A couple of tags

Hi friends, sorry I've been a little MIA here on the blog....been busy with life, you know how it goes...spring cleaning, kids, kids, kids, cleaning... ;o)
I do have a few more cards to show you but today its time for The Shabby Tea Room challenge! 
This week's challenge is to use butterflies on your card or project! Fun! 
For the tag above, I used a digi stamp (Lilly and Leo) from this week's sponsor, Stamp Fairy. I wanted to stay with the style of the drawing so I kept everything pretty clean and fresh...which I think turned out pretty well! ;o)
 I colored the little girl with Copic markers, and gave her dress some little polka dots. The patterned paper you see at the bottom of the tag is from Crate Paper's Emma's Shoppe. Love LOVE that collection! 

I thought I would try something different this week, since I usually only make cards.
So I dressed up this little kraft pocket and manila tag! It was fun to have a different 'canvas' to work with, and you'll be seeing more things like this from me in the future! 
Anyway, for this tag I used stamps from Maya Road (doilies), PTI (sentiment), and Prima (butterfly), I also used some Emma's Shoppe Crate Paper scrap, velvet ribbon, and Martha Stewart doily. 

The tag inside the pocket was stamped with more doilies, I left it just like that so I can write a message on it. I'm really in love with the color combo I used this week...dark pink, aqua, turquoise... its so fresh! 

The Shabby Girls have some beautiful things to show you, so make sure to stop by their blogs too!
