I'm just doing a little last minute laundry before Struan heads back to Scotland tonight.  While I'm waiting on the pre-wash, here's a birthday tag that I did a couple of weeks ago, when I was on my Gelato's roll!

I applied pink Gelatos to a piece of cream card, then put a piece of netting over that and ran a white Gelato over the piece - giving me the mottled look.  Then I ran the piece through the Cuttlebug "You" embossing folder, applied Memento Lilac Posies directly to the raised pattern. Cut in the shape of a tag.

Sparkle N Sprinkle has some new marbled embossing powders out, and "Mesmerized" is my favorite. That was what was used for the flower.  Run the Lilac Posies directly over the flower too and then apply Versamark and heat emboss with Clear Detail. 

The happy birthday was taken from an embossing folder. I added a couple of Dylusions-sprayed flourishes, pom-pom ribbon, a heart brad heat embossed with Bahama Mama (another of the Marbled embossing powders) and some glitter and my tag was complete.  For step by step instructions please click here.

OK, on with the laundry!

Stop by in a few days, where we'll be releasing the newest Sparkle N Sprinkle Set.  It's going to be a "hoot"!
