Challenge Entry: Altered Tag

I started on a new job at the start of the year after being on a 1.5 year extended vacation.  So for ladies this justifies a shopping spree for new work clothes, right? And yes, that was what I did! :)

So, I have this stash of tags from the new blouses I purchased. Now, what to do with them? Altered art! :)

BEFORE (front and back of the tag)



AFTER


I know you're loving the fabric flower, right?  I wish I made it, but no... It's from Precocious Paper!  Pop over to the Etsy store, Tessa has tons of pretty blossoms to offer you! :)
