Iris tag

Good Morning!
It's almost Christmas, are you ready? I am, finally.

I'm sad I couldn't play along in Tim and Mario's 12 tags, if I ever retire, I'm on it baby!
I decided to make a tag using one of Tim's older sets, Fancy Flourish that you can buy at Inspiration Emporium. Don't forget to use my code ieirisgarden for your 10% discount!
When I saw the set in their store, the iris popped out at me and then I read the sentiment, that sealed the deal, I had to have it! Wow, it really gets you thinking, you know?
 I had so much fun digging in my bellie box for my tag. I used an Ideaology fragment charm, I covered the back of the charm with book paper and Glossy Accents. I put the Philosophy Tag on a Memo Pin. I cut the flower petals with my Tattered Florals die out of Kraft Resist paper, the leaves are cut with my Spellbinders Foilage die. The center of the flower has ideaology Foilage Findings. I glued the flower on top of  Ideaology Regal Wings. I stamped the iris with VersaMark ink and poured on the white embossing powder and heated it. I colored my tag and did the distressing with Ranger Distress Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass, Peeled Paint and Gathered Twigs ink and a blending tool. My sentiment and flourish are stamped with Archival Jet Black ink. The white trim along the bottom is from Walmart. I did the faux stitching with a tracing wheel.
Have a beautiful Christmas my friends!
