Birthday Tag for my Man

Hello and a warm welcome to My Blog
Today I am sharing my March project for 
This month I thought I would create a steampunk / grungy masculine Tag 
for my man on his birthday .

Birthday/Valentine Tag 

Megs garden papers :
Top Hat & an Automobile
Take a Roadster for a Spin
These papers are perfect  for anything masculine . 
I feel the little pop of red is a smashing idea, creating contrast to the darkness of the earthy browns
 Red is the color of love, so I thought,  with Baden's birthday coming up ,
 what better than to create a tag , as an expression of my love . 
I covered a tiny heart shape in these papers and tied it with string .

I fussy cut the clock and light bulb and stacked them securing them with a brad .

Some close ups of the details.
 I love the look of stacked images and I added some pieces of inked chipboard .

I  feel a tag is in-complete without creating on the back side .
Here is an image of how I  decorated the back with these stunning papers.
I combined this with Baden's Birthday and Valentines day ..
" you are my world and you make my life so amazing in so many ways,
 I love you with all my heart and soul !
Happy happy Birthday my darling xoxox "

I added one of my fave Quotes,
( by Mother Teresa ) 

' Is not measured
by the number of breaths we take 
but by the number of moments that take
our breath away.'

and my words .....
"Happy Birthday my darling
You are my soul mate, my Valentine, you are my everything .
I love you with all my heart and soul xoxo"

Thanks for looking everyone, 
Until next time, take care and happy scrapping x
