Make Your Own Background Challenge

I first want to thank all my new followers! Welcome!! 

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend.

I thought I would try something different for a change. I entered the "Make Your Own Background" Challenge over at "Our Creative Corner".

If you follow my blog you know my crafting supplies are limited, so this was really fun.
I love the color purple and tons of sparkles. 
What I did was take a medium sized shipping tag and used Distress Inks "Dusty Concord", and "Milled Lavender" to ink it up a bit
You can purchase these distress inks through "The Funkie Junkie Boutique".

I then used a smaller shipping tag and layered it with glitters in multiple shades of purple, pink, aqua, gold, and more purple. I used Modge Podge in between layers.
I used white ribbon that I dyed with the "Dusty Concord" distress ink. I can not remember where I learned that little trick, so whoever you are, a huge Thank you!!!

I added a beautiful Prima rose in a shade of purple and a gold filigree butterfly. (We were asked to keep the background more as the focal point.
So this is my tag I am entering. I hope you guys like it!!

Until Next Time, Happy Sales
