Pastel Flower Tag

Wow, did I not realize how spoiled I got to working only half days!  Didn't like the half-time pay, but sure loved only working half-time.  Kind of threw off my schedule last week, trying to get back in the groove.  I finished my daughter's formal  and made a matching purse (will post picture later).  Chuck, Tyler and I did yard work yesterday and this morning, so this afternoon was the only paper playing time I've had this week.  I was tinkering with a new Cricut cartridge I got, and saw this cut called "finial" but it looks like it could be a vase.  So I cut it out as a tag, made a bunch of different flowers and created a tiny little bouquet.   Lots of Stickles on the flowers, and as patina on the vase.  Hopefully this week I'll be more in a routine so I can do some more paper creating, though I know I won't be able to keep up the pace I had been.  Just not enough hours in the day. :)
