Let's See A Birthday ABC!

Welcome back to day three of our birthday celebration week at Catch The Bug, where we're celebrating the 3rd birthday of  Bugaboo Stamps.  Today is Anything but a card day, and our theme for today is to use Black and White, with only a pop of color! So it's my turn to make something for your creative inspiration, besides a card, using the color theme.  We have a mix of cards, and other goodies to show you, compliments of the DT, so head over to check them out and play along in today's black and white with a pop of color challenge, at Catch The Bug

Today, I made a set of coasters for you, using ceramic tiles.  These make a great gift for friends and family and they seem to love them.  For this set, I have used the image and sentiment set, Gus Birthday - Over The Hill, from Bugaboo Stamps, colored with Promarkers. The black and white striped paper is from my stash.  These coasters were made using multiple layers of Modge Podge on tiles and sprayed with Sealer.  I cut cork to put on the back of them, and attached it with E6000.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
