Wild Flower Tag.....

Hello everyone: Been busy this morning with my 75gal. marine aquarium, did a much needed  water change, it was a week overdue.
But anyway, I made a tag for the Tag You're It! challenge, who's feature designer is Michele Ferguson, here is my tag.

The image is from a Power Poppy by Marcella Hawley called Go Wild. I stamped the image with Versafine Onix Black ink on a tag I punched with the SU Scalloped Tag Topper using Ninah Solar White card stock, then I colored it with Prismacolor pencils. I also embossed just the left side of the tag with a retired SU embossing folder, I forget the name at the moment but maybe you can recognize it? Easy peasy, I tied a Cherry Cobbler seam binding ribbon on top and that was it.
Here is Michele's tag that was the inspiration for mine.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
