You will find some delightful inspiration pieces on the other DT blogs, but this is what I came up with... 

I chose to make a Wine Bottle tag and found some pretty rose DP in my stash.  Okay, so I wouldn't want to give this to a guy, but I thought it made a pretty tag for a girls night out.  I have used #3031 I give you a rose Tilda.  If your interested in purchasing her, or any other wonderful Magnolia images, you will find them HERE at Diana's store.

Here is a closer look at my sweet Tilda.  I love her freckles!  Aren't they adorable?  She is colored with Copic Markers on X-press It Blending Card.  I used Stardust stickles on her shoes
Of course, the theme of this challenge is "Add a Rose" so I did just that.  I covered the top of the tag with pretty roses and a butterfly and some curly-cues.
I wanted to add some stability to my tag, to I designed it to have a flap down the back and secured the tag to the bottle with a ribbon.  If this were a Hostess gift, the recipient would receive the bottle as well as the tag and the tag could be used again and again.  Wouldn't that be fun, to kind of Pay it Forward.  Who knows how many lives it would bring joy to.  The tag will also lay pretty flat (except for the flowers).

Well dear friends, that's it!  I hope you have enjoyed my post and as always, I love to read your awesome comments.

Blessings to all,
