Floral Birthday Tag Card – Tag You’re It Challenge #25


tyic25 birthday

The latest Tag You’re It Challenge (#25) caught my eye.

Here is the inspiration tag:


I kept some of the elements (flower, edge stripes, greeting banner, ink blending), and added new elements (dry embossing, watercoloring). And mounted it onto a top fold card.

The white tag front and the green layer are both embossed with the same embossing folder. I watercolored along the embossing on the white tag with green ink to make it my flower stem.

Thanks for stopping by!
