7th birthday, thank you set and a gift tag


This 7th birthday card was commissioned, I sent the client a link to this card and when I went to recreate it I ended up with the card above...  so much for CASEing myself.  I used the Embellish colors for their current challenge "use banners".  Paper Issues is having a number challenge and this cute card is perfect for that challenge.

I have to mail 7 of these little boxes to my nieces and nephews and I thought it would be fun to make tags with a photo on them (b/c I seriously have no time to do these sort of things!).  I used a Waltzingmouse Stamp on the back for their holiday tag challenge.  And since I've used a bit of twine I'm going to enter it in the Ribbon Carousel challenge.


And last but not least, I'm still trying to mass produce for Christmas gifts, so I've made another card set using the new Hero Arts newspaper tulip stamp.  Susan's One Layer Wednesday challenge this week is about something peaceful, and I love the idea of sitting in the grass looking at flowers....


Wishing you all a good day... back to my monster to do list over here....

The tags and both cards are wonderful! I love that tulip stamp and so far have resisted. Your simple treatment of it is weakening my resolve!
