77 Hugs

               





 I used a few challenges for this one starting with a color challenge. Using distressed inks, I blended Spiced Marmalade, Salty Ocean, Chipped Sapphire and Hickory Smoke.  Using a die from Clearly Kelly, I cut the tag using the blended cs.  I attached orange twine to the top of the tag.  I then stamped a large daisy with white embossing powder onto the tag.
Using my Cricut, I cut the two 7's (actually six of them) using Plantin Schoolhouse cartridge (I love the font of this cartridge)  and stacked three together to give them some height and then glued fine orange glitter on top.  Using my cuttlebug, I cut three hugs using Simon Says 'big hugs' die.  Stacking them on top of each other and then again, covering with orange glitter.
Using white cs, I ran an outline of orange, blue, navy and grey marker for a border.  I mounted the tag and the 7's to the card and then mounted the hugs to the tag.  I added the three sequins to the top corner.
I would very much like to add this card to the following challenges.
Chocolate, Coffee and Cards = Use a number (7's)
Simply Create 2 = sparkle (glitter and sequins)
Four Crafty Chicks = Glitter (orange glitter)
CASology = Rough = Glitter
Fantabulous Cricut = ATG ( using cricut cartridge Plantin School House and cuttlebug )
Just Us Girls = photo colors, navy, blue, grey, green and orange.

             





 Freshly Made Sketches = sketch number 246







Thank you so very much for looking.  Have a great day!!

That sponged tag is gorgeous with that pretty white bloom! Love that striped border around the edge that you created, too. Thanks for playing with us at JUGS!

Dawn, nicely done! I love your border! Perfect borders are so hard for me. The embossed white flower is perfect on your tag. Stacking layers is my favorite card effect. I avoid pop up tape as much as I can by layering cuts. Nice job! Thanks for sharing your talent at Fantabulous Cricut!
