"Orange" Tag

Hello, and happy weekend to you!  We started off the day with a birthday breakfast for my dad, so I can already tell it's going to be a good day. :) Often it takes me a long time to create a card (or tag in this caue) because I hem and haw over the details.  But every now and again the idea...and more importantly execution...comes quickly.  This is one of those happy times.  Laurie Willison (I'm probably one of her biggest fans!) is up on Papertrey's blog this week for a Make It Monday: Cover Plate Tags.  I loved the idea, loved her tips, and loved that it fit into the time I had, which was not much. ;) My project was also inspired by this BEAUTIFUL photo I found on Pinterest.

I adore this picture, and in no time I had created the tag using lots of PTI paper and dies: Bountiful Banners, Cover Plate: Stripes Diagonal, Noted (hello), Tag Sale #4, and Turning a New Leaf.
I love oranges, I love these cards, and I love this tag.  It's so simple, but it's one of my all time favorite projects.  Thank you, Laurie, for the great idea that clearly brought a lot of happiness to my day!
