All the stamps are by Tim Holtz. I used his tag die and small baroque die to cut the shapes from Deena's Penny Lane "Free Bird Leaves of Love" by My Minds eye. This green paper is already printed with leaves and brown weeds, sort of like the background of Brenda's blog header. I cut the baroque layer from the reverse side of this paper on which I embossed the imagination verse, more weeds stamped in Walnut Stain and Crushed Olive DI, with Crushed Olive and Vintage Photo sponged on the edge. The butterflies are in Barn Door.
I used Tim's Tattered Flower die to cut the "poppy" from verse printed paper, then I dabbed Barn Door distress stain over the surface and spritzed with Biscotti Perfect Pearls. A black button and some gold stickles makes the centre of the flower.
The butterfly is a Memory Box die cut from a scrap of yellow printed paper on which I sponged Barn Door and Walnut Stain.
The brown detailed corner is a Sizzix die "Architectural Accents". A bit of green ruffled ribbon at the bottom and crushed silk ribbon at the top completes the tag.

I am pleased with this tag and think it better reflects the colours and theme of Brenda's blog header!
