Something wonderful is always possible

Hello everyone and HAPPY EASTER!!!
Thank you for visiting today and I hope that whatever your religious persuasion, you will have a wonderful day, and remember, -something incredibly wonderful is always possible!!
I love this sentiment and I decided to use it on the tag I am sharing today, as to me, it fits perfectly with Easter day.
The tag is made with two different sized tags, number 8 and 10 Ranger Manila tags. They were inked with various Distress Inks. The central one was embossed with a Tim Holtz texture fade and then I stamped the butterflies from the Papillion plate in the center. I stamped the background to the larger tag with several old text stamps. The ticket is a Whimsy Stamp Set I seem to remember, the flowers are from Prima and Wild Orchard Crafts and the little heart I picked up at my local Hobbycraft shop a while back. The sentiment is Tim Holtz too. The Joy brad was a left over from a Christmas DT pack. Here are some close ups still:

Hope you will have a great day among loved ones, and don't eat too much chocolate!!

Beautiful work, Astrid - I love the layered tags, and that frame looks wonderful embossed and gilded around the butterflies! The background stamping is also beautiful... Been thinking I need to get back to more stamping myself - this is wonderful inspiration!

Just got a whole lot of new stamps from a brilliant place called the Stamp Smith. This is the image that I first saw on Docraft and really liked. I asked the friend who has used it in an ATC, where she got it. Well she borrowed it from a friend who got it from ebay as a one off. But.... it had a title. I googled the title, and hey presto found the site. They have great stamps and offer a really friendly fast service. I highly recommend them!
