a note *Heartfelt Creations*

 Inspiration for this tag began with "Be Happy" by Mistra. I'm kinda clumsy when it comes to tags but Mistra's work was a great starting place! And LOOK no patterned papers! I use Kraft and plain, white cardstock with all that stamping.

I stamped this twice, colored, and fussy cut for dimension. The extra stamping is for that largest flower.

I love Prismacolor pencils. I didn't do any blending here. 
Used blue chalk and a black, Micron pen to accent.

See that subtle pink design on the Labels 4 die? That is stamped with Versamark 
and topped with pink chalk.

This Labels 4 die is ink with pink and brown Distress Inks. I used some circle punches to create a reinforced spot for twine.
