gift tag made using the Art philosophy cartridge

Hello, friends!

I hope you all had a great Mother's Day weekend! I know I did. My son and I went to a great restaurant and then we poked around quaint little antique shops in McKinney. He was on his best behavior which was a gift in itself!

 Today I have a gift tag that goes with the gift bag that I made for my mother for Mother's Day using Art philosophy and the fantastic chipboard that comes with the Art Philosophy bundle.

Here is the CCR file: https://www.box.com/s/ef737076d397a498195d

I made the flower using the Art Philosophy cartridge, hot glue, and tweezer bees. I used the tweezers to roll the petals back and give the flower more of a realistic look.
I used a stamp set from Close To My Heart called Card Word Puzzle.

Melanie you always come up with the greatest ideas for projects. I believe these new cartridges will create even more! The gift bag and tag are so pretty. My niece's birthday is June 3. I think I'm going to create something similar with your ideas as a guide.
