29 Again????


It is challenge time again over at CCC Digi Creations, and the theme this time is Tag It, (Challenge #34)
Our sponsor is Stitchy Bear,  

I used the image "Birthday Girl" on a tag shaped card, and also added a small tag as well, behind the main image.

The Birthday Girl has her violet rinse all freshened up, has put on her birthday shirt and shiny shoes and ear rings, and is already to roll with her (shiny) balloons in hand.

The image was cut with a regular oval, and mounted off centre over the purple scalloped one,  then layered over a scrap of butterfly embossed ivory card, a sparkling silver strip attached top and bottom to that, and some (stickled)  butterflies were added

This sentiment was hand written with an embossing pen, and embossed using silver ep.

The 'serious' sentiment was also silver embossed onto the final scrap of ivory and mounted on a purple tag I made, and tucked behind the image panels.
I am sending this to a friend who will think it is hilarious.

I am linking this to:
(I used Spellbinder Std Ovals and Scalloped Oval)

Thank you for visiting my blog - may your day be blessed
Any comments you may leave are deeply appreciated.

What a funny Birthday card. Great job! We are blessed that you joined our Challenge this week at Word Art Wednesday. I want to leave you with the Word of God in Psalm 12:1-2 which says, "I lift up my eyes to the hills—where does my help come from? My help comes from the LORD, the Maker of heaven and earth." Hugs always...

This is just so cute, and I'm loving that hair. Where we are in South Florida, we see a lot of the 'blue hair' folks! Love the lavender scallops on the matting, and the sentiment is just perfectly a hoot! Well done. Your recipient will get a big kick out of this one. TFS & have a good wkend. Hugs

Very fun!! Wouldn't we all like to be 29 again (well, actually, I'd like to be 17 again) and this lovely lady looks ready to party! I really like the pull out sentiment tag. Thanks for playing with The House That Stamps Built. Sorry it's taken me so long to comment; life has been crazy this week.
