To keep all those special tags in

I have been very lucky and been given some beautiful tags by friends. Then what to do with them? My lovely friend, suggested an A5 folder with pcokets so I duly popped to Staples and purchsed one. It was a boring black so I decided to jazz it up a little..

I used canvas on the binding coloured with Tea dye distress ink and paper from a long ago bundle of papers from Costco. The paper had birds on it and was a bit staid so I stamped some Butterflies from my Darkroom door set and just lightly stamped again, re-inking every second stamp. The rosette was cut using the Tim Holtz die and I used the sketchbook tissue tape on the right side. It was all finished off with a creative expression stick pin and jewel in the middle. I was very pleased with the folder but I have noticed my sister eyeing it up, she doesn't craft but really appreciates all she receives so it may be going her way!
I'm entering this for the Craft room colour challenge using orange, brown or cream.
