MCT ~ Tag-It Tuesday

Good morning and welcome to a "new" segment Emma over at My Creative Time has decided to add to our Tuesday's. It's called "Tag-It" Tuesday. I adore this idea because Emma has the BEST tags out there! We will be switching it up every other week along with "Inspire Me" Tuesday.
Let's get down to business here, I sure don't want to keep you long today. Today we will be working with the colors, RED, ORANGE and YELLOW.  So I searched through all of my tags that Emma has created and decided to pull out her first tag she came out with. I love that this tag is large and fits perfectly with a large gift bag. I wanted to create my tag to go with the sentiment "Happy Birthday with a cherry on top!" I wanted to sue this sentiment forever and never had the opportunity. So I searched all my MCT products trying to figure out how I can achieve cherries. Well needless to say Emma's dies are so versatile that I knew it wouldn't be a problem at all. I took the circle ornament from the "Warm Holiday Fun" stamp set and just cut off the little nib. I knew I wanted stems too and thought I could use one of two dies to achieve them. One could have been the stem from the "Stitched Daisy Die" but I felt that wasn't thick enough. Then I saw the "Stitched Umbrella Die" and it has a layer for the top of the umbrella. PERFECT! What do you think??
Sorry for the gloomy picture but apparently sun is not allowed where I live. Note: the rain drops on my cherries too! Rrrr! LOL
Materials Used:
"Tag Dies" ~ tag
"Spring Chicken Backgrounds" ~ background on tag
"Stitched Square Speech Bubbles" ~ bubble with sentiment
"Warm Holiday Fun" ~ circle ornament die for cherries
Okay that is it for me today but head on over to Emma's blog, My Creative Time for even more inspiration on what to do with your MCT tags! Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by!
