Jumping back in with a SSS birthday challenge

I'm jumping back into paper crafting today with the Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.  They are celebrating their 6th anniversary this week, and I want to celebrate right along with them.  SSS is my all time favorite store (of any kind).  Their products are amazing, and so is their customer service.  The only 'complaint' I would have is that when I place an order, the product isn't on my door that same day!  I hate waiting for the goodness to arrive!  =)

I haven't made a card in over a year, so I decided to start off with a tag.  I used the stamp set  'Big Birthday Wishes,' which was in the April SSS Card Kit.  I used the Lawn Fawn Mermaid ink and Ranger Liquid Platinum embossing powder.  I have gotten so rusty that this pretty simple tag took me over an hour to make.  I relearned a few lessons (like use a powder tool when embossing!) with this tag, and am looking forward to moving on up to making cards again soon!
