Purple Pretties

For some reason, I have A LOT of purple in my supplies. I like purple. I don't love purple. Yet as I looked through my stash, it was everywhere! Hopefully, if I use as much of it as possible, I can bring in more colors that I love. (No offense to those that love purple. It's beautiful - it's just not a favorite of mine.)

I painted, distressed & sealed the tag before I embellished it. The back is painted in cream & sealed, but since it isn't very important to the piece I didn't add anything else to it. This was made as decoration more than as a "gift" tag, but either way it would be just lovely!

I wrapped a little burlap around my handmade bow & the stems of the flowers. I stamped a little flower onto the "locket"-style charm instead of filling it with paper.

This tag was submitted to wonderful challenge blogs - See below for links & details, so you can create your own & join in the fun!

I'm the exact the same! Not only my scrap supplies are full of purple, but my wardrobe too!
