Simon Says Stamp Challenge: Simon Says "Tag it!"

Had an opportunity to use some of my favorite Tim images on this Challenge by Simon Says Stamp. I am so looking forward to Spring that I grabbed this "Urban Chic" set. I love the sentiment even if it is a bit "off" theologically speaking. I love the bird and the vines!

I started with A Muse Studio card stock in Sugar and used several different T. Holtz Distress Inks to create the faded blue green background. Stamped the Vine in Forest Moss and the Bird in Walnut. Then I fussy cut the bird and popped it up on dimensionals and couldn't help thinking about the video "Put a Bird on it." I used BasicGrey decorative papers and some hoarded lace on the tag bottom. Then I finished it off by adding die cut alpha letters from PTI.

Another stretch far from my comfortable clean and simple style, but oh, so fun!

Go give it a try yourself @ Simon Says Stamp

Thanks for looking!
