PTI anniversary challenges

Papertrey Ink is hosting a number of challenges this week to celebrate their 8th anniversary. Day 3 challenge was to create a tag with/for a matching gift bag.

Here's a close-up of the tag:

I wasn't actually planning to play along with this one, but I had this gift for a sweet friend who was celebrating her birthday this week and I just happened to have the perfect (recycled) gift bag to put it in. That's when I decided I should make a matching gift tag and play along with the PTI challenge.
Since the bag was all white and sliver, I decided I could also play along with the PTI Heavy metal challeng for day 7.

I used Ranger's Liquid platinum embossing powder to heat emboss the pretty background image (PTI, Crackled mini stamp set) and then die cut the tag before heat embossing the sentiment (PTI, SAF 2014 kit). I also heat embossed an extra strip of cardstock and used that to die cut the flower and two leaves (PTI, SAF 2014 kit). To add yet a little more sparkle, I added a few silver sequins (Pretty Pink Posh) and attached the tag to the bag using a piece of recycled ribbon and some white twine.
