Tags over at A Spoonful of Sugar

(Please scroll down for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday post)

 Over at A Spoonfull of Sugar we are challenging you to use a tag somewhere on your creations!  For my card, I used a tag to highlight a birthday sentiment...


 
 



This is for my Grandma's upcoming 88th birthday in a couple of weeks.  I've been mulling over the style of her card because I doubt she'd like my usual clean-cut, bright, sassy ones!  I thought the Magnolia Doo Hicky die cuts (got mine from Bunny Zoe's Crafts large selection here)  would be ideal for a shabby chic style.  And not an image stamp in sight!  I can't tell you how uncomfortable I was making this card, but I think it turned out okay!

The other DT makes are so varied for this challenge, it's amazing how we came up with such different ideas!  You can see all of the makes here

That's it from me today - enjoy your day!


I am entering this card into All That Scraps monthly Magnolia challenge for "Let's celebrate birthdays", Bunny Zoe's Crafts monthly challenge of "flowers everywhere" and Flutter By Wednesday for anything goes.




Paper/cardstock: Bazzill Bling brown cardstock, Doodlebug Lilywhite cardstock, BasicGrey Infuse paper pad
Stamps: Hero Arts sentiment, CC Designs sentiment inside card
Mediums: ColorBox chalk inks
Accents: lace and pearl brads from stash
Tools: Magnolia Doo Hickey dies, Nestabilities circle and rectangle dies (inside card)

Really nice card, Mary. I was taken aback by it, as I was expecting your trademark clean lines ;) But it really worked out well, great card :)
