 Hello friends and welcome back!  I appreciate you stopping by today!  😀 Today is Day 3 of Bugaboo Stamps 11th Birthday Bash, and it is Monday, so that means it's also Anything But a Card (ABC) day.

Here is my creation -- a jumbo sized tag:
My tag measures 4 1/8" wide by 5 1/2" tall, and I designed it in Silhouette Studio.  The cloud layers were die cut using Puffy Cloud Borders, and the ground layer was die cut using Stitched Hillside Borders, both from Lawn Fawn..  I used Oxide inks in Tumbled Glass (sky), Shaded Lilac, and Worn Lipstick (clouds), and Cracked Pistachio (grass) to add lots of pastel colors.  I also added a vellum cloud layer between the two colored layers.  
Now, the cute image is Bugaboo's Birthday Hedgie 01, and I also sized and cut him out using my Silhouette Studio software.  He's colored with alcohol markers, and I added "hairy" details using a colored pencil.  I also added more detail to the image by adding clear Wink of Stella to the balloon, and then covering it and his little nose in a layer of Glossy Accents.  After that was dry, I used a white Gelly Roll pen to add in the shine marks.  I also added the white gel pen to his eyes, and to his party hat.  You should be able to see these details better in this close up pic:
For a final touch, I added Star Dust Stickles along the stitched edges of the clouds.
