Hello my Lovelies I get to show you the whole tag,
Julie has gotten it, so I have blog some of the making
of this, my imaginary butterfly, the mistake which
turned out okay, I added a few quotes.. 

I used my lovely green see through paper, stamped birds all
 over it,used a page metallic paper underneath,
 a napkin with birds, a feather I had in my stash, another quote.

I added the BD sentiment and a book page gessoed
and stamped, an embossed bird, painted gold, stamped
on a tissue, my pesky little friend jumped off his leaf
and told me he wished he could live in England, how
could I not make his wish come true so he went in the
box too..

The other side with some Chinese pics  from a tea bag
, an another quote. 

I made the ribbon from my rusted material I tore
tiny strips, left the edges fringed and twine.
created a couple of tags one with her name.

One for friendship, and a special nest I've been saving
for someone special, that would be my magpie cousin
Miss Julie Ann.
I love making this, my fingers were making it with love
and a song in my heart, Happy birthday my friend...
Thanks so much for visiting and letting me share this.
Have a wonderful weekend..

Wow, wow, and then WOW again, Dianne... what an outstandingly beautiful creation. The butterfly looks so stunning, and now has a wonderful setting too - I love all the little extra tags, and the glorious textures and gilding, and natural elements - it's completely stunning. And you can see exactly how much love, thought and joy has gone into it too!

Dianne...These tags are amazing! Oh wow! The deep, rich colors you've gotten for your backgrounds are amazing. I love all of the stenciling and other techniques you've used to get such gorgeous backgrounds. I think my favorite is the first one with the butterfly. That thing is just gorgeous! :) Love love the butterfly wings. They look like something out of children's illustrated fairy tale book. :) <3 Candy
