Purple and Lilac Bird Tags

I bought these tag stamps a while ago because I just had to have them - and I think this is only the third time I've used them!! Shame on me!!

I decided to go with a monochrome look for this card and so the three bird tags from the Invoke Arts Nature Tags stamp set were stamped using Tim Holtz Dusty Concord and Milled Lavender distress inks. The tags were then matted onto lilac and purple card and then onto Craft Planet Silver Satin card. The holes were punched at the top of the tags and white organza ribbon was threaded through.

A panel of lilac patterned paper from a docrafts goody bag was matted onto the silver satin card and then the card blank. A length of wider white organza ribbon was wrapped around a strip of purple card and matted onto the Silver Satin card.

Narrow white organza ribbon was tied through a purple button and adhered to a paper flower coloured using the Dusty Concord ink.

The circle sentiment, from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set, was stamped onto white card using Versafine Imperial Purple archival pigment ink and matted onto the lilac and silver card, all die cut using the circle Nestabilities dies.

The inside of the card was also decorated using a strip of the lilac patterned paper matted onto a strip of the Silver Satin card. The sentiment was added using a stamp from the HOTP Sentiments stamp set and the Imperial Purple ink.

I am entering this card into a few challenges:
ETA: This card won Top 3 at the Incy Wincy Challenge
