Cooking It Up

Every other week I make a card for the Cooking It Up with Katie challenge.  I've been doing this for awhile so you'd think I have it down to a science, but no, I'm almost always the last one to get my card off to Katie. Luckily for me she's a sweetie and she never complains. 
This week the recipe for challenge #59 is to "use ribbons, tags and bows. Pretty easy, huh?  I thought so and I went on my merry little way, printed out this fun digi primitive bird house image from Robyn's Fetish (this week's sponsor) and got to work.  I love this dp from Cosmo Cricket, I think the little birdies are a perfect compliment for the birdhouse.
So what went wrong?  I forgot to write down the recipe, you'd think I could remember those three things (I thought I could).  I had my picture edited and ready to post it to Katie when I looked up the challenge # and noticed I was missing a tag!  Dang.  Well, luckily for me I could just tie a tag to my bow which is what I did, the problem, by then it was too dark to take a decent photograph.  

don't forget the inside
