Morning all. Crafty Boots Challenge this fortnight is an invitation/ tag. I couldn't make up my mind so chose to share both.
This invitation was created for my parents 40th wedding anniversary. All Mum said she wanted was something simple but effective.
The card is a 6x6 blank, the corner stamp is from what was Dimension Fourth and is stamped in Fired Brick Tim Holtz Distress ink.
The centre is again a stamp from what was Dimensions Fourth, stamped in black memento ink with the butterfly and the flower coloured with Poppy pro marker pen.

My second piece is a No 12 Manila tag from Ranger. The background is all Dylusions inks in squeezed orange, pure sunshine and postbox red. I also used cut grass through the Dylusions stencil let it snow. The black is through the same stencil but was done with pitch black paint dabber.
The stamp around the edge of the tag is from the Dylusions 'Inbetweenies' set.

The main image is a bit of a mixture of 'body parts' and are from the following sets:
Head - Bits of this
Hair - Doodle Parts
Wings - Doolally Dorris
Body - Ruby Rainbow
The frog is from Pondering Petunia and his hat is from the Christmas accessories set. The words are from the Christmas words and the baubles hanging from the coat are from the Christmas border set. The baubles are attached with alternate red and green brads that i found in my stash.
Finally i added some red stickles to the ends of the eyelashes and to the bobble on the frogs hat, giving it a bit of Christmas bling.
Thank you for looking and good luck with the Crafty Boots challenge.
