The Paper Shelter (TPS) Challenge #77 - Clean & Simple

Spring is my inspiration for this week. It's a season where there's greenery everywhere & when flowers starts to bloom & birds sing to celebrate this wonderful season. The main colours I used were green, yellow & white. Green from the lush pastures, yellow from the golden honey & white from the fluffy, marshmallow clouds. :D

I also chose a simple image, "In the 20s" for this card. After I've coloured the image, I fussy cut her out & mount her against the Square die frame.
I love Cheery Lynn's die & here's another that I used - Dutch Scallop Square (DL140) to frame the image. For the background of the card, I used 3 different designs of fabric tapes (Collection: Enfant) from Love My Tapes.

 Coloured her blonde with beautiful green eyes. I wanted to give her Cloche hat texture so I coloured it in random shades of brown to give the hat a felt, woolly look.
To keep the simplicity of the card, I decided to place the sentiment inside the card rather than my usual outside & further decorate it with fabric tapes.
