Cassandra's Tag Swap Victorian Floral Boot

Hello Friends :-)
Today I have a gorgeous tag that I created to swap with a 
I started out with images from both Gecko Galz and the
Graphics Fairy to create a Collage paper doll and die cuts
with my Silhouette SD.  I am also sharing this with the
FlutterbyWednesday Challenge (Great inspiration please check it out).   
Here is my tag below.
The Victorian boot with flowers and Part of the Butterfly Fairy that I created are Gecko Galz images.  The flowers in the Fairies' hair and on her waist, and bumble bee are from the Graphic's Fairy. Here is a close up below.
I used gold jewelry wire to create the hanger on this tag so Cassandra can hang it on her Christmas tree if she likes.  I just love Christmas..and having many trees with beautiful ornaments.  I applied Stream Alchol ink to the back of a Ranger fragment and stamped my flower stamp with Stazon jet black on the front to add a little hangy embellie.  I did this for my Sister DT member Micupoftea's Voila ink challenge this month at Bella Creations.
I inked all edges of my tag with Ranger's vintage photo.  I used some trims and stick pin from this month's kit
I added the little flat back pearls from the kit to the buttons on the boot to add a little depth.  I also painted some leaves in the lower left using Delta acrylics in Wedgewood green and shaded with Dark Forest Green.  My first love it tole painting so it only seemed natural to add a little painting to this tag for Cassandra.  Lucky me, over at The Flying Unicorn there are a few challenges I will be entering this beauty in.  One challenge being a Bella DT Member 
Helene's Challenge:  Pocket.  You can just barely tell above that I created a pocket on the boot to hold some stick pins I created.
Of course..the tag itself is a pocket...because my little Butterfly Fairy
comes out as well...and can be used as a separate ornie.  
Here you can see the fabulous stick pins I created.  One has the graphic fairy bumble bee on it (two bumble bee die cuts glued back to back with the stick pin between them).  The Fairy arms, head and legs all are from this month's new Gecko Galz Ephemera sets.  I created the bodice image myself :-)
Here is a peek at the back below
It is identical to the front, just pearls or pockets.  I did paint some leaves, and my name :-)
One more up close of the back.
I will add the date to the back and a little wire hanger on the Butterfly Fairy.  I hope Cassandra loves it...because I do!!  

In case you didn't notice, I created a new
using both Gecko Galz and Grapic Fairy images.
