Tag Birthday Card

This one came out so pretty, but the colors don't show up true in the photos even though I made myself a same "photo box" out of cardstock.  The photo or light box does help a lot with shadows and brighting things up.
This card was created following a sketch this week on the Cricut message board, I love the inspiration sketches give me, in fact I find it hard to make a card without one.
The background paper is from a K & Company stack and I just happen to have a pad of K & Company tags that matches the paper.  The border across the bottom I made using the Art Philosophy cartridge from CTMH using Cricut Craft Room I welded a couple of the borders together then copy,paste and flip to make it a double sided border, then I created a shadow to go behind it.
Using the tag and papers made this card pretty quick and simple to make.  I added a lace like bow I had to the top of the tag and a string of pearls across the bottom.
I used a border Cuttlebug folder on the border then stamped happy birthday with a Gina K stamp.
Well thank you for finding your way to my blog, would love to hear your comments

This is lovely! What a pretty tag. The embossed border looks lovely and it looks wonderful the way the sentiment is incorporated.
