Our Creative Corner Challenge - Use a Tag

First I must confess that I am cheating just a wee bit on this challenge. I actually made this card some time ago. However, I have never posted it on my blog, it fits the challenge and it's one of my favorite cards. I do apologize for the photo. I am not a good picture-taker, which is why I usually scan my cards. I tried to use Photoshop to get rid of the glare above the card, but it just ended up looking worse, so I left it alone.
The main focal point is a stamped collage on an upside down shipping tag. Even though it's somewhat tedious - especially with this many different images - masking is one of my favorite techniques. It's not difficult at all - just a little time consuming. I love the results though.
Unfortunately, I don't remember who made all the stamps I used and I don't want to go dig them out. The ones I can remember are in the supplies list.
Stamps: Le London script background (Stampabilities); tulip and large butterfly (Hero Arts); small buttefly (Impression Obsession); fern leaf and face (not sure, but I think they are both Stampabilities)
Ink: Vintage Photo (Tim Holtz Distress Ink - Ranger)
Papers: Pink and brown cardstock (Hobby Lobby); DP - Bohemia (My Mind's Eye); shipping tag (Avery)
Embellishments: Flower (The Paper Studio); antique copper brad (Making Memories); organza ribbon scrap
