Starry and Flamingo Smiles...Tag You're It Challenge #29

Hello,

TGIF! I don't say that very often, but today, much 'thank goodness' is happening: end of the first week of work, heading to visit my family (excitement galore!) and the pleasure, for the first time of being your hostess at Tag You're It Challenge #29!  It's a big difficult to see, but my card is embossed with the Winnie & Walter multifaceted die, which I inked slightly in pink. The stars (Chameleon coloured in pink) and the smile die cut are also W&W; the tag is Reverse Confetti and the sentiment is from Verve.

I made this tag/card  a while back, and at the time, wasn't sure if, how or when I would do a 'remake', as I've not cased myself before.  I thought about leaving it as is...and then the RC Flamingo arrived. Decision to re-make: done!  My 'new'card drew inspiration from the old in the following ways: embossed backgrounds, black/white on the tag, pink elements and, obviously, a repetition of the gold 'smiles' die cut.  Different, but similar.  And as I told you in my previous post: you'd be seeing the flamingo again, very soon. This is soon *grin*


The design team  - ErinDonnaJeanne, and Kara Lynne, along with our talented guest designer, Karren - have created some outstanding tags and I'd so love for you to visit over at the Tag You're It blog. Dazzle and delight 10000000% guaranteed. 

I hope my tag inspires you to design one, or more, of your own and come to play alongside us. Remember: the winner is invited to be the guest designer for the next challenge.

See you in the gallery!

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

Great CASE of your original tag card my friend. I hope your family visit is as fun as mine was! Those kidlets really wore me out, lol! That flamingo is soooo sweet! Love how the black just accents everything, and that gold sentiment is the most perfect finishing touch for this. Great card, and I just love it! Bev

Jeanne said...

Fantastic work, Carol. Love the soft colors in the first card and the embossing in the background. The flamingo makes me smile. That's all there is to it! Thanks so much for sharing. Hope you have a fabulous weekend. :)

Karren said...

Two fabulous cards and it was a delight to use your inspiration to make my GD card. Love the colors with the pop of gold and the flamingo is just too cute!

Bobby said...

Love both cards, Carol, but for different reasons. Though they have the same design elements, the feel is totally different, the first being elegant and classic and the second bright and whimsical. Great job, my friend.

How funny to CASE yourself, don't think I've done that yet?? Would be quite fun to do. You did a fantastic job and your right, the flamingo was the perfect addition. I feel we may see alot of 'Pinkie' over the next few weeks, which I think is pretty awesome, she's very cute.....

Marybeth said...
