Sweet n' Sassy! and First Day of School.....again!

I created this card using the Birthday Fun set from Sweet n' Sassy! I stamped the candles and colored them in using my Copics. I added Stickles to the flames. I made the tag using my very old, ancient Sizzix tag die. I cut it 2 times and cut the bottom of the orange tag with pinking shears. I layered it and tucked the candles in. I adhered the ribbon and stamped the sentiment at the bottom. I cut the large 3 with my Cricut machine. The paper is SU! and Memory Box.
Cortney started her new school today!!! She had a great day! Even her bus drivers are nice!!

Love your card. The tag is fab and looks great with the candles.

Glad Cortney enjoyed her first day at school. It's always so nerve wracking isn't it and then such a relief when they come home and everything has gone well. She looks like she had a great time - lovely photo.

Is your daughter going to Elim in Crestwood? I was born and raised in Crestwood . . . just curious if it's the same school. I'm glad she had a good day.

Anyway, I LOVE the card! So bright, colorful, and cheerful! Fantastic!
