A tag and flowers

Hi everyone,
So glad you came back. Here it is Jan. 25 and I'm on challenge card 29 . Today I'm playing along with The Paper Players. First I want to say thank you for choosing my card last week. I was so excited I had to call everyone I know.
 For this challenge Jaydee says to keep it clean and simple and should feature a tag..

I love making cards, where the focus point is a tag. My tag is die cut using Sizzix Scallop tag die. I did have to shorten it a little bit. By papers, inks, stamps and punches are all from stamping up.
Papers: Old Olive, Baja Breeze, Certainly Celery, and DSP is Green Tea.
The happy birthday is from the Well Scripted set and stamped in Old Olive. The flowers are punched out and crunched up to separate the layers, then put back together with a brad. The leaves I punched out using the build a bird punch. I added a ribbon knot at the top of the tag and wrapped a piece around the lower half of the card.

I like the polka dot ribbon with the flowered background. I sure hope you like my card and I hope you're come back again.
Thanks for stopping.
