OPH Favorite Flower Challenge

This week at One Powerful Hour I have chosen the theme of "My Favorite Flower".  I seem to almost always have a flower somewhere in all of my designs since I can't have them in the house.  I have allergies to flowers and grass so I like to create pretty flowers that I can have around the house all the time.  For this challenge I have chosen my favorite flower - the Tulip.  I hope you will come and join us at OPH for this fun project and I can't wait to see your favorite flowers!!

For this project I have selected a tag and embossed it with my Cuttlebug using a leaf embossing folder. Using a decorative scissors I cut the bottom of the tag for a bit of a lacy look.  I then used Distress inks in Bundled Sage, Rusty Hinge and Barn Door and applied these all over the background of the tag, using the green to bring out the leaves.

I cut out Tulips for some paper I had from K & Company and added Stickles in Fruit Punch to all the edges of the flowers. I attached them to the tag with pop dots to give a bit of dimension to the project.  Using my trusty Dymo Label maker I created the Tulip sticker.  I then added a few words on my feelings for the flowers and a couple of buttons.  To finish off I added the blue and red ribbons.
