HAPPY Birthday

Happy Monday!

Today is one of those Mondays I get to play along with PaperTrey Ink's Make It Monday challenge.

This week's challenge is to use a non-border die on the edge of a card.  I actually made a tag instead of a card.  This HAPPY die is one piece and fit perfectly with this challenge.

I also opted to enter this in the Stretch Your Stamps 2 gallery.  In class today, we learned how to get some extra mileage from background stamps.  Both my border and anchor are stamped and embossed using a
large background stamp,

You have all week to play along with the challenge at PTI.
