CRAFTy Thursday

At CRAFT this week Challenge 100 is to create a project using ribbon, a tag, two squares and a circle. Here's my card:

My recipe: 
1> Print a digital image from our sponsor, Lia Stampz onto cream cardstock.
2> Use Spellbinders Nestabilities 'Labels Four' die to cut a tag around the image.
3> Ink the edges with fluid chalk and add some gingham ribbon to the top.
4> Cut two squares - Kraft (4"x4") and Cloud 9 patterned paper (3"x3"), and machine stitch around each.
5> Layer the squares and the tags, then slip a circle (reverse side of a Jillibean Soup journalling spot) under the edge of the tag on one side. 
6> Embellish the circle with some Prima mini roses and handmade rolled roses.
7> Add a short sentiment with Adorn It alphabet stickers.
8> Mount the layers onto a 5"x5" folded card

The recipe had me daunted at first, but when I started to play around I really had fun with it. I'm also entering my card in the following challenges:
