The pen nib was stamped separately on kraft cardstock, fussycut and popped up on dimensional adhesive.

Sending Smiles

I was at a weekend crop in June and one of the challenges was to do a tag using items in our goodie bag.  I covered the tag with some of the patterned paper and used the turquoise ribbon and black/white baker's twine.  I tore the paper into strips and inked the edges to mimic water. 

Oh....and FYI, my tag won the challenge. (grin)

I made the tag into a card and the inside sentiment reads "Have a JAW-some birthday"
