Reverse Confetti Summer Fun Blog Hop


I'm thrilled to be joining along in the Summer Fun blog hop with Reverse Confetti.  Summer is my most favorite season of all.  For the hop I made a birthday tag.


I couldn't pass up using the Fabulous Flamingos stamp set for Summer fun!  They are one of my all time favorite animals.   Here I was going for a silhouette on the water at sunrise (or sunset).  What do you think, did I achieve that?

To make my tag, I die cut the largest of the tags from the Tag Me die set, once from white and another time from black card stock.  Then I sponged the background with Distress Inks and did my stamping.  I layered the tags, slightly offset and embellished the tag with sequins.  Now I have a tag ready to add to a gift bag or package!

Time to hop along now.  Make sure you visit all of the blog, leaving comments along the way.  There is a $15 gift certificate up for grabs!!!!
