While reorganizing my room I found these Chipboard shapes from Studio 18 and thought I would use them on the next card I made.

Studio 18-- Chipboard label and Butterfly
Hot off the press , Dazzles -- Tiny words and phrases
g.c.d. -- Melody Ross, designer collection, homespun chic paper
Spellbinders Decorative Labels eight die
Liquid Pearls -- Lemon Yellow and White opal
Glimmer mist
Distress stain

On the sentiment label I first misted it with Glimmer mist, and I didn't like how the embossing on the tag wasn't showing up so I also added some ink on the embossed areas.  On the butterfly I first applied Distress stain in brushed pewter and I wanted to high light the embossing on that too, so I went around that with blue marker.  It always feels good to use somethings that I had forgotten I had.
I like how the dazzles give you the look of embossing but is much quicker.

Hope you had a good weekend and the week ahead holds many good things,
Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment, I really appreciate it,
