My last entry for the PTI Anniversary Tags Challenge!

Good Morning!

It's a miserable day here in the North East of the UK, so I thought I'd brighten it up a little with another 4x4 card and tag for the Anniversary Tags challenge at Papertrey. 

This is my last entry for the challenge, as I must get on with some uni work today! 

For this little card I chose to use Ali Miles' tag. It's a beautiful flower image with a whimsical cutesy feel to it. I love the circle frame round it.

I have to say I am not one for using digital images in my card making. I tried it a while back when Hero Arts introduced their digital images but I couldn't get them to suit my style. I guess I didn't try hard enough, as I really enjoyed using these tag images and I can see me using them again. 

I think one of the reasons I have enjoyed using them so much yesterday is that they co-ordinate so nicely with the other PTI products like the dies they have! 

For the card I punched out the tag twice and coloured it with my Copic Markers. With the second tag I just coloured and cut out the flower and adhered it to the first tag with foam pads to give it some dimension. I then cut out a Limitless Layer with Raspberry Fizz CS and used the circle layer to cut out the middle of the frame. I then covered the frame with Star Dust Stickles!

You can just make out that the pink limitless layer is layered onto a white layer. The tag image is adhered to the centre of the layers and then layered onto a Mat Stack 1 frame, the middle of which is cut out using Fillable Frames die no.10 

A piece of RF twill and the Celebrate sentiment finishes off the card nicely.

For the tag I used Tag Sale no.1 die and Hawaiian Shores CS. The flower layer is made exactly the same as the card. I stamped the sentiment and this time used a SU! label punch and added some metallic nail accents.

I wish I had time to make a few more cards and tags using the Anniversary Tags download from PTI but they will have to wait for another day! The festivities continue today over on Nichole's Blog,so be sure to check them out! Another FAB prize is up for grabs along with a NEW feature and a challenge! 

I'd best be off and do some uni work so I can work on the challenge later!

Thanks for stopping by!

Bev, I love how you colored your flower. I had to come see yours cuz I really love your coloring job better than mine. After seeing yours, I realize why mine isn't as cute as yours. I shouldn't have shaded the small petals too. Doing so made my small petals just get lost with the big petals.
Good luck on the contest! I hope one of us wins! :)

Wow! You've really "gone to town" with the PTI challenges. I think this is my favorite--love the color combination. I've had the same feelings you have about digital stamps and digital card making, but I know I'll use these tags again, too.
