Papertrey Ink Anniversary Challenge #2

I decided to check Nichole Heady's blog before I went to bed... and today's challenge literally got me too excited to sleep!  It is going on 3am and I want to keep crafting.  

Today's challenge is to make a card using one of the great free 4th Anniversary tags created by Papertrey's amazing design team!  I chose to use the tag designed by Dawn McVey.  I love love love her designs!  Here is her tag:

And here is my card:


I embossed the background with the Diamonds Sizzix Texturz plate and used a nail file to buff the raised parts to add more visual dimension.  The shapes around the tag I cut out on the Cricut.   The sentiment stamp is from PTI's Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers stamp set.  You can't tell from the photo but Dawn's circle is raised by foam dimensions and with the blue ring around it the tag really pops!  

You have until 7am tomorrow (2/7/11) to enter this challenge... and you can enter up to 9 times by using all 9 of the tags made by PTI's design team.  If I wasn't so tired I would keep making them tonight.  Maybe I'll be able to fit in another one or so later on in the day!

This is so stylish. Love the cheery colours you used and the background works perfectly with the tag.

Hi Lauren,
I love this card. The background is really good and I love the Cricut cuts. I too am trying to use my Cricut more for stamped cards. Good luck
