Our {FARM FRESH FRIDAY} challenge theme this week on The Greeting Farm blog is:  APRIL SHOWERS BRING MAY FLOWERS!  We want to see all of your flowery TGF creations.
I made an oversized chipboard tag.  I covered it with old book page paper and inked the edges with Distress Ink.  I then just grabbed a bunch of random bits and pieces I had laying around and got to work!
The stamp is The Greeting Farm's retired "LAUNDRY ANYA" gal.  I water colored her with Distress Inks.  The white gate is the newest die from The Greeting Farm's upcoming May release!  Isn't it gorgeous?  It's so intricate and perfect.  I love it.  :)
The flowers are from the dollar bin at Michaels.  I distressed the edges with brown ink and added some Stardust Stickles to the edges.  I stamped the script background by Inkadinkado with pink Distress Ink.
I grabbed two different lace trims I had in my scrap bin and glued them down on the back and top.  I used a little bit of the cream-colored lace as the tie at the top.
The vellum cloud was die-cut with The Greeting Farm's "Mini Cloud w/ Die" set.  The "SMILE" sentiment from The Greeting Farm's "Delicate Words" die set.  The sun and main white stitch-embossed panel were given to me in a candy giveaway, and I cannot remember the company that makes those dies. Sorry about that! I finished off the tag with a couple tiny, pink clothespins and some baker's twine.
I had a lot of fun making this flowery tag!  :)  Be sure to stop by The Greeting Farm's {SPLENDID STAMPING} blog to see all of the DT's flowery creations and to play along.  We're also showcasing the new May release stamps and dies over the next few days, so you'll definitely want to keep your eye on the TGF blog for your chances to win!
I'm entering this tag into the following challenges:
{SIMON SAYS STAMP} - Anything Goes
{OOZAK BLOG} - Pearls/Lace/Ribbon
Thanks for visiting.
