Deconstructed Sketch Gift Tags

Another relaxing weekend has come and gone. I spent some good quality time with my hubby, but it was short-lived. He leaves again for a week, training in Vancouver. :(

I had quite the productive day yesterday. I still got to sleep in, so the time change didn't really affect me, but I do feel it today! We went to a great church service in the morning, and took a walk in the beautiful sunshine in the afternoon. I finished a couple papercrafting projects/cards and we had a good time catching up with Kevin's brother, Jon and sister-in-law, Karen on skype.

For today's post, I decided to create something other than a greeting card. I saw the Deconstructed Sketch this week and thought it would be perfect for a gift tag set! I love the layers in this sketch. I checked out the Color Throwdown challenge for this week and... what a great colour combo!

I have a tag die with 3 different sized tags and used the larger one for this gift tag set. I first glued designer paper to a strip of white cardstock and then ran it through the Big Shot with the tag die. And then the fun part - decorating! :) I added an oval piece of Crumb Cake cardstock for the background. A swirl image is stamped on the top half of the circle and I put Crumb Cake designer paper on the bottom half. I then added an embossed strip of So Saffron cardstock and added small butterflies to embellish the tag. I completed it with satin Pool Party ribbon. 
I LOVE how they turned out! The colours are just so pretty together - perfect for Spring!
I left out a sentiment so they can be used for any occasion!
Here's pictures of the full set:
