A Tag and Flower Swap

A friend of mine sister had a birthday in December that I was unable to make a card for. So I decided to make this tag in it's place.  All I know is that she likes Victorian and that she and my friend are twins so I thought that this picture was a keeper.    I cut the tag shape out of chipboard and covered it with designer paper,  I distressed the edges. I put lace on the bottom and I sprayed it with gold Smooch Spitz.     I made the flowers and the charm that is on it also.  I had a lot of fun making this tag.  They can become addictive.

The Recipe for the tag is. Chipboard - backing from a paper pack
                                        Designer Paper - K&Co
                                        Lace and Ribbon - From my stash that I have no clue where it came from
                                        Flowers - Handmade by me
                                        Charm - Handmade by me from beads I got at Michael's
                                        Gold Smooch Spritz - Stampin Up
                                        Bling - Hobby Lobby

I join a flower swap for Jan at Life on the Beach  and the colors were white, purple and blue and a stick pin that matched one of the flower colors.   So I did mine to match the purple flower.   This was my first flower swap and I have become addicted so I have signed up for Feb also.

Recipes for flowers:        Purple ribbon  - Christmas ribbon from Walmart
                                      Blue chiffon - Hobby Lobby
                                      White Tulle -   Mangelson's in Omaha
                                       Bling - Hobby Lobby
                                       Beads - Joann's
                                       Cardstock - Stampin Up

I received a RAK from someone on the Scrap Beach and I want to Thank you so very much.   It is paper, stickers for a mini album.  We are going to Iowa in May so I'm going to use this paper for that.  
So here is what I got.  I'm so excited and I can't wait to use them. 

Thanks again
