Birthday Card & Tag

It's my sister's birthday next week so I HAVE to get her gift and card into the post today, or it will be late! I bought her something luxurious from Nordstrom and yesterday decided to make her card. Nope, not happening ... I made a card, it's just not special enough to give to my sister so I decided to wait until today. I got up bright and early and decided to pack up her gift in the beautiful silver and gray Nordstrom box and there you have it! The perfect colour combo right there in front of me. First came the tag ....

The SU exclusive 'Two Tags' Die did the trick for this ... plus the new vintage labels set which fits beautifully with several of our punches. This one is for the scallop punch. And after spending the day with Debra, last week, I was convinced to buy the gorgeous sizzlit alpha, another SU exclusive called 'Timeless Type Jr' ... come on girls, who could resist THIS box! I know, I'm weak, what can I say!

So after that tag was made, the card was easy! Same colours, same idea, but with the vintage vogue wheel as a background. I love the simplicity of it ... and I hope Sarah will love it too :) Happy Birthday Big Sis! Love you!
