Hi there! I hope you had a great weekend! It's time for an all new Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge! This week Anna-Karin is challenging us all to be inspired by yellow. From soft buttery yellow to electric neon. I can't wait to see what you create!

The color yellow reminds me of signs of Spring ~ newly blossomed flowers and sweet little birds chirping about which was my source of inspiration to create my tag. 

I added texture to the Ranger Manila tag using the Bricked Texture Fade, applied a thin coat of Gesso then added color using mustard seed and scattered straw Distress Inks followed with more texture using Tim Holtz Doily stencil.

I embellished with a die cut Caged Bird along with a trio of blossoms that were die cut using the Simon Says Stamp Bella Bloom craft die along with French Industrial paper and scattered straw Distress Ink. 
I completed the tag with one of the many fun sentiments included in the Stampers Anonymous Tim Holtz Hashtags stamp set and a May Arts Ivory twine bow.
Thanks so much for stopping by! Please be sure to visit the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge blog to see what the rest of the DT has created!
