My First Tag Swap "Twilight Team Edward"

Hello my sweet friends. First let me say that this is the very FIRST tag I have EVER made. I am a die hard Twilight fan. When I found out that Bona at "Livelovescrap" was hosting a "Twilight" tag swap I was so excited and signed up. You could choose different themes. The theme I chose was "Team Edward". I hand made everything on this tag except the trim at the bottom, prima flowers, and the pocket on the back. I purchased a "Twilight" stamp set and it went perfect for this project. :) The charm was very easy to do. I stamped the image on heavy cardstock, stamped it in Versamark, and did 3 layers of UTEE on both sides. I think it came out cute, especially with the saying "Team Edward" on it. :) I hand made the lollipop flower using Arlene's (mybutterflykisses12) technique. They were easy to make but very time consuming. Please click on the picture if you would like to get a better view of the tag.
This is the back of my tag. I bought a set of Martha Stewart envelopes that had confetti in them. I dumped the confetti out and used it as an envelope to hold a small tag with my information on it. At the very bottom I stamped "Cullens" because that is my Eddie's last name. LOL :) I forgot to mention that I distressed the sides of the tag and then went over the sides with a black paint dabber.
Finally, this is the small tag I made to go inside the envelope on the back. It has the "Cullen Crest" stamped at the top. I distressed the tag with Tea die and glimmer misted it. Again, you can click on any of the above images to get a closer look. I had a lot of fun making these tags. It took longer than I thought but I'm excited to see what the other ladies come up with. I hope you all have a wonderful week. Hugs, Jenny :)
