Tagged Sunflowers

It took me over a week to get this card finished, photographed, and uploaded, but here it finally is!! I made it for the Ways to Use It Challenge 158 by Julia over at SCS.
The challenge was to make a card incorporating a tag or tags. Well, I love this tag shape!! I have one that I think I got off a garage sale item. So I took it and traced it out 3 times on Kraft cardstock and cut them out. Then I stamped this cute sunflower from the Text Boxed set from Papertrey Ink in Barely Banana craft ink (SU!). Once it dried, it wasn't showing up too much so I added some edges in More Mustard (classic). The centers are Chocolate Chip ink and the leaves are in Garden Green (both from Beautiful Blossoms, PTI). The edges of the tags are sponged with some close to cocoa ink for dimension and I added some of my new Linen thread that I just got from SU!. I LOVE it!! If you like hemp, then you'll love this linen thread! It is so much easier to tie and lays nicer on the card!!
I'm sorry but I don't have the names for the brown desinger paper nor the striped desinger paper.
Thanks for visiting and have a sunflowery weekend!!
