Blueberry Tag


MMM.... blueberries! This was one of three big bowls brimming with freshly picked berries at my parents' house. I cannot wait until DH and I are able to have a yard with gardens to grow yummy stuff like this! So this was the inspiration behind my tag. I get to bring a bowl of berries back with me when my hubby's home, so this is the tag I'll attach when I give them to him! I'm on my way out the door to Michael's, so I'm gonna quickly list of the challenges below!


Flourishes Timeless Tues {FTTC24 }- tag
CPS {CPS125}- sketch
TPE #23- colors {light & dark blues + red}
Stampin' for the Weekend #7- "Tangled up in Blue " {hehe, we were literally tangled up in the blueberry bushes picking the berries!}
Simon Says #12- summer fruits {blueberries, of course!}
Creative Inspirations #17- stitching {hand stitched blueberry tops}
OCC- 3+ embellies {brad, bling, ribbon, floss}

{Materials} papers: SU! {berries}, DCWV {front two layers}, gems: Michael's, ribbons: offray {green}, michaels dashes dots & checks {blue}, ink: stampcraft black, stamp: studio g, brad: sei, floss: DMC, nestabilities

Wow what a great tag! I love the way you have added a touch of bling and it is nice to see something other than a card. Those blue berries look so yummy I wish I had a bigger garden to grow some myself.
Thank you for joining us at stampin' for the weekend and good luck with all those challenges.
