they are rub ons...don't they look real?
oh my...absolutely crazy about them. 
(the sequins also come in wood veneer)
i love rub ons....don't you?

the pink polka dot paper is also from chic tags and it has been named:
"lovely"... and lovely indeed.
and the wood veneers. they have been so very popular for a long while. this one is a banner and it is beautiful. look at it again. it looks like it folds. super pretty. the package comes with 18 pieces: 3 of each one.

the blueish banner i handmade using cardstock from color hills and using one of their stamps with that font i love.

my first time using any inks from prima (ingvild bolme ones). i used the old road (grayish in color) chalk ink: smooth.  i am so very impressed. 

on the pic below you see pretty flowers on a grid paper: they are mini (2x2) squared embellishments. super cute. the package comes with 24 pretty-pretty squares.  i do not own a wink of stella glitter pen but i do have something similar so i went ahead and trace all the lines that made out the flowers. i also added a dot of glitter in the center of the sequins. hard to see, i know but such a nice detail.
see the peek a boo white border at the end? done with a martha stewart paper punch. i also used another ms to edge the pink mixed media paper i made and used here.

did you notice the background papers above? they have small banners with words as a bonus. what a nice addition.

anyway...this is the entire tag and i really hope it inspires you to make some.

as always, all supplies have been linked for your convenience.

thank you so much for stopping by.
have a great week.
