Embellished TAGS

Recently on a trip to Michael's i discovered a cute collection in the $1.50 bin.
My Neighbor scrappymo! showed me the new books she was going to use to create organization in her life.  I instantly fell in loves, so i had to go have a look.
Teapots, peacocks, butterflies oh my!  I was so excited.  And they had glitter too!
Cards with envelopes

Seeing all these wonderful cards i figures why not try making some of my own tags for scrapbooking.  I'm sure i will be able to create more things just with some time and peace and quiet.
I didn't do too much to them and i though later i may add ribbon but right now i like them the way they are.

I punched the tags out making sure to get the peacock and tea pot.  The others are embellished using a couch stamp and a candelabra  stamp.  I added swirls & edging stamps and glitter and bling to make them pretty.  (Too bad the pictures are awful)

That's it.  I'm going to do a little more creating and come up with more.  They may look nice on the front of cards.
Thanks for having a look and to make me happy leave me a few little words of joy letting me know what you think.
