Doodlie Birthday

Hi Crafting Friends,

It's AAA Cards first birthday and I just had to make a card so I could join the party :)  I'm so glad I managed to link up before it there just in time!!  I've been meaning to play along for the last week but other chores got in the way. There is just never enough time for crafting!  My inspiration for the colours and the tag with the tassel are from Curtain Call.  I loved the green, gold and pink pretty.

I recently got my hands on some PTI goodies and it was time to play with them!  I absolutely love the Doodlie-do flower set, it's going to get alot of use!  I also used the linen impression plate - love, love, love!

PaperTrey Ink - Doodlie-do Stamps 
Paper Smooches - Sentiment Sampler 
Lil' Inker Designs - Anytime Tags
PaperTrey Ink - Linen Impression Plate
PaperTrey Ink - Doodlie-do Dies
AC Amy Tangerine - Rise and Shine Paper Pad
Memento Ink - Tuxedo Black
Ranger Liquid Pearls - White Opal
Ranger Liquid Pearls - Gold Pearl
Ranger Stickles - Gold
Zig Wink of Stella - Clear Glitter Pen
Heidi Swapp - Gold Colour Shine 
DMC - Gold Glitter Thread
DMC - Very Dark Cranberry Thread
DMC - Light Teal Green Thread
Wooden Leaf - from Stash
I coloured the beautiful flowers in with my copics and added some wink of stella and liquid pearl drops. I used to co-ordinating dies to cut them out.  I die-cut a tag with paper from Rise and Shine pad and stamped happy in the top left hand corner.  I layered the flowers and leave in the bottom right hand corner.  I made a 'tassel' from three different DMC threads.  I used PTI linen impression plate on a panel of plain white card stock and spritzed it lightly with gold colour shine. I then adhered a strip of paper down the left hand side.  I stamped 'birthday' with tuxedo black ink directly onto the panel.  I attached the tag to the card using foam pads and added some gold glitter drops to finish. I hope you like it.  It's not quite what I had envisioned but I think it turned out all right!

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for visiting, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
