Happy Birthday - OCCC

This morning I had a ton of creative ideas, but not a lot of time! Tia had her high school state gymnastics competition today so I only had a couple of hours to spare. We just got home an hour ago...Tia did a wonderful job at the meet! I'm so proud of her :O)

I decided to play along with Our Creative Corner Challenge (OCCC) for the first time. The challenge was to use a tag on our card. This is what I came up with. I needed a masculine birthday card so I finally cracked open the Lovely As A Tree set that I ordered over a month ago :O) I used the misting with markers technique and filled in the trunk of the tree with my Creamy Caramel marker. I cut the main image using my Nestabilities, covered the debossed edges with post its and sponged the background. For the tag, I used my large and small oval punches. I punched an additional large oval using Kraft cardstock to cover the reverse side of my DSP (that doesn't match :O).

This is a Stampin' Up! only card. Supplies are listed in my
SCS gallery. Hope you have a great weekend!

Wow, I love this. Of course, it's hard to go wrong with green. ;) The paper piercing on all the layers--even the tag--is a nice touch.
