This was fun! Now for a few close ups.

You can not see the glossy on the windows very well in the photo. But it is there and you can see it in real life. you have the glossy out and in your hand any  way.

 Well worth all that work...making these flowers. Just love the stamped effect! You could also emboss these with ....but that is another tutorial.......

Just love these flowers! Hope you do too. Any questions on the tags or flowers, just leave a message on the comments and I shall get back to you. 
Love to read your comments any way.

 I think the stamps are well worth investing in as you can use them again and again and again.....Have a scrappy time making these and I wish you all, happy scrappy thoughts & hugs, Susan. oxoxoxox
