A Birthday card with Double Tag and a Hello Bird Card

As I see the challenge at Tag You´re It....I think I must join it...I love Anja Card with double Tag so cute and so sweet...

I did choose this my so old stamp set that I ever bought at year 2009 from Inkandinkado...and stamped and embossed it with white embossing powder...after that I sponged it with light green color.

I choose the cute Image from Mama elephant and try to mimic the Double Tag from the Challenge Blog. The background Tag I sponged with 3 different distress ink, dark purple, yellow and light purple. The image I colored with copics marker. I dont have tiny Birthday sentiment also it is my handwriting..please dont laugh its not so good but at least you can read this :)

My card will be send to my lovely blogland friend named Shawna...she loves anything with circle as I read on her blog...hope she will like this card...

Challenges for my tag card are:

Tag You´re It #27

Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge: Anything Goes (2)

4 Crafty Chicks #257: Anything Goes (2/3)

Crafty Gals Corner #30: Anything Goes (2/2)

Seize The Birthday : Embossing 



I also made this card with a stencil from Stamplorations named Some Birds, I sponged white ink on the stencil and gave white embossing powder on it then heated it. Took the stencil then I sponged the 2 different blue colors and one orange color

My idea is this bird standing on the branch at the sun set time also the background color is a sunset color :). The sentiment is from Paper Smooches. The Embossed folder is from Taylored Expressions named Dotted Lattice.

Challenges for my second card are:

CASology week #157 : WINGS

Crafts 4 Eternity #237: Anything Goes (2/3)

Simply PaperCraft #10: Anything Goes (2/3)
