Birthday Tag and a Colored Digi

I have a tag to share with you Today... After trying the No Color technique on my digi this weekend I was hooked on it. And knew that I wanted to try it again. Only I took it a step further this time. I have seen this technique where  you choose a colored ink for your stamps.. But still do not color any of it. I thought it could only be done with rubber or clear stamps and a colored ink pad!!! BOY was I wrong. I had seen this tutorial before at CDAC hosted by Faith from D2D. but never attempted to try it. She has a great tutorial for coloring "digi images".  I choose to use this cute "cupcake" image from Michele Perkett. For this week's challenge on her Blog is Its "Hip Not to Be Squared" make a card or project as long as it is no squared or rectangle.  I made a Tag for my entry along with my colored digi items. I took it a step further and learned from another Tutorial for embossing on digi items"  ( you should really check out CDAC.. awesome place to hang out ;0) Don't you love my ribbon.. I went thru my stash and found this. I bought it last January from CHA Craft show and had forgotten about it.

Tag: cut out with my Cricut: (George Basic), DP. New Christmas paper (I for got the name. purchased from Die Cuts R us), I-Rock bling and tool

This card is also for the following challenges:
