the tag collage. . . .

stamp set from Hero Arts was recently their stamp of the week and I took advantage of it.  Lots of fun elements in this set!  


I made this card for the Simon Says anything goes challenge.  I stamped the tag on some patterned paper, but the pattern in the paper is so subtle that you can barely see it.  The large flower was stamped on more pp and distressed with broken china distress ink.  The leafy branch and smaller flowers were also stamped with distress inks.  And, look at those beautiful sequins for the flower centers!!!  I know, I went overboard, didn't I?  :*)   The sentiment is also from Hero Arts.
