Believe

Do you ever find yourself just wanting to make something, but not knowing what or where to start, well this was one of those times, all I knew was that I wanted to use this pretty butterfly napkin that's been sitting in the box for ages.   After applying it to a tag, I then stencilled the TH Flourish with Vintage Photo........what next?

What did we do before Tim Holtz brought out the Paperdolls, doesn't she just fit well and a computer sentiment.  I've added a piece of napkin to the back of a  money envelope and attached it to the back of the tag, so it feels more like a present.

My little mess about turned into 'useful' -  it's DIL's birthday this weekend, so I know where this is going!

Thanks for calling in,
Avril xx

I love it when play days turn out just like this. That paper doll fits so perfectly against the butterfly napkin she reminds me of a Cottingley Fairy. A beautiful gift that will be welcomed for sure.
Have a super weekend Avril.
Warmest of wishes Tracey xx

It is a gorgeous tag and I love how you added the envelope yo the back. Your play day art looks fantastic, the butterfly of the napkin and the paper doll were meant to be shown together like this.
