Cut 4¾"x6¼" Color Me™ corner clock paper, place on the craft sheet, and rub the dark brown chalk ink pad over it until completely covered. Wipe off the excess. Cut out the Color Me™ flower tag and a flower stripe from the Color Me™ stripes paper. Ink both with toffee and let dry completely.

Glue a length of ⅛" wide gold ribbon near each stripe as shown, wrapping the ends to the back and gluing in place. Glue the paper centered on the card. Punch out the doily papier tole pieces. Stamp “count your life…” on piece #1 with timber brown, then assemble the layers with foam tape as instructed on the package. Glue to the card, ¾" from the top.
- Stamp “count your friends…” on the tag with timber brown, then mat on cardstock with 1/16" borders. Glue the tag and place Dazzles™ as shown. Knot a 3" gold ribbon and glue to the lock. Knot 4" of ¾" wide rust crepe ribbon and glue to the tag. Foam tape an extra butterfly as shown.
- For the inside: Cut 4½"x5½" Color Me™ swirls paper and ink dark brown. Cut a narrow dot stripe from the Color Me™ stripes paper and ink toffee. When dry, glue the pieces as shown.
