Happy Easter! 12 Tags of 2013- March

Happy Easter scrappy friends! I hope you're enjoying a wonderful Easter weekend! I've made it a scrappy goal this year to play along with all of Tim Holtz's 12 Tags of 2013 and I just finished my March tag in time (to see my January/February tags, go here). I followed Tim's design fairly closely this time - but as I didn't have the dies he used, I used my Silhouette Cameo to cut the shapes. (Have I mentioned how much I love my Silhouette Cameo?) Here is my tag and some close-ups - hope you like it!
I went with brown ribbon for the top of the tag because I thought it had a nice chocolate colour.  I didn't have crinkle ribbon (though definitely plan on acquiring some), so I used twine to wrap around the bunny cut-out and added an extra twine bow at the top. And, since I didn't have any of Tim's tinsel, I used flowersoft for the bunny cut-out - love how that turned out - a nice fluffy white bunny. I cut the bunny cut-out in more of an egg shape than Tim's design and also embossed it with my cuttlebug.
I decided to use a fussy-cut word in place of the banner element - so I cut this adorable Easter egg title and chicks from Tim's seasonal paper stash.
Finally, I added some flowers and a leaf from my stash as the floral element.
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog - and Happy Easter!

I never comment, but.... I love Tim's work and ideas, but you have really outdone him with this tag. Thanks for sharing.
