TIO #40 - Surprise Me - What's on Your desk?

Hi. Another limited week for me, with problems with my back caused by my knee!!! Still, the operation is 4 weeks on Friday, so I just have to get on with it!!! Managing bits of gardening, planting out pretty flowers, so that's nice!! Fred has done most work there though, shifting pots and cleaning up, so the garden looks good for the handfasting. That is now only 3 weeks away on Saturday!!! OOOwww scary!!

This is my piece for TIO #40!! Can you believe it is the 40th?? It is also the last chance to enter for the blogaversary candy shown above. Hope you will be able to dream with me... The task was to dream up a creation using what was on the desk!! Well, I have far too much junk on mine, but not all of it suited to making a presentable tag!!! Tee hee ... So I chose a scrap of shiny card I had printed on with a large image of a carte postale, and stamped a foamy stamp swirl from top and bottom, in victorian velvet (a beautiful dusky pink) distress ink. The flower is also a foamy, stamped twice in black and embossed with clear melt dust - I am totally addicted to this stuff now, it is so fine for the type of layering work I like to do... The butterfly is stamped on a piece of pinky coloured, figured paper and the ribbon is a scrap of white, coloured with the victorian velvet ink.
Thanks for looking

Hi Frankie. I'm so sorry, it's been ages since I've stopped by, far too long looking at your gorgeous tags.
I love the ticket to ride and this one is stunning. The colours are gorgeous and those swirls, well they are my favourite. I use them all the time and I can see they are becoming yours.
So sorry to hear you are still having problems but your celebration is something lovely to look forward too. I hope the sun shines for your special day.
I shall try and get a tag done for your challenge this week, I have been missing it, just not enough hours in the day.
Take care
