Make It Monday 52 and ColourQ 123

 Greetings all!  For this week's Make It Monday (double-sided stamped die cut) I am stepping outside the box a little bit by making a tag.  Also couldn't resist using this gorgeous color combination from this week's ColourQ123 challenge.  To dress up the simple tag I also added some dyed silk ribbon and beads--I kinda like how it came out:

(How do you like my prop assistant?)  I used PTI's Mat Stack 2 die and stamp collection, as well as the Butterfly Dreams set (stamped then cut out the smallest butterfly).  I didn't have the exact challenge colors but I used SU Regal Rose and Groovy Guava (retired).  The beads were strung onto 1/8" silk ribbon that had been dyed with Copic marker, and secured with crimp beads onto small jump rings.  Here are some additional photos including a view of the flip side:

Well, that's all for now but I will definitely be back later today with my entry for PTI's 5th anniversary celebration--be sure to check back!
