Orchid and fabric tag

 
This is a picture of a fabric tag that I did for Jon in my online art group, AAWA (An Affair With Art). I think it turned out really pretty and perfect for Valentines Day. The lace is antique tatting that was on an antique handkerchief. The white pocket is also part of the handkerchief. The beads and antique lace are hand sewn onto the tag.
 
Below the tag is the orchid today. There is only one more bloom on the main stem, 2 on the stem out of the main stem and 4 more to go on the other stem.
