Butterfly Stitches Hang Tag

This is an altered hangtag I created for the Gingersnap Creations Stitches Challenge. The "stitches" could be real or faux, so we could sew...or not sew for the challenge, as long as some sort of stitches are part of the project. I'm also using it for the Fussy and Fancy Friday Anything But a Card Challenge.
Butterfly Stitches Altered Art Tag

I started by making the hangtag itself out of some cardstock scrapbook paper that I had a scrap of. It has some great browns, tans, turquoises and white colors, and (lucky me) it also includes faux stitching. So I knew it would be perfect for the challenge.

Next I found a 3-D sticker of a rose that I liked, along with a butterfly die-cut shape I wanted to use. So I stuck the rose to the tag, and then I used a 3-D-O  (which is basically a piece of foam that has sticky on both sides) to stick the butterfly cutout to the tag and have it stick up in relief like the rose.

Then I added some lace trim to the bottom of the tag, to give it a bit more of a feminine touch. And I also added some button brads here and there to add some variety and embellishment to the tag. And I finished it off with a coordinating light turquoise satin ribbon. It almost looks a bit shabby chic to me too, don't you think? I love how it turned out.
