AAA Birthday challenge - DT card

Good morning lovely friends; I can't believe it's already December 1st - where did November go?  As it's the first of the month it means we have a brand new challenge over at AAA Birthday. This month's theme is 'add a tag' and has been chosen by Tristan.  Our guest designer this month is Helen Brammer so please pop over to her blog and leave her some love.  
As always I toyed with lots of different ideas, including making a card and matching tag but when I was looking through my stash I found this adorable mini tag so wanted to use that.  Here is my card:
a close up of the tags:
I decorated the inside too:
I began by die-cutting 5 of the mini tags from white card and then die cut the 'happy' letters from a rainbow of coloured cardstock and adhered them with liquid glue.  I tried adding twine but it looked too busy so I dusted off my Crop-a-dile and added some colourful eyelets to the tags instead.  I cut a panel of white card 3 3/4" x 5" and used a large script stamp for my background and stamped it in light grey ink.  To finish the rainbow I stamped the 'birthday' sentiment in purple ink.  The panel was adhered to the card base with liquid glue.  I added 3 tags with foam squares and then the other 2 were added with double sided tape.  I think it added a little interest to the card instead of having them all the same height.  I finished the front of the card with 3 silver sequins around the stamped sentiment.  The inside was decorated quite simply; the same script stamp was added to a strip of white card and this was added to the bottom of the panel with liquid glue.  I stamped a sentiment in the same purple ink. 

The Design Team have created amazing cards as always so please pop over to the blog and check them out and perhaps leave them some love on their blogs too.  

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Cut It Up challenge - use more than 1 die (letter dies and tag die)
Papercraft challenges - happy birthday
Seize the Birthday challenge - birthday creation - no topping this time

I hope you will be able to join in with our challenge this month but don't forget it has to be birthday themed.  I can't wait to see your creations in the linky.

Enjoy the rest of your day and thank you so much for stopping by.  

Love and hugs,
