Tags and Colors for Friday Mashup

I'm late but I made it in with my card for this weeks Friday Mashup challenge!

Tara is our hostess this week and not only does she want us to include a tag on our project, she also wants us to use the following colors: Crisp Cantaloupe, Soft Sky, Primrose Petals and Bermuda Bay.

I'm not a big fan of tags and I don't have any of the tag dies so I chose to make a circle tag. It kind of looks like an ornament but hey, as long as I know its a tag that's all that matters right? LOL

In the recent SU order I got one of the sets I bought was 'For the Birds' and so I broke it out for this card. I kept the card pretty clean and simple, with just a heart in the corner of the tag and paper piercing in the corners. My use of Soft Sky was very subtle....I used it on the mailbox and also lightly sponged the edges of the circle with it.

I hope you'll head over to The Friday Mashup blog to check out what the rest of the design team came up with, and we'd love to have you play along with us!

    I confess I was a newbie to trying a "tag" on a card too - I think you did great. Love the little mailbox!

  4. Very sweet card Lisa! Your circle tag is a GREAT idea (I was struggling to think how I could use a tag too!) and the embossed stripes panel looks fab!
