I ♥ Summer

Hi there,

today, I would like to show you a tag.

I got inspired by the 12 Tags of 2014 - June. I recycled corrugated card board as the base of the tag. Instead of the butterflies I decided to incorporate flip flops on my tag. It can be used as a bookmark for summer reading.

Here is a closeup.

I used Glossy Accents on the heart, in order to give it that extra shine and dimension.This is an easy way to create your own custom-made embellishments.

I would like to link this tag up to the following challenges:
