Ink colors used were Rose Red, Regal Rose, So Saffron, Mellow Moss, and Always Artichoke. For the background I used a Cuttlebug Stylized Flowers embossing folder to emboss on Mellow Moss Card stock and sponged my edges as well as the embossed images lightly with Always Artichoke ink. I used my piercing template to pierce holes all around the tag edges and tied a ribbon (from Ribbons and Bows Oh My!) to the top. I tried to work a greeting in, but placement was a problem. The lower right corner, overlapping the large rose, would have been a good position except that I did not want to cover one of the main images. I had some dead space a bit higher, but it would have bisected the card--not a visually pleasing thing to do. Finally I decided to stamp my Birthday Wishes greeting (from PaperTrey's Butterfly Wishes) on an Always Artichoke strip. It still needed something, so I added a huge Making Memories brad and one more strip of ribbon.
