Friend of mine has a son that she has a poker party for each yr on his birthday. She asked for me to create a birthday item she could give to the people attending so I came up with this Jack of Diamonds Tag.

Created this Tag using a sketch which you can see below. Used Tim Holtz die for Tag & embossing folder to make the Jack of Diamonds. Used a Spellbinder die to make the white strip & red diamond sentiment tag. Stamped Hero Arts birthday sentiment. Added hand written calligraphy 'Jack.'
