Tag......You're It!

Happy Wednesday Peeps!

Donna here hosting the Mod Squad Challenge this week.  So happy to be here, thank you Cat, Laurie, Lee, and Sean.

Today's Challenge is all about tags.  Just add a tag to your card or project.  I love a tag on a card.  A little tag, a large tag, it doesn't matter, they just make me happy!  :)

Beaded Cupcake Tag

I have used the sentiment from Simple Numbers, by Gina K Designs.  I cut a large tag out using my Cameo and covered it in Bo Bunny Designer Paper, added a couple of eyelets and that pretty pink and white gingham ribbon.  Fussy cutting a cupcake 'tin' shape out of chipboard topped with more DP, I ran it through my corrugator.  Now for the fun part.  Using a piece of scrap chipboard I started gluing down random craft beads, in pinks and white.  Once I got the 'frosting' shape I was looking for I covered the beads in glitter to add a little sparkle and shine, and then topped my cupcake 'tin' with this delicious confection.  When dried I adhered it to my tag, tied some Baker's Twine on, then using Scor Tape I placed the entire tag on my card front.  I also colored some adhesive pearls with Copic Markers.  Stamped my sentiment on a piece of Pure Luxury card stock, cut as a banner flag.  Card base is Pure Luxury Dark Chocolate.  Whala.  A yummy little birthday card. 

Now as a PRIZE for entering my Challenge, I have 3......three......yes, I said THREE packs of fantastic Gina K Designs Designer Papers, Berries & Vines, Spring Parade, and Wisteria Lane

One LUCKY winner will receive ALL three!
