Birthday 'Gator...Tag You're It Challenge #27, Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes

Hello,



Time for Tag You're It Challenge #27 to begin...and check out the absolutely darling delight that Anja created to dazzle and inspire us! That little turtle is fabulous - and how impressive is her die-cutting...and colouring....and stenciling...and sponging?  Talk about ever so many idea-sparking possibilities!


As you can tell, I'm smitten with Anja's tag, so I set out to case hers, with a twist.  Introducing my Paper Smooches 'gator, who's smiling not only because he's wishing someone a 'Happy Birthday' , but because he's happy about sporting a 'reasonable' green-and-brown suit coloured with Chameleon pens.


Making this card/tag was quite fun, especially since I only had to toss a couple messed up 'gators before I created "the one."

Please be sure to scope out what my amazing teammatesErinDonnaJeanne, and Kara Lynne -  and our talented guest designer, Betty,  have created...then join us in the gallery! YOU could be one of our guest designers!

I'm also heading to Simon Says Wednesday Challenge~Anything Goes

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments add sparkle to my day!
Hugs,

Ooooh, how fun! The colors are amazing. Like how you used that stencil in the background (grin). I also really like the colors and the bit of texture on the big tag under the alligator. Awesome tag!!

I love the fact that you 'tossed out some 'gators' !!! So glad I'm not the only one who won't settle until it's 'just right' :)
Well done, you. Cute tag/card combo :)

I'm quite sure that gator 1 and gator 2 were fine...but that beingsaid, gator 3 looks mighty fine in his Chameleon get up! Nice touch with the subtle leaf images and beautifully shaded spotted tag!
