Tomorrow is Haley's birthday!

Haley is celebrating her birthday tomorrow. We celebrated today at our house with some delicious dinner and a special chocolate cake.  Yes, I know, we already had a birthday celebration for Oliver just a few days ago, but her birthday is just as important.  Not to mention that Becca's birthday is on the 14th, and we will honor her the next day.

So, I was inspired by Tim Holtz's 12 tags project. I really liked the mono printing technique in the 12 Tags of 2016 February tag and decided to give it a whirl.  As Tim said, "whether you’re a card maker, scrapbooker, mixed media artist, or if you just like making tags (like me), you can utilize these techniques to suit your creative style…". Haley's card was just the place to try out this technique. In addition to using some gold embossing powder on the background stenciling with Ranger Texture paste, I also added the EP on the butterfly.  She really liked the card!
