CR84FN #59 ~ Happy Birthday!

Hello! I almost let time slip away before entering my card at CR84FN! Don't you hate it when you have the card ready then go to link it up only to find the challenge has closed!?! Well not this time I have a day and a couple of hours to spare. Coral, Brown and Tan are the colors we've been given this week. 


I started with two panels from the MME: Rosy collection. Next I layered on the die cut filigree border from PTI. The cute bingo paper is Echo Park and was die cut with my PTI spiral notebook page. The bingo markers are gems and little hole punch pieces. My fancy Inkadinkado dragonfly is stamped on a Spellbinders label 18. I added the corner stamps (also Inkadinkado) to echo the fancy scrolls and flourishes in the dragonfly wings. This scrap of ribbon is very gauzy and a touch on the flimsy side so I tied in some button twine to the bow to give it a bit more umph! This entire panel was added to a Calypso Coral (SU) card base with foam tape. 


Thanks so much for taking a peek at My Paper Tales today I appreciate it! ~Lisa
