Zig-zagging with a Butterfly

I was in the mood to make a tag today and after realising that Mrs A's butterfly challenge ends soon I decided to combine it with a few other challenges.

A snippet of white card was cut and punched to make the tag and I stamped the dots with memento inks. The stamp is thick red rubber, cling mounted and circular in shape but I have no idea of the make. I cut some squares from another snippet of card and after running a gold pen around the edges of those and the tag I attached them in a zig-zag shape. The butterfly is a Cheery Lynn die and the flowers, gems and ribbon are from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Butterfly challenge 'butterfly and Z for zig-zag'
Cheerly Lynn Designs challenge 'tag, you're it'
In The Pink challenge 'fancy folds or shaped card'
Pixie's Snippets Playground challenge 'use snippets'
That's Crafty challenge 'tag, you're it'
Happy Little Stampers Mixed Media challenge 'tag'
Crafting Musketeers challenge 'anything but square'

Super and a brilliant interpretation of the zig zags. I love the addition of the roses. The Elves are now safely in their new homes ie. Holland/Italy and I'm keeping the front door firmly closed in case that grumpy granddad Elf turns up again from the North pole. Though truth be told I have a sinking feeling he is already on his way!!!! Thankyyou for fluttering by #42. hugs Mrs A.
