God of Love

I was going through my stash and found some fun stuff I received as a gift a while ago from my niece. She bought me a pack of packaging tags and some silver metal "Love" embelishments. I forgot I had them. So I challenged myself to use them. After browsing the Dirty Gallery this morning, I was totally inspired and this is what I made:

I really like the Wild Saffron DP from K & Company. It is absolutely gorgeous. I covered the tag with a piece from that collection. I used Close to Cocoa & River Rock with the paper and it matches nicely. That pretty pearl brad is also from K & Company. I picked up a pack of them at Ollie's Bargain Outlet last weekend. I paid $1.29. Wow, very cheap. I added some ribbon, linen thread and primas. I used the Fiskars Threading Water Border Punch. The stamped sentiment is from God's Blessings (Stampin' Up!).

I also embellished the inside. I have noticed some stampers finish the insides and I really like the look. So now I am doing that as well.
