Celebrating Friendship

My friend Gwen invited three of us to her lovely home for tea today. She asked if I could make a keepsake tag for each of us, as a remembrance of our day. So I decided to make a tussie mussie along with a tag.

Here is the tag..... a vintage postcard image, to which I added each of our names (in the corners by the pink rhinestones), along with the date and the words "Celebrating Friendship."

I knew I wanted to use the colors of pink and brown, as our friend Susan was going to be there, and she loves that combination.

I was pleased to find this brown and cream paper with words of friendship on it, for the outer cone.

I used a pink ribbon with raised flowers, and secured it to the cone sides by adding rose glass leaves.

Another glass leaf was added to the bottom, along with a cream tassel.

The finished product.

Gathered in a suitcase, ready for the tea party.
Thank you, Gwen, for a lovely day!
