Happy Bird-Day!

Hi everyone! Happy Monday!!

Here is my card for today's challenge on the There She Goes Blog, TSG32, which is to make a tag!!

I chose to make a tag along with a matching card! I never seem to have enough birthday cards in my stash, so I knew I wanted to make a birthday card and tag combo!!

I used TWO brand new sets from There She Goes for my card and tag combo, Birdie Wishes and Holiday Tags! As you can see, these sets are NOT just for the holidays!!!

I started by first stamping my bird and balloon images onto Choice Snow White Cardstock. I used Rich Razzleberry from SU!, and Memento Canteloupe, Memento Tangelo and Memento Cottage Ivy for the Balloons.

I cut out the little scenes with Circle Nestabilities, and while the cardstock was still in the nestie, I sponged around the edges, first with Soft Sky by SU! and then by Cool Caribbean by SU!

On my tag, I stamped the "To" and "From" from Holiday Tags in Rich Razzleberry from SU! and I layered it with a Rich Razzleberry cut with Blossom Nestablities.

For my card, I did the same sponging and layered the focal image with Blossom Nestabilities. The patterned paper is Razzleberry Lemonade from SU! and I added piercing all around the edge.

I added the sentiment. "Happy Birthday" from Holiday Tags onto my focal panel with Rich Razzleberry ink (I just curved the stamp to match the lines of my circle nestie before I stamped it). I added Taylor's Tiny Twinkles to the setiment and to the edges of my Cool Caribbean panel (which was run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots Embossing Folder).

I even finished off the inside of my card (shocker right?) with the "Wishing You A Very Happy Bird Day" sentiment from Birdie Wishes and I stamped it in Rich Razzleberry onto Choice Snow White Cardstock, cut it out with Circle Nestabilities, sponged it again and layered the panel with Rich Razzleberry Blossom Nestabilities.

We would love you to play along and make a tag (or a tag/card combo - smile!) of your own!!
