A quick little tag

This was a quick little tag that I made following my trip to The Glitter Pot on Saturday followed by a truly uplifting afternoon of crafting with my lovely mateys Alex and Lesley ( not to mention rooting around in all of Alex's treasure trove of goodies). 

I've had this Cherry Pie stamp for a long while and saw a very similar Indigo Blu one at the GP, and so bought the Indigo Blu Flitter Glue and Peacock gilding flakes.  Alex gave me a little demo at her house of how to use the glue and it really was so easy!!  I then edge the tag with a mix of the new Peacock Distress Ink and a little Vintage Photo.

 It was my  lovely Holly's 24th birthday yesterday, so I used the tag to pretty up her present of money!.

I'm entering my tag into the following challenges:
Bunny Zoe's Crafts - Anything Goes
Ooh La La Creations - Ribbon or Twine or both
Simon Says Stamp and Show - Anything Goes

Thanks for popping in!!

This is spooky. My Flitter starter kit arrives from the GP today. I had already bought a stamp very similar to this and thought it deserved some flittering!

This is gorgeous and if mine turns out half as good I'll be chuffed,
