Valentine's Day


Do you remember picking petals off a flower saying, He Loves Me, He Loves Me Not as each petal was picked and dropped to the ground?  Of course, the object was to have the words He Loves Me land on the last petal.  

I made this tag using digital prints from Gecko Galz.  The background paper for the tag is Storytime which a printed out at 4x5"and then distressed with a razor blade.  I typed the word strips on the Kensington paper.  Both papers are from the Neverland paper collection.  The image of the woman touching the petals is from the Spring Maidens 1 ephemera set.  All the papers are distressed with Ranger Distress Ink in Tea Dye.

All of the flowers are from the Flying Unicorn.  I detached some of the rose petals to have them "falling" to go with the saying.  The white crocheted heart behind the image is distressed with several colors of Ranger Distress Ink including Tea Dye, Antique Linen, Tattered Rose, and Dusty Concord.  The finishing touches were a gold Starform corner sticker and a big bow.

I'm entering this tag in the following:
