Happy Birthday Tag-Tuesday # 52



One of my favorite challenges celebrates one year today! Thank you Louise for your dedication to do this!

The theme was 52 and as I just got new distress inks, I thought I would have to use them on a tag. I have symbolized the 5 with four pearl and one gem embellishment and the 2 with two dragonflies. All stamps are Hero Arts except the 52 numbers.

I never use orange or yellow but I'm going to give them a try for a while.

I cannot sit too long behind the Internet today as I decided to do some exercise yesterday and I'm sore all over...

AND A HUGE THANKS FOR ALL THE WELL WISHES I RECEIVED FOR MY WEDDING ANNIVERSARY - IT MADE ME SO HAPPY!

This tag turned out so beautiful! The colors are nice and soft, and your distressing looks wonderful! Can't wait for more in orange and yellow! :)

  3. Lovely and inspiring tag, Jacqueline! I love how you used yellow and orange to make this so bright and cheery. I have many thanks for Louise too, as her Tag Tuesday has been a wonderful way for many of us to exercise our creativity. Speaking of exercise...I hope your soreness will be short-lived.
    bless you,
