This is the first time i have ever entered the gingersnaps challenge so i do hope i have done everything correctly.
This is my entry into  the BLUE MOON CHALLENGE 
I created my own shimmer spray using cosmic shimmer mica powder and watercolor paints.
I then stamped and clear embossed my tag with an Inkadinkado flower stamp and spritzed the watercolour shimmer spray all over my tag..set it with the heat gun and spritzed 2 more layers for depth.
I then stamped the same image again on ivory cardstock cut it out and clear embossed it for extra shine and added this on top with foam pads for dimension.
I stamped thank you added some flowers and flower gems and a butterfly.
I distressed and inked the edges of the tag and then added faux stitching in black pen.
