12 Tags of 2012 and Spark!!!

Hola! Happy last day of April! Eeek, can't believe I'm sliding in under the line with my April tag for Tim Holtz's 12 tags of 2012! I've been planning my tag out in my mind since Tim posted it, but have never gotten around to until...yep tonight!!! Here's my tag inspired by Tim's April tag....I'm kinda in a hurry so if you have any questions about the supplies I used just leave me a comment and I'l edit this post with my supply list. Also entering my tag into Simon Says Stamp and Show-- Kaleidscope of color challenge

Updated tag: So I was feeling I wanted a little more to my tag, so in the wee hours of the night I added some splatters of mist and this little bird...(oh and natural light is much nicer)

And I also spent time last night making a card for a friend using the current Paper Smooches SPARKS challenge. And also entering into Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog- Anyting Goes!

Here is the inspiration photo....

And here is my card....

I was inspired to use the Studio Calico chevron background stamp because it reminded me of the waffle cone. And my patterned paper choices were based on the colors in the inspiration piece- blue, red, orange, and green. I don't know if you can see it, but the pink banner has little cherries on cute- love that paper (Crate Paper)! I just adore the little gnome and mushrooms from the Paper Smooches Forest Whimsey set! The sentiment 'Whimsical Wishes' is also from the set. And the 'Get Well Soon' sentiment is from Docerela Creations.

Ok, thank you so much for stopping by! Have a great week!
