Gina K Monthly Mix challenge

I am entering this card in the Monthly Mix challenge at Gina K Designs. Do you know why?  One of my BFFs is the hostess for this challenge.  She is none other than Donna Phelan! Her challenge is to create a tag. It can be a stand-alone or one on a card. 

I placed my tag on this card. 

I didn't have a GKD tag, but here is where invention meets necessity.  I used the slim panel from the Master layouts die one, and just cut the corners off  Then I dry embossed it with a 
swiss dot folder. I am sure that you recognize the butterfly from the Fluttering by Fall bundle. The 
 Forever is a stand alone word die. Here is the best surprise, while thumbing through my dies, 
I found the Oval dies set, and guess what..... it has a small tag on it. I happily cut several hearts along with the tag. I stamped Friend on the small tag and attached it to the large tag with gold thread. I wish that you could see the sparkle on the butterfly as I used WOS and a few gems. The black panel is from Master Layouts one too. 

Donna is a friend that I have had since we first met doing Gina's challenges waaaay back when.  I cherish that friendship forever. She will get this card. 

Stay tuned for more challenges coming your way from old crafting friends.  It's just like old times! 

Thanks for stopping by and I always appreciate your comments!
