I struggled a lot with picking a colour, because I had quite a few ideas for a pink card... or a red one... or maybe green? Yellow? In the end, I opted for purple - I don't create much in this colour to be honest, but I had this tiny leftover in my stash that I wanted to use for ages. It's the motif of a rose that I cut from an album cover once, and it was way too pretty to throw it away. The rose is printed in a way that makes the surface glossy, giving a magical shine to the motif. In the background, you might notice soft foliage that resembles branches and petals. To me, the association to the motif was something between "Sleeping beauty" and "Beauty and the Beast". To keep the attention on the rose, I decided to create a little tag that would feature the bloom as the main character.
I placed the rose onto a silver background paper to enhance the shiny component of my tag. For the background, I picked a purple design paper that actually depicts the starry sky. However, as the stars are rather tiny, it looks just like another shimmering background in a dark shade of purple. For a bit more bling, I added a silver sticker on the bottom of my tag, as well as a star-shaped gemstone next to the rose.
On the back side of the tag, I used light purple and white paper, which I decorated with another silver sticker. It brings a bit of bling, but still leaves enough space for a name or a message.
In the end, I picked a satin ribbon from my stash. It comes in a very light shade of purple which is almost not visible on the pictures, but I didn't want to bring too much attention to the upper part of the tag anyway, so I'm rather glad that it goes unnoticed.
