Best day ever

Hi everyone!  My boys went back to school today and I am still wondering WHERE summer went?  So while they were off at school, I sat down and made a card!  Yeah, there are some advantages to a quiet house.  lol!

My card uses the Celebra'tions stamp/die set called Fun Tags and one of the matching tag dies from the Build a Tag Two die set.  There are 2 sets in the Build a Tag series and I am SO stoked to finally have a tag die set!  They come with impression plate inserts making them super versatile.
I used some patterned paper from MME and strategically trimmed and placed the mustache pattern -heehee.  What I like about stamping on black cardstock and the chalkboard look is using my colored pencils to highlight the image.  How fun!  I used a pale mint green color and added some color to my tag image.  The little flower accent is from the Blooms Four die set.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

  4. Lovely card Michelle. I have to admit that I just cant get into the chalkboard thing, think its because I cringe at the sound of chalk on the chalkboard LOL.
