The filigree background was stamped on ivory then covered with vellum. The ivory scrap in the center of the blue strip as well as a layer behind the tag was stamped with the flower sprig from the tag stamp. I had 2 of this SAB set so I cut and mounted the flowers on a separate block and used the brocage blue pad. This could easily be achieved using markers instead. The ribbon is not SU It is from Hancock fabrics. I attached the tag to one of the ribbon strips with a small pewter brad. This card is actually 5 1/2 x 4 1/4 inches. My scanner somehow distorted the size. This is a Nan original!

Beautiful! I love the way the "bottom layer" of the tag is also stamped with the Filigree - how come I never have good ideas like that? The color is so soothing and the ribbon really makes it pop! Love it!
