WMSC#64-Eat Cake Tag

Today I made a tag for Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge #64 based on this sketch by Anya Shrier:   The element of this sketch that stands out to me the most is the "stamp here" directions.  In my mind, that calls for hand stamped background paper. 

Here is the tag I made:

The tag is actually summer sunrise, a beautiful hot orange color, but no amount of tweaking could bring out that orange in the picture.  I cut an extra large tag base and stamped the swag from the
Waltzingmouse Eat Cake stamp set in raspberry fizz ink.  I added some of the cute little flowers from Eat Cake to the swag and dotted them with a black ink pen to make them pop.  That color combinations is so cheerful and bright.

I used some A Muse pigment ink in Latte to stamp the cake image.  The little leaves are from Waltzingmouse Teeny Trees set.

One of the things I love about the Eat Cake set is there are so many different little images you can use for cake decorations, the options for just about any occasion are endless.  Of course I had to add a little bling to the birthday cake along with a sparkly little candle.  This is for my daughter, so she doesn't care how many candles are on her cake!  Yet.  The topper and scalloped edge of the tag is stamped with a pattern from
 It adds just a little more texture to the tag along with the black rick rac that is added to both the top and bottom.  The sentiment is an image from Teeny Trees and is clipped onto the tab with a rhinestone covered paper clip.  Did you notice that gorgeous wrinkled ribbon bow at the top?  Those rainbow striped colors could not match any better if I dyed it myself, but the ribbon was actually a gift from my sweet friend Joyce.  She got it in a fabulous store in New York City that has just about every kind of ribbon imaginable.  So, what do you think of my pink and orange little birthday tag?  Bright enough you?  You really should give Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenges a try, it's lots of fun and you can win a free stamp set just by participating!

That is the best tag I have ever seen! Pink and orange is one of my favorite color combinations ever (and our tennis uniform colors this season). You should be on the DT, all your cards have been selling me on this set, but I think this tag has put me over the edge. Love what you have done with the ribbon. I haven't used mine yet!
