DCM "Little Extra"

This weeks mid week challenge was another recipe..
3 patterned papers,
5 flowers
1 piece of ribbon.

This was made using two papers from the MM Vintage Hip Collection, Gracen & One K&Co patterned script paper for the tag.
I am late getting this made as I had run out of the daisies. I hand-make them using flower punches & funky foam yellow dots. I always have some ready to make up, just a case of gluing into place & then gluing the little centres on, but the recipe called for 5 & I only had 3!!! That will teach me not to replace what I use. I bet you know what I will be doing this evening!
I punched a hole in the tag & made it too large so decided to cover it with a ribbon bow, guess what, I didn't have any!! So I had to set to & make this one. They are fiddly & I'm lazy I prefer ready mades...
I used a metal rimmed tag for the message & printed the words using font Lucida Calligraphy onto my fav product self adhesive vellum. I also printed "For You" onto the same vellum & applied it to the tag.

This card is so sweet Paula, Just love that dotty paper, too cute.
I've never heard of self adhesive vellum, how much better is that!! I think I'd actually vellum more if I didn't have to work out all the time how to attach it. Lovely card TTFN Gillian :o)
