TH April 2015 Tag

I struggled with making this Tim Holtz April 2015 Tag. I made several to mess up or not like what it looked like over & over but did not give up. You can see TH Tag by clicking on TH the challenge listed below.

I do not have the TH flower stamps so I used a Stampendous Daisy stamp. 

I do not have the cool Tim Holtz spritzer/marker tool and my TH markers were not working to my liking for me. I used a spritzer spray bottle & TH Distress Ink. I did use a TH marker for the center of the Daisies and then for extra sparkle I used Wink of Stella clear pen on the Daisies centers. 

I'm not good at sewing/stitching so I used a Sharpie black marker for faux stitching.

I do not have the TH script die for the word "beautiful" but used my Cricut to cut the "beautiful" word. 

I do not have the block dies for the word "WORLD" and used TH Alphanumeric dies to spell out "WORLD." 

Added a TH mirrored star. Added ribbon.
