{KKS109} Happy Day Tag

Hi there! I am so excited to show you this tag I made with one of the newly released Kraftin' Kimmie stamps! You might remember that last weekend was the big release, and poor me didn't get to participate due to the snail paced postal system:( I know- so sad that I didn't get my stamps in time...I was practically heartbroken, especially this being my first release as an 'official' Krafty Girl!
But believe you-me sisters, I am going to make up for it...umm..HELLO....Alice in Wonderland Moonlight Whispers!!! Could it get better than that. I doubt it. Well, maybe if I made a Mad Hatter card, sent it to Johnny Depp and he fell madly in love with me;)

But for todays Krafty Challenge: Tag It!, I decided to use one of Cheryl Alger's little cutie patooties from the amazing (and big) set Sugar and Spice!

I used paper from Authentique, a premade manilla tag (the large 3 1/8 x 6 1/4 size, trimmed to 6" length to accomidate the size of the 6x6 paper pad), TCP's seam binding in cranberry, a Webster's Sparkler and a SU! large eyelet. I coloured up the image with copics and paper-pieced the dress, ribbon and balloon, adding shading with my warm greys. Three tiny twinkles (TE) were added as buttons on the dress.
I had planned on adding some ribbon to the top of the tag, through the eyelet, but with the ribbon bow it ended up looking to busy, so I might have to add something in the future to attach this tag to a gift:)

I hope you'll check out the Kraftin' Kimmie blog to see what the rest of the team came up with! And play along with this week's challenge for your chance to win a new KK stamp!
