Seize the Birthday - use Tags

It is time for a new challenge at Seize the Birthday and this time we have the "Toppings Option" of using tags, big or small, on your birthday project.

For my card I used the SU Tag Topper punch to make my tag and rounded the bottom corners with a punch.  I sponged the background with Bashful Blue ink and a scalloped circle punch. I diecut the grass with MFT Grassy Edges.  I stamped this cute pig from MFT Hog Heaven and colored him with promarkers.  I fussy cut him out and then added some Wink of Stella to the cupcake icing and cherry.  The image is mounted with foam tape and the tag is also mounted with foam tape.  I added some pink ribbon and tied it with twine.  The sentiment is from the same set and is on a banner cut with a die from MFT Blueprints 20.  The background diecut is with MFT Four Way Chevron Cover die in SU Soft Sky CS.  The sun ray DSP is from MME Adventure 6x6 pad.  The card base is Coredinations Premium Cardstock (110#) from JoAnn's.

Now check out all the cards by the designers over at Seize the Birthday and see the creative cards/tags they have made.  Hope you play along with us.

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a wonderful day.

Happy Stamping,
