Birthday Greetings

At Creative Inspirations Paint, the challenge this week is "Tags".  You don't have to use CIP paints to play, but if you have 'em, we'd love to see them!  If you use them, list the colors and your name will go into the drawing twice.  For all the challenge details, please visit their website link mentioned above.

I am so excited to show you my card.  :-)

I took a regular, oval manila tag that looks like this:

I brushed Mocha Latte on one side.  These paints dry very quickly, which is nice.  Taking a tiny bit of paper towel, I dipped my towel in the lid of Chocolate and dabbed it on the tag.  I did the same with Carmel, too, to soften the deep brown.  I stamped a greeting on it, then tied on a ribbon.

The nice folks at Sweet Stamps let our design team pick out a few stamps, and I used two of them on this card (click on the image to see it in the store):

I used the front cover of a Webster's Pages 6 x 6 paper pad as my card front.  I saw this oval, and knew exactly where I'd place my tag.

I love how the Creative Inspirations Paints turned my plain-vanilla manila into shabby-chic spectacular!

Thanks so much for joining me today!
