Pocket Tag Birthday Card

My sister-in-law is having a birthday this coming week and I wanted to make my real first pocket tag card.  She has the Southwest Native American decor and furniture throughout her home.  Therefore, I wanted a card that would match her decorative theme.  I came from the Southwest area and love the popular colors of corals and turquoise.  

I colored the Whimsy Stamp 'Wynat Beautiful' with Copic Markers.  I cut this picture using a circle die and glued it onto the Cherry Lynn Design 'French Pastry Doily' die.

Last week, a special friend was selling some of her retired Stampin Up supplies and I bought this beautiful Stampin Up ruffled coral ribbon and turquoise paper.  The lace ribbon and stamp are also from Stampin Up.

The boutique flowers are from Wild Orchid Craft flowers and I made a few roses using the Cherry Lynn Design Medium Rose die.  I glued the Cherry Lynn Mini Leaf Flourish behind the floral arrangement.

The printed paper and card board tag are from Graphic 45 'Baby and Bride Classic Collection'.  The embellishment under the lace ribbon is actually a turquoise earring.  My friend and I were at a garage sale yesterday and we found a sack full of earrings.  This turquoise earring didn't come in a pair and thought this would be a nice touch to this card since it represents the Southwest.

The top of the tag is 'Anja's Vintage Decoration' by Marianne Design.  Also, I added the dragon fly that comes in the set of Cherry Lynn Design 'Tiny Things with Wings'.
