What's the Trend at Just Us Girls?

Welcome to today's post - 
it's Trend Week at Just Us Girls
and Nancy is Hosting choosing Tags. 
It can be just a Tag or a Tag on your card.

I'm not a big Tag Maker so wasn't sure 
which way I would go with this Challenge.
I have had some lovely handmade flowers
in my stash for an age so decided to  get them out
and see which one to use.
Of course the purple one popped out
(forgetting how hard that colour is to photograph)
and I just carried on from there.
My tag bases are just plain old parcel tags
which were inked, stamped, heat embossed
with a touch of glitter. Cut the bottom
with a MS punch and added some gems.
Behind my flower is some mulberry torn paper
and bits of lace etc.
I then added some organza ribbon to both tags
and crinkled it with my heat gun.
After all this was done I decided it too much
to add to a card so - it's simply a TAG!

Thanks for dropping in. 
Hope you will check out what our
February Guest Tenia Nelson and
the Jugheads created and come join in the fun.
Hope to see you in Our Gallery this week.

I had to make a tag the other day too, and like you it is not my thing. How fun to use some of your homemade flowers. The purple is gorgeous with the pearls and gemstones. Beautiful tag, Ina.
