Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15

Oh Hello!  It's a Thursday and I am actually making the deadline in time for the Raspberry Suite Challenge this week (something I haven't done in MONTHS)! Here are the colors:
Lots of fun if you ask me.... Did you ask me? Ok. Here's what I came up with:
The idea to make a tag card came to me in the shower. I am sure it has been done before, but for some reason it was a brilliant idea when I was washing my feet. ; ) I used Floral Fusion for my stamp set of choice. Also I used Guidelines and Borders and Corners: Square for my background stamping. The mat for the flower image is in fact Spring Moss. It just doesn't look like it. Here is what it looks like from the side:
You can see it opens just like a card, I just cut the corners off of the top. I did a little "book binding" technique for the fold. And added a button and twine! I put some glitter in the center of the flowers to give it a little oomph, and thats all!

Hope you have a glorious day. Thanks for stopping by!
