Happy Birthday, Tracey!

Today, I'm very excited to be participating in a Linky Party for my friend, Tracey McNeeley.
I've been a fan of Tracey's for a while now, but we became friends while designing 
for Fresh Squeezed Stamps together.

I was inspired by the the latest Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge to created my card....


... as well as by Wplus9's Monday Mood Board #22.


And here's my card that I made, combining some stamps from Papertrey Ink and Wplus9.


I stamped my images and sentiments (from PTI's Wreath for all Seasons) on my tag 
and then ran it through my die cutting machine with my woodgrain impression plate 
(as I did with the Little Yellow Bicycle patterned paper background.)
I then added some die cut flower/berry images from Wplus9's Fresh Cut Florals and 
a couple of tiny feathers heat embossed on vellum from Wplus9's Fanciful Feathers.
A button and some twine finish it off.

So, happy birthday to you, Tracey-- I hope you have a fantastic day and a wonderful year ahead!

I'm also linking this card up to this week's Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Anything Goes.

Thanks for looking!
