12 tags of 2014 - June

Today is the last day of June, which also marks the last day of the first half of 2014.  Time sure does fly by extremely fast!

Today I am sharing the much delayed 12 tags of 2014 - June:

It's always fun to play with the 12 tags.  This one is no exception.  Apparently I am still on the analogous colors kick so for the background I've used Ripe Persimmon, Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves.  For the butterflies, I felt that the colors do not pop up enough from the bright colored background, so I've colored them outside the lines to give them more definition.

I had a difficult time to put the bow onto the card!  My fabric glue  was nowhere to be found.  The bow itself did not want to stay put on the card, then added the pin and the pearl just made it worse.  Eventually, I gave on up adhesives.  I tried something new.   I punched two small holes onto the card, then I threaded the 8-inch ribbon through the two holes to tie the bow.  Because this "Paula bow" is rather bulky, no one can really tell that there holes on the card.  Further, this panel was stuck onto the card base, so the back of it is just equally clean!  This is one of those creative moments I am proud of myself! :)

Be sure to check out the other people's take on 12 tags of 2014 - June.  It is always a wonderful source of inspiration!
