CC Blogiversary Challenge #6 - "U R how old?" GC tag

Hope everyone is having wonderful Thursday so far.  Almost Friday.....hang in there! 

Well stick a fork in me I'm done!  This is my entry to the last CC Blogiversay challenges.  For this challenge we were instructed to follow a sketch outline created by the awesome CC DT Cindy Royal.  Below is the sketch we were to use for inspiration:

I opted to make yet another giftcard tag, this time for my eldest brother who is celebrating his birthday this Saturday.  The base of the tag is a stamp tag image from Base Camp.  I also cut the coordinating stamp image from the same cartridge for layering.  The banner is from the CTMH Art Philosophy cart.  The balloon image and its layer are from the Smiley Cards cart.  I decided to use a Peachy Keen stamp for the face as the facial feature did not look good to my liking cut at 1.50 inches.  The cake image is also from the Smiley Cards cart. The sentiment "U R how old?" was cut from Base Camp cart.  I have used this sentiment in another card before and I really like pairing the sentiment with the surprised and the laughing emoticons ;). 

Here is a shot of the back of the giftcard tag.  I cut another layer in the blue printed cardstock but cut part of the image on the top so that the giftcard can easily stick out and be noticed (haven't bought the giftcard yet).  I finished off the giftcard tag with a ribbon, some buttons in the front and the back and some doodling. 

I am happy to mention that all of the supplies used were from my stash.  Project #10 for Using My Stash pledge at the CC MB!

Thanks for stopping by.  I had fun entering all the challenges and have enjoyed looking at others' creations throughout the week at the CC MBs and the CC Blog.  Good luck everyone!
