IBSIC #9 - Inspiration Photo Challenge

Hello!

**Edit to note: Yipee! This card was selected at TOP THREE at The Kraft Journal**

The sentiment was stamped on a digital image from The House Across The Bay which was then layered on a handmade chipboard tag I created from a recycled cereal box.  It was run through my crimper to give the corrugated cardboard appearance then painted and sanded. 

Flowers from my stash was added to the top of the tag. I love using tickets to stamp images and sentiments on my cards! :-)

I am personally adding this to The Kraft Journal - Thank You challenge. 
Sweet Stamps Challenge - Favorite Color (Aqua and Pink)

Enjoy the rest of your day!

Hooray for Cheerios boxes! (or any kind of cardboard packaging, for that matter) Love the crimped effect you gave it.

I just made some glittered stars - a whole mess of them - tonight, from a cereal box. It's fun!

Your card is beautiful, Tammy, and I see we are 'neighbors' at the Sweet Stamp challenge. Cool!
