Tag You're It Challenge #30 and MFT Design Superstar Challenge

Happy Friday!

It is time for a new challenge at Tag You're It and I am posting a tag today after a very long break. I am so lucky that I have such an amazing design team that kept the challenge running smoothly in my absence and made it so easy for me to do the background work without having to chase them around.

This challenge we have a special treat over on the Challenge post with inspiration from our own Nancy Penir.  I took my inspiration from her shaped tag and I could not wait to play with some NBUS MFT goodies.  Which is such a coincidence that my friend Darnell is hosting another challenge the NBUS Challenge #5!



I layered three kraft MFT Contempo Bird Cage dies cut to give my tag some strength. Then I coloured and adhered the palm tree from MFT Tiki Party and adhered it to the back and then coloured and adhered the bird from MFT Birds of Paradise to the front popped up with some foam tape for dimension.



I will be entering this in the MFT Card Design Superstar Contest!


...and Darnell's NBUS Challenge #5


...and I am also adding this to the Simon Says Stamp Stamptember Use a Stamp Challenge.



Have a wonderful weekend!
