Now for some inspiration...

To make this card, I used the burlap background stamp 
from Impression Obsession on ivory card stock. 
I stamped over it with Winnie and Walter stripes stamps, 
using distress inks, spritzed with water. 
Once the panel dried, 
I added sentiments from MFT stamps "Celebrate Big" stamp set.

I added some burlap twine from MayArts ribbon 
and sequins from Pretty Pink Posh to finish the card.

To make the tag (cut with the mft tag die),
 I used the honeycomb stencil from 'CraftAdda' and Fired Brick distress ink from Tim Holtz.  
I then filled in some of the spaces with Sakura Koi watercolours in primary colours. 
The 'hugs' die is from Winnie and Walter. 
To make it pop, I added a bit of vellum under the die cut. 
I finished the tag with some black cord.
