So onto my creation...and I have made another wee tag using the gorgeous new stamps by the talented Ruth for Tonic Studios...and they are just fabulous to colour..

I have used the stunning Chrysanthemum set...teamed up with some Glitz papers..a lovely MB die..punched flower and butterflies and some string and sentiment too..
