Taylored Expressions Blast from the Past Blog Hop

Hello friends & followers!  Today I am participating in Taylored Expressions' Blast from the Past Blop where we give a little love to some of Taylor's previously released sets - the theme: Birthday!  (or if you preferred "birth day" - Taylor recently had a beautiful bouncing baby girl and we are helping her celebrate!  Congrats Taylor!)  I decided to use TE's 'It's in the Bag' set and coordinating shopping bag die (isn't it the sweetest?) along with Sketch 112 from Tuesday Morning Sketches along with some patterned paper by S.E.I.'s Charlemagne collection (I love its varnished papers and shiny copper accents - was I the only kid who thought copper was WAAAAY prettier than silver or gold?  But I digress... here is my card:)

(Please click on the photo for clearer resolution).  Isn't that die just the sweetest?  And it cuts out that cute little label shape that the sentiments from the set fit on too!  Perfect size for tucking in a little candy, chocolate or even a rolled up dollar bill as a my friend Karen suggested the other day!  The possibilities are endless!





This card also fulfills the requirements of the following two additional challenges as well:




Thank you so much for visiting my blog today.  I hope you like my card and have a wonderful Wednesday!
