Tim times Ten Stampin' Dymonz Grand Giveaway. - Challenge #6- Gift Cardholder Tag-w/Inking Technique

Okay...We are on the downhill crawl of this challenge @ Stampin' Dymonz Scrap Shack.  And it's loads of fun......I'm really loving the ideas and inspiration on this challenge......Okay...on to Tag #6.

Challenge #6 -  Make a gift card holder tag. The gift card pocket must have at least 2 of it's corners punched with a corner punch. You must show in your picture the "card" in the pocket. The tag must contain at least 3 handmade flowers (meaning no Primas or other pre-made flowers -- you must make the flowers yourself with paper/scissors/glue), a sentiment, and the background of the tag must be inked -- not covered with paper. You may use Color Wash or other spray type ink, or pull out your stamp pads and sponges. The inking technique for the tag background is your choice; however, the background must be created using only ink
                                                                                Front View (click on pic for larger image)

I used three tags to make this tag....The front side is Kodak paper.  I inked it with TH broken china and sprayed it with Lindy Stamp Gang Gossamer Gold Moon Shadow Mist.....The middle is the Chipboard and the back is Manila paper....All were adhered to make the tag..... 
                                    Homemade Flowers (made with synthetic silk and heat embossed)

Cut three or four layers of circles (Cut with scissors...they do not have to be perfecrt circles......One smaller than the next......Use a brad to hold the circles together.  Heat emboss....and you have made a flower...... 

sentiment card- used cutting a piece of the same DCWV Tradewinds Collection stack that I used to make the pocket.........The card was inked using the same sponge I used to create the background of the tag......
