Happy Girl

Hi everyone,

I wanna begin this post to thank Terry for being on this amazing DT and for all that she did as this is her last challenge with us. She is so talented and that didn't go unnoticed, because she joined two other DT's! Terry, I wanna wish you the best of luck. I will keep in touch my friend!

Yippy, it's my birthday today and I'm in the mood for a little party! That's great, because Simon Says Stamp and Show has another amazing challenge for us and it's one where we can go crazy with lace and doilies! Something I need to do more often! I have enough doily stamps and lots of lace to do so! I did manage to not go overboard with this one. Well I think I didn't....



Celebrating my birthday always makes me happy, even though it means that I've become another year older. Think it's particularly nice to see my friends all together. And happy is the just word for this tag. The quote from Audrey Hepburn is so true!



For the background I used bright happy colors, such as Picked Raspberry and Seedless Preserves Distress ink. On the edges I stamped the half Maya Road Doily stamps. I think the mini gears also look like doilies, don't you agree?



Finally I used my Vintage Lace die, that I bought more than a month ago and hadn't used yet. Shame on me! Whahaha!



To join in all you need to do is make a project that fits this weeks challenge and you can be the winner of the $50 gift voucher that our amazing sponsor Simon Says Stamp offers. This prize will go to a random entry. So go over to the Stamp and Show Challenge blog, let the DT members inspire you and join in the fun!

Thank you for stopping by! Love to see you next time!

Hugs,
Sandra

What a gloriously happy tag! Love it. Love Audrey Hepburn too. It's funny what you said about gears looking like doilies, because I was looking at some doilies yesterday thinking how much they looked like gears :-) Maddy x

This is a very girly one...I like the dramatic mix of colours softened by the lace delicate pattern...

Hey Sandra...Happy Birthday once again! Your tag is so pretty. Love the vivid red background. The black stamping against it is so striking! The silhouette in the center really pops. And the sentiment is so funny...love it! <3 Candy

I adore how vibrant this is - most people think of delicate colours when lace is mentioned (myself included) but this is such a wonderfully dramatic but still very feminine creation - I think it is wonderful!

Maria said...

Love this tag! It is so fun and girly but totally grungy!!

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

That's a stunning tag! I love that rich red and how the lace shapes stand out. Blessings!

I think someone stole my comment - I know I looked at this earlier - beautiful. Well done Sandra!
