Birthday Tag card

I've been going through my paper stacks and trying to use up some of the oldies.  I thought this looked kinda Autumnal, perfect for this time of year.

I've used my only Tiddly Inks stamp - coloured with pencils.  Clear gloss and glitter added to the balloons, bows on her shoes and to the scallops on the edge of the tag.  I also had a play with my new Creative Expressions bow die - I added an extra shim and it cut much better this time.  MFT Peek-a-boo dots die.  I wasn't going to add a sentiment but then I managed to make a dirty mark on my tag, so added my Happy Birthday as a final finishing touch.
