Can We Eat the Cake Now?

I am participating in my first Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge.  My dear friend Cathy from the Empty Nest Crafter has been encouraging me for a while.  She has even gone so far as to order stamps for me, and to send me a huge envelope full of her stamped images for me to use.  So, I am taking the plunge, and here it is--I made a tag for my daughter's upcoming 14th birthday.  I used images from Eat Cake for this tag.  I just love that sentiment, which sounds exactly like something my daughter would say.  

The paper is PTI Bitty Box.  The tag is cut with the PTI Tag Sale #4 die.  I topped the tag off with one of my homemade buttons made out of polymer clay.

Thanks for Visiting

  2. I am so happy! You played along with the sketch challenge and with such a cute tag too. I love how you used the Eat Cake set and I love how you used a circle of the same patterned paper for the sentiment. Your handmade button was a great embellishment for your tag. I forsee great projects coming from you using your Waltzingmouse stamps. You did a great job with the first one. I am going to cross my fingers and hope you are a great big winner on Saturday!
