Just Us Girls #330 - Trend Challenge

Hello friends!  It's time for another challenge from Just Us Girls!  This week is our Trend week, and Ina has chosen to add a tag to your project for the challenge.  I love tags, don't you?
 
So I broke down last week and purchased the Stamp of Approval collection from Catherine Pooler.  I don't usually care for buying kits, but this one is not a kit as Catherine says.  It's a collection of stamps, dies, and a stencil.  No paper, which is fine with me because I am finicky about my paper (and I have too much of it!).  So I thought I'd give this one a try and I really like it!  I took the stamp that looks like a streamer and stamped it randomly in three different colors.  Then I die cut the tag and the bubbly piece from white cardstock.  That bubbly piece was covered in Versamark and gold embossing powder.  The sentiment was stamped and embossed in the same manner, and I added three candles stamped in the same colors as the streamers.  I had a scrap piece of pink ribbon that I strung through the tag and tied it off with gold twine.  Some gold and clear sequins finished it off.
 
I took my color combination from this week's Colour Q challenge.  Lovely color combo!

I like that addition die cut on the edge of your tag -- plus, that sentiment is fabulous [I don't EVEN count candles anymore ;)]

Love the gold on the side of your tag with the candles. Gorgeous colours by Colour Q and you have nailed it especially with the fabulous background. So very pretty.
