Seize the Birthday!

Today we have a topping of "TAGS"!
We would love to see your "birthday card" with a tag on it...
or you can always just do "anything goes" kind of birthday card!
I hope you will join us over at
and check out all the sweet cards by the DT!
I kept mine pretty simple this time...
after taking two weeks of the online water color class it felt good
to go back to my roots and do a clean and simple kind of card!
Paper:  PTI white, pure poppy
stamps:  Embellished Elegance
dies:  PTI tag ##
stencil:  the Crafters workshop:  mini chicken wire
sequins:  doodlebug

  13. Hi Colleen,

    I loved everything about your card - you have a wonderful eye for detail and color. I also am inspired by the "debossed" technique you used on the card on your next post. I may try this, though I don't have dies, I am sure I could do it with another tool Thanks for sharing!



Thank you so much for taking the time to leave a makes my day!
