TAG - you're it! : )

It is time for another great challenge at Seize the Birthday!

    Our "Toppings" option this time is...



Tags - Little or BIG!

This birthday party has a Surprise Guest!! - the sweet  Monika Reeck of "Creative with Monika blog" joins us at  Seize the Birthday for the next two months.  Please join me in a great big WELCOME!!



My card today was a lot of fun to create!  I started out by cutting a tag from Pretty Pink Posh - that I purchased from Serendipity Stamps (a little promo here : ) did you know Serendipity Stamps now offers PPP product!? check it out HERE) Next I inked some Polka dots on the right side only of the tag using a Penny Black stencil. I stamped the legs of my Flamingo as well as the sentiment directly on to the tag.  Next I cut some sweet Garland from water color paper and colored them with my Ziggys.  Finally I cut and stamped the bird. I glued all the the elements to the card face - not popping up anything except the bird's wing. I wanted to doll up the inside so I applied the same polka dotted stencil to the lower section of the inside and lastly I laid down a strip of thin black Washi tape : )

TAG - you're it!! now it is your turn to create a card using a Tag - Little or BIG!


If you are not a "Toppings"  person don't forget at Seize The Birthday - Anything Always Goes!!

Love x Love your fabulous flamingo; definitely one of my favourite bird stamps and, given I have bird terror (seriously...they scare me! And the ravens here: hippo-sized! I give them plenty of respect and wide berth), that speaks volumes! The tag and garland: simply splendid! Someone will be mega-watt smiling when this classy little number finds its way into their mailbox!
