Two Fer

Hello Fellow Crafters,

Today I am sharing a unique card I came up with. I wanted to make a tag with a card. I always see so many pretty different kinds with pockets and some with the tag glued on yet I did not know how to do it.  I kept tinkering with it in my mind and came up with this. I used a doily to hold my tag in and decorated the card so when the tag is taken out it can stand as a pretty card on its own.
I know this sounds crazy but once I got to working on my card with a tag. I started thinking of how happy I am since I have been able to let my heart and mind loose and create my paper projects. And that I can be unique self...different in creating what is tickling inside to come out on paper. I had been bullied so long for being weird, thinking different from others, wanting to put a little more pizzaz in my projects and loving to do the extra work. Maybe I didn't express myself right who knows...but today I release all that old stress of being beat down for liking unique. I thank God for what and who he is growing me to be and am going to let my little light shine.
Here is a closer look at my card with a tag. My ribbon was made with 3 different type texture ribbons and scrap at that...all tied and clipped together with a lovely blinged out brad. The little bingo card with Moments on it was cut from  Bazzil Design Paper. My flowers were put together from various Recollections petals and brads. Loving the lovely Marianne Designs heart doily.
