Pixie Cottage Challenge #97

Happy Wednesday all!  Time for another challenge at  The Pixie Cottage challenge blog.  This week's theme is Make a Set.  That could be something like a card and matching box, a set of tags or set of cards.  There is also the sketch to follow, so you could choose to do the sketch as well. 
My daughter is getting married in March, and I made this set of tags for each of the five bridesmaid's gifts.  I know, I'm way early with these, but there is a LOT still to be done.  I used the Faith Sentiments stamp available at Michelle's Scrapbooking, cut and embossed with Spellbinders Scalloped Rectangle, and inked with Distress Ink.  The tag was cut with my Cricut, using some metallic cardstock from Hobby Lobby.  I made all the flowers (I'm getting better and quicker at making them) , except for the white one at the upper right.  The leaves are from Marianne D dies.  Added scraps of lace, some pearls, and crinkled seam binding. 

Hope you join us this week for a fun challenge!
