Pretty Little Ribbon Shop - July Challenge

Good Monday morning dear friends.  Wherever you are, I hope today is a good day.
I cannot believe that it's July already...please let there be blue skies! We haven't seen many here in West Yorkshire this summer.
Today is also the start of a new monthly challenge at the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop Blog. The lovely Peet has chosen this months theme, which is 'Tags'. Peet has asked us to create a tag, or use a tag on your card, or any project.
Here are my offerings...
For my tag I used DP's from First Edition - Boho Chic paper pad. My rose was cut with the Sizzix -Tattered Florals die.
For the top of my tag I used some beautiful green 15mm organza ribbon, a green leaf pin and some orange divine bakers twine. All  from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.  
My sentiment is by Anna Griffin, stamped onto a Spellbinders Labels Twenty-Two die cut.
I box pleated some of the paper and added a coordinating band.

I also have a bottle tag to share...
I cut my tag on Cameo using a medium weight cream card stock.  I then cut a smaller shape and embossed that using Spellbinders M-Bossabilities 'So Trendy' folder.
I cut a Spellbinders frame from some Boho Chic paper, then stamped 'Let's Party' with an Anna Griffin stamp and overlaid that onto the frame.
To complete I made a pompom flower and prettied it up with some glitter glue.  I attached this to a double bow created with some beautiful pearl 15mm sheer elegance ribbon and a pearl decorative pin from the Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
Please stop by the blog and see the beautiful creations by my team mates. Then, why not join in and create something with a tag? Sarah will have something pretty again for the prize this month.

I would like to enter my tags into the following challenge...

Thank you for stopping by xx

I would never have thought to use the tattered florals die like that!! what a great rose. I would love a bottle of wine with such a gorgeous tag hanging from it...so much nicer than those shiny bags :0)

My goodness you must be in high demand for parties Sasha - your wine tag raises the bottle to something very special indeed! I love the neutral colours and the astonishing pom pom flower on that but it's the other one that really made me gasp. I adore the colours you've used and the box pleats are such a pretty touch. What a pretty flower on this tag too. Happy partying! Vicky x
