Purple Card and Tag Set with Butterflies

Hi, Friends.....

Are my American friends all busy getting ready for Thanksgiving? I have my menu made and all the things listed out that I need to cook or prepare each day to get it all done by Thursday. We don't have a big extended family, so we invite a couple of neighbors over and celebrate the day. I'm the only lady, so after the meal I retreat to my craft room while the men talk guy stuff. :)

Today, I am sharing a quick and simple little tag/card duo that I made sometime back while playing around with some scraps. Just realized that it fits the color portion of Mrs. A's Butterfly Challenge this fortnight: Butterfly + the color Purple so I decided to enter it at the last minute. (The other and/or portion of her challenge is C is for Chevrons, but I don't have any of those in this project.)

I made this tag quite big so I can use it to decorate a larger-sized gift bag. 
Supplies used include:
Fiskars - XXXL Circle Punch (3" diameter)
Core'dinations Purple Cardstock
Scraps of cardstock from my stash
Butterfly sequins
Adhesive Rhinestones
Ribbon from my stash
Hope you enjoyed my little tag and card set. I am Guest Designing for Mrs. A tomorrow for her next Butterfly Challenge, so be sure to stop in. Have a lovely day!!
