"Holy Guacamole" tag

Hi guys!! So glad you stopped in today. I have this fun tag to share.
I cut the tag and avocado from the Preserves cartridge. The tag measures 5" (with the matching rounded rectangle) and the avocado measures 4 1/4" (and all it's layers).  The brown houndstooth paper is from DCWV's Spots and dots mat stack, the rest is from my scrap bin.  All layers of the avocado are cut from Post-it Brand Self-adhesive Craft paper.

I printed the sentiment using Prestina font at 20 points. It's punched with my EK Success Photo Label punch.

I inked all the edges of the avocado (and the brown tag layer) with a dark green ink and my finger dauber. It's attached to the tag base with pop dots, and the leaf and pit are mounted on another layer of pop dots. White gel pen doodling finish off the tag.

I wrapped the tag both with some white craft string and added the same string to the top of the tag.

What a fun birthday tag! Your avocado looks great on that houndstooth paper, and your sentiment is perfect.

Like the guacomole tag. You indicate you used Craft paper. If you used Kraft paper (spelled with a K and not a C) then there is a blog TheKraftJournal that has challenges and you have to use Kraft paper. This week's challenge theme is Movies, Songs or Books. Just thought you may want to know and ck it out.

I love this! I just got the Preserves cart, but have't used it yet, and my husband is famous for bringing his guacamole to our family gatherings, so this is perfect.

Did you announce the winner from Deborah's surprise birthday blog hop, or do you just contact your winners directly?
