June Snowman Tag


I thought butterflies would be great for June, but I had no clue how I was going to pull it together with the snowman focal point.  After searching and searching for inspiration online, I got it from my dear friend Dea.  Make the Snowman a Butterfly!  Woo hoo!!!  How fun is that??

For the snowman:
The snowman wings were digital stamped and colored with distress markers and glitter pens. The snowman shape was made in cricut craftroom by welding a cirlcle and stretched oval together, then cut on the cricut. The earmuffs are from CTMH All Decked Out set: fussy cut and fun flock added. purple rhinestones added for the buttons. (I love bling and sparkle) Ribbon from my stash.The month was attached with a purple bling from Recollections. The ribbon is crinkled paper ribbon.  
The top butterfly is laser cut wood with added black rhinestones.The bottom border was cut with a Martha Stewart punch. I applied with tombo glue and sprinkled MS glitter on top.It is so hard to decide which tag is my favorite, but this is one of the top-runners for sure.  Butterflies, purple, lots of bling!
