Fancy Envelope Tag

As I wasn't well yesterday and needed a quick piece to share this morning, I decided to work on a tag and use a piece of a ready decorated envelope as the background.
I received some amazing mop up pieces and happy mail from Liz Berlinger all the way from Canada.  When they arrived, even the envelope had been decorated and I kept it to cut up and use as backgrounds.  It was just right for the quick project that I needed to complete this morning for immediate sharing on my blog.  I added a section to a #8 manilla tag, sealed it with distress collage medium, dried and trimmed.
As the background itself was already perfect, I took colours and themes that had been used on it already and created a flag topper using the three largest Stitched Flag dies by Sue Wilson in black, rose gold and white.  I used all the teeny weenie bird stamps that I could find from various Claritystamp sets (Grove Trees Outline set, Stag Outline Set, Bird Outline set, Candle Outline set and Toadstool Outline set) and stamped them onto the white tag using Onyx Black Versafine ink, then went over with some Antique Linen Distress Oxide to better match the background of the tag.
This was added to the tag and the top trimmed level.
The final touch was to add a couple of the Small Talk stickers by Tim Holtz idea-ology.
