CCEE126 - Tags

Kathy's last challenge for June is to make a tag or a card with a tag.  In this month's Technique Junkie Newsletter is a technique called the Tag Fence Technique, and I thought it would be perfect for Kathy's challenge.  I made the tags out of tan-colored cardstock, embossed with a woodgrain embossing folder.  I added a few branches behind my "fence" and some punched flowers, and I was pretty much done.



The happy birthday sentiment is from a new Mark's Finest Papers set called Silly Shells.  My card obviously has no shells, but the sentiment works!

If you'd like to play along with the CCEE stampers, we'd love to have you join us.  Here's a link to our blog.

Oh wow, Lois!!! You rocked this, how creative. And I even have some small manilla tags. I've often wondered about subscribing to Technique Junkies, since there is no doubt I am one. I must look at my budget after seeing this fabulous card!!
