I started by creating a tag with a patterned paper base. I embossed red hearts on it, then used distress inks to darken the light blue background. I stamped a few places with a lined background stamp, too. It turned out fairly good, so I decided to use it on a card.
I covered my card with two different patterned papers, embellished the tag with some washi tape strips, a ribbon, a brad, and a few stickers, and added an embossed sentiment. It's definitely not my usual look, but I'm proud of myself for trying something different. (And Robbie said it looks really good!)
I'm sending this off to a dear friend of mine who enjoys seeing what new things I'm creating. Now that's something I definitely enjoy - sending handmade items to friends and family!
