A Tag for a Birthday

Today I have a tag to share that I made using several dies.
The tag itself is Stitched Tag from Waltzingmouse.  I used Coredinations Snowcap paper for everything on my tag - it is a textured paper if you look closely.  The Gerbera Daisy die is from MFT and the HAPPY die is from PTI.  I sponged the flower petals with Antique Linen Distress Ink and sponged the flower centers with Ripe Persimmon, Squeezed Lemonade and Salty Ocean Distress inks.  I layered the centers onto the blooms with foam dots and then adhered them to the card - with the blue center flower raised up on a foam dot.  I inked the HAPPY with Salty Ocean and Ripe Persimmon and layered that onto the tag with thin pieces of foam dots.  To finish off the tag - I stamped Birthday -  a partial inking of the Happy Birthday sentiment in Party Animal by Avery Elle - and stapled on the twill ribbon from PTI.

I'm entering my tag in a new challenge I just found -  Tag - You're It!
I'm also entering this in the Moxie Fab Wonderful Word dies Challenge

Then I decided to adhere my tag to a card base - first layering it onto an orange panel die cut with a Stitched Mat Rectangle die from Lil' Inker Designs.
Here's a close up shot of the pretty Gerbera Daisies - I curved the petals up using my bone folder and added black enamel dots from My Mind's Eye to the centers.
I'm entering my card in Virginia's View Challenge #5 - use Die Cuts.
I hope everyone in the US had a lovely 4th of July long weekend -  we had rain from Hurricane Arthur all day Friday - but Saturday and Sunday were glorious summer days -  we were at a wedding on Saturday held at a conference center in the woods in RI.  Here are two pics of the bride and groom.  It couldn't have been a more perfect day -  Wishing you the best in your new life together Mary and Darren!
