Happy {Birth} Day

I wanted to join in the current Basic Grey challenge which is to use a Basic Grey product (I used 3 papers from the Picadilly line) and make a tag.  I also needed a birthday card.  So, I combined the two and came up with this:

I used a Labels 22 die in my Cuttlebug to make the top of the tag. I threaded the end of the tag thru the die so it only cut the top portion. I then made a rectangular card and attached the tag to the front of it.  I stamped the Happy Birthday sentiment  and double matted it with spellbinders dies. A white pen was used for some faux stitching on the floral paper.  I used a couple more die cuts in the corners and LOTS of bling for sparkle.  Some twine finishes it off.

I used pop dots between some of the layers for added dimension.

Cardstock:  Georgia Pacific
Patterned Paper:  Basic Grey (Picadilly)
Ink:  Colorbox Pigment (Black)
Stamp:  Impression Obsession
Tools/Embellishments:  twine (The Twinery), rhinestones (Best Occasions), Uni-ball White Pen, Spellbinders (Circles Large & Small, Lacey Circles, Lattice Accents, Labels 22)

I'm entering this in the following challenges:
Basic Grey Challenge #99 - Make a tag
Papertake Weekly - Anything Goes
Scrap Creations - Anything Goes
Cuttlebug Mania - Anything Girlie
Paper Pretties Wednesday Challenge (PWC270) - Use 2 or more patterned papers (I used 3)

Thanks for stopping by again today.
