Happy World Card Making Day

Graciellie Design is having a flash release and sale for World Card Making Day. Be sure to visit her Etsy shop and enjoy 40% off regularly priced digital stamp sets.

Here's a fun tag I created for today using her digital set -- Spark. I know you usually think "spring" when using caterpillars and butterflies, but I feel like I succeeded in making an "autumn flavored" tag by using earth tones. 
At any rate, I love the sentiments in this set  --- they're good for any time of year!

Supplies and Tools:
Dies/Punches:  Funky Florals #1 (Sizzix - Tim Holtz,  Blossom Spellbinders Nestabillites, Circle Punch
Foil: Bronze Foil Sheet (Ranger)
Ink: Distress Oxide in these colors: Walnut Stain, Peeled Paint, Squeezed Lemonade, Wild Honey
Misc.  Sequins, Burlap String, Seam Binding, Dictionary Page
Stencil:  Bitty Grunge Stencil (Tim Holtz)
