helau hearts (ATCAS, TPE, SSS, BGC)

Quick one folks.  Gotta party to go to.  Neighbor guy.  Die-hard soccer fan (nearly as bad as DH).  So he's gettin' a gift certificate for the fan shop.  And this is what it looks like all purtied up.


First off, like my laundry room backsplash?  And the lousy lighting?  It's dark outside and I have to give this to him tonight!  Apologies.  The certificate is in a purty red envelope inside the bag.  Our team?  Mainz 05 case you're interested.  The moved up into the premier league a few years ago and they're pretty easy to love.  Anyhoo...

The motto printed on the bag translates roughly to "The 05ers - in our hearts."  So I die cut a heart out of some fabby Basic Grey birch bark PP and placed it to highlight the word "hearts".

Die cut a tag from the same PP, stamped a circle outline, masked it and stamped the little hearts BG.  Adhered an aqua die cut heart with the sentiment on it.  A closer look at the tag...


Are you wondering about the balloons and streamers?  Well, helau!  It's Mardi Gras time again.  They call it the fifth season of the year in Germany - at least in our region.  It's party time, folks.
