Bonjour Vintage Tag

Welcome to Friday with Stampin' D'Amour, today I have a fun vintage inspired tag with lots of pink, very girly!!!  The Eiffel tower image and sentiment are from the "French Vintage" clear stamp set.  I started with glimmer misting a tag using caramel apple glimmer mist and a glimmer screen from the "Fanciful" set. 
The flower I made with crepe paper, I found this fun tutorial on the Artful Affirmations blog so I gave it a try, very fun and easy to make.  For the image in the center of the flower, I stamped it on white cardstock, cut with a Spellbinders circle die and embossed, I then slightly inked it with walnut stain ink.  I took one of those Making Memories circle rims for the tag maker, I sanded it to make the surface of it rough, applied some embossing ink and heat embossed with walnut stain distress embossing powder, I ended up doing about 4 layers until it looked like old metal.
The sentiment I stamped on a tiny tag and inked with distress ink and added some glitter to the edges, I used a little jump ring to attach the tag to the tulle bow.  Thank you for stoping by and hope you have a wonderful day.
