It's time to Celebrate the Occasion!! Challenge #6!!

The task put before us (and all of you!!) this week at the wonderful challenge blog, Celebrate the Occasion, is: a thank you card, but it must have a tag. I ran so many ideas thru my head, and finally came up with this as my DT entry. It is my first try at an easel card, and I think I'll be making more of these! I like how it turned out!!

Without further ado.....


And here's a view at an angle, so you can actually see the easel card:

Recipe:
Cricut Cartridge: Preserves
Cardstock: Stampin' Up!
Cuttlebug Embossing Folder: Tiny Mosaic
Ribbon from my stash: Found it in a dollar bin at JoAnn's
Rhinestones: Queen & Co.
Sakura Glaze Embossing Pen
Sakura White Gelly Roll Pen
Pop Dots



Now, get moving on your own Thank You card, and head on over to Celebrate the Occasion. You can link up your project there, and the weekly winner gets a chance at being selected for the monthly prize....which for March is the ROCK PRINCESS cartridge!! It can't get better than that! You have until Sunday, March 27th at 11:59pm (EST) to link up!! Good luck!!
