The Kraft Journal... Birthday Girl

Hi Everyone!  Happy Monday!

I want to share very quickly a card for this week's The Kraft Journal Challenge.  We were asked to use the color green.

My card:

I started out with Kraft card base, followed with patterned paper from SU! Print Poetry.  I dusted off my Copic markers and colored a digi stamp from La-La Land Stamps.  These images are so much fun to color!  I then adhered the image onto a tag that was lying around my craft table.  The circle was die-cut with the circle nesties, and embellished with four small flowers and a pearl.  The sentiment is from SU! Teeny Tiny Wishes, and was stamped in Early Espresso ink.  I did, however, separate the words by cutting them in the middle, so they can fit nicely next to the tag.  I added a bottom border using the MFT Die-namics Simply Scallops Die and further embellished it with more pearls. To finish off the card, I looped green Baker's Twine through the hole of the tag.
