Birthday Card ~ A Little Plaid (post #1)

I really liked the look of this stamp when I used it before here directly on design paper then colored it up so I thought I would use it again with this paper.
Next I used this design paper to make some other projects to share later and this little piece of scrap was just calling out to be used.
I found a couple of Copics that closely matched the plaid design to color it up.
The mint green paper is the same as I used in my future post projects but the card needed a little more so I found this tan that matched in my stash.
I embossed the background piece for texture and dimension.
Then I used the little scrap oval {also from the other projects. tee hee hee} to create the tag.
To finish things off I added this cute little sentiment and tied it on with a ribbon bow.

*Card base 5.5 x 4.25 in.
*Card front embossed using the Cuttlebug Wicker Weave folder.
*Flowers from the With Gratitude stamp set from Flourishes.
*Sentiment from the Small Phrases from Verve Stamps.
*Tag oval cut using Spellbinders Media Mixage Ovals One.
*Design paper scraps originally from a My Minds Eye paper pad.
*Copic markers #Y28 & G21.
*Memento Tuxedo Black stamps pad.
*Ribbon from Offray (Michaels)

May your day always be filled with love.
