TH Aug Honeycomb Wildflower Butterfly Tag

Got to working on Tim Holtz Aug Tag which usually takes me more than a day to complete since there is a lot of detailed work.

Had most of the TH items that TH used with exception of some colors of blue Distress Stain.

Textures used include: burlap, cork, Kraft corrugated paper, silver corrugated paper & piece of paper doily. 

Made the ticket using TH Mini Ticket die & then used TH ticket stamp.

Made the sentiment using Dymo Label Maker which I got at a great sale price of $10 reg $33 at Office Max during TX tax free weekend. I ordered the white on black tape from amazon prime since the store only had the black on white which it came with. Also got the case & power supply on amazon prime. Ordered it on a Fri and it was delivered Mon; gotta love amazon prime.

Added star.

Used a piece of Wilton paper doily for even more texture variety.

Was inspired by Lisa to add a Butterfly. You can click here to see Lisa's wonderful Tag.
