Moxie Fab Newbie!

I know I know...where have I been and why have I not been playing along at Moxie Fab World?? Your guess is as good as mine LOL! I guess it's one of those challenges that I've seen on others blogs, but never really investigated. After seeing the ever so pretty tag that my friend Marybeth made and entered yesterday I thought I better get on this bandwagon, this looks like a fun place to linger around at!! So here you go...my first Moxie Fab challenge entry!

I wanted to make a delicate and frilly tag. Just in that kind of mood I suppose. So I started out by die cutting two PTI: Tag Sale dies in a soft peachy cardstock. I stamped my Northwoods sentiment then layered on several PTI flower dies. The first layer is die cut from tulle. When running it through the first time I had about four layers of tulle and it didn't really cut the edges very well, they looked sort of frayed. So back to the drawing board I went. This time I put a piece of scrap cardstock on top of the layered tulle then ran it though. Perfecto!!! I used my new to me PTI: Turning a New Leaf stamps and dies (I know late to the parade again!) and let the larger leaf cluster flow from the tag, love the way this looks. I sprinkled on a few gems and glued the tag to a pretty paper doily. Then I backed this with the second tag I had cut out. I thought the back portion could hold the to/from or a little message.

 
When layering my flowers together I added a scrap from a square doily edge. It's simply pleated it into a circle, glued to the felt bloom and topped with the paper bloom.

I think I'll link this up to my friend Mynnette's Inkspirational challenge too. They have an anything goes this week! Have yourself a delightful day ~Lisa
