MC Jan/13 - TH Tag Jan - HB

Finally got around to doing the first tag of the year for Tim's 12 tags of 2013... And got my first male birthday card done to boot, Yahoo... and thanks to an online friend who gave me the inspiration to using a tag on an easel card. I usually don't like making tags because they've always seemed useless to me - what do I do with them... just sticking it on a card didn't do it for me. But now... I think I'll be making more tags. BIG GRIN

There are lots of details and descriptions and other views of this card on my website. Click card image and enjoy.

I'm using a Quietfire Design Happy Birthday stamp.

And it fits for these challenges:
Tim Holtz  12 tags for 2013 Jan
Incy Wincy Designs  #179 Bingo: Alter it, 3DP, emboss; punch/die, metal, no card; distress, pearls/bling, tag
Totally Stampalicious  favorite trio of colors (brown, blue & orangy/rust)
Digi Stamps 4 Joy  #58 How time flies
A Lotta a Rubber  #99 Make your own DP
Moving Along with the Times  Birthday
Crafts 4 Eternity  #107 punch it (several circle & hole punches)
The Old Back Porch  #55 card a week
Simply Create Too  #29 Anything goes
Totally Papercrafts  #150 emboss
Wags n Whiskers  #95 celebration (beside it being a HB card, I'm celebrating because I got a male card done...)
