Happy birthday tag

Hi everyone!!  I have a fun birthday tag to share today.  To give my tag some texture, I cut it in the tag shape (which measures 4 1/2" x 2 1/4") and then embossed it with my Dotted Flowers M-bossibilities folder.  I love the embossed pattern as a back drop for my blossom.  
Then I busted out my much neglected felt and alternated my layers with felt and pattern paper.  I get asked all the time if Spellbinders dies cut through felt and the answer is YES!  The dies are deeply etched and cuts felt beautifully!  The bloom is made with both the Blossom and Standard Circles dies.
 Here are some of the supplies I used on the tag.
Here is the Dotted Flowers folder.  I used Side A for my tag, but the great thing about these folders is they are double sided and you get 2 in 1!!!
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!  Here is a close up of the embossing detail.
