You're Special - Tag Card

This is my first time to enter the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  This week's challenge is Cool Shades.  I only have sentiment stamps by Paper Smooches, so I printed the three flowers (which is a Free Digi stamp).  The Lattice background stamp is by Hero Arts/Studio Calico (which was a gift from my friend, Tina.  Thank you, Tina!).  I really enjoy making Tag Cards, and this one is 5 1/4" x 2 5/8".
I am also adding this to the following:  A Blog Named Hero-Challenge #12-Tag-You're It!, and
Simon Says...Emboss it!

This week we are inspired by this color story!

I Love You

I made this for the CAS-ual Fridays (CFC70) - using Black, White, and one other color.
I love making these mini 3" x 3" cards, and I love the color combination black, white, and red.
I'm also adding this to the Simon Says Stamp...Emboss It!, because embossing is my favorite technique.

Stamps:  (Hero Arts)-S5507-Envelope Pattern, CL582-Year Round Sentiments
Die:  Spellbinders-Long Scalloped Rectangles
Other:  Red Seam Binding, Clear Embossing Powder

Thank you for stopping by, and thank you for your sweet comments.

Thank You

I love the Papertrey Ink - Make It Monday #83 video by Melissa Phillips.  She came up with a clever idea - Card Aisle Inspiration.  Back when I used to buy cards, I enjoyed looking through all the cards, to find the perfect one.  I love Melissa's idea, so I had to play along.  Except that I searched the Hallmark online store for my inspiration.

I'm also adding this to the Simon Says Stamp...Emboss It!

Here is my card.

This card was my source of inspiration.

Stamps:  (PTI)-Stitches & Swirls, (Hero Arts)-CL582-Year Round Sentiments
Die:  (Spellbinders)-Reverse Wonky Rectangles
Ink:  VersaMark, Archival-Coffee

Thanks for stopping by.  Your visit and comments are greatly appreciated!

I Thought of You Today

While in Colorado, I found this fabulous Graphic 45 patterned paper and the lovely May Arts ribbon.
The top and the bottom of the tag are stamped with a woodgrain stamp.  The pocket is made to fit the tag.  (I love doing this with tags.)

I'm adding this to the Simon Says Stamp & Show - Read All About It - STAMPTEMBER.

Have a nice weekend!
