Beautiful Spring and WOYWW #148

WOYWW #148

I made this tag for the tag making group over at Tag Tuesday, and it's still on my workdesk.  Silhouettes seem to be a popular trend recently, and I was inpired by some cards that I saw online to use this silhouette image of a little girl dancing happily through the grass with her flower bouquet and Easter egg basket.  The sentiment "Nothing is so beautiful as Spring" is written in such lovely font, I thought it was perfect with this happy little girl.

I used this same stamp to make some card fronts, ready to mount onto some Easter cards, you can see them all ready to go, along with a clean and simple card design I was trying out in the back.    There is also a cut out of little girl with wings, not sure what I am going to do with her, she seems to be sitting, so I don't know what to put her on.  I'd love to hear your suggestions!

If you are wondering why I am showing you my workdesk, it's because it's Wednesday, and Julia over at Stamping Ground invites everyone to show their workspace.  It's fun!

I'm posting my tag in a few new spots, Artful Times Challenge- Make a Tag
Artistic Stamper-use ribbons and lace and Mojo Monthly at La-De-Dah   I love seeing all the creations in response to these fun challenges.

  12. Hi Barb,
    This tag is beautiful! She'll make great Easter cards too. There is something really cool and old fashioned about silhouettes. About the girl sitting - she's adorable. Maybe an old fashioned bike? or a mushroom?
