Symphony of Flowers

Welcome to a new fortnight's Tag It On challenge over at DragonsDream blog! This time the divine Helen chose a "Symphony of Flowers" as her theme and as we are following a recipe - the required elements are: it is a tag with a pinch of greenery, buttons and a butterfly or two... 
I inked a kraft card tag with Broken China and Peeled Paint Distress Inks and I sprinkled water on to give the background a little interest. The butterfly was inked with the same inks as the flowers below and the sentiment was from Tim Holtz's ChitChat stickers with Broken China Distress Ink on the edges.
The fabulous flowers and leaves are from Dyan's How does your garden grow stamp set with Wendy Vecchi stalks! The flowers and greenery were inked with Distress Inks (Spiced Marmalade, Fired Brick, Seedless Preserves and Peeled Paint). Three buttons and a little Sari ribbon finished the tag off. I am really looking forward to seeing what you will make and a huge thank you, as always, for stopping by - it is much appreciated!
