Theme Thursday - Stamped Backgrounds

This is my entry for this weeks' Theme Thursday. I used pale lemon/green paper from DCWV Far East & overstamped it in red & green with this Honeysuckle background stamp.
I then stamped some vellum & two tags in Script, in two shades. The tags are attached together with a pale lemon brad. I added the image I stamped of the Angel Child & a few Words cut from the rest of the piece I stamped to use for my Arty Girlz card. All stamps Crafty Individuals, click on their names to see the actual design. The one thing that I think is missing is a small flower in lemon on the tiny tags, but I can't find any for love nor money. I still have my page for paper08 to finish. I have to admit I lack the enthusiasm that i had doing Em Falconbridges' Deck of Me last year. The larger format is more difficult to fill especially after as it gets so dark early still. I'm prefering the smaller challenges which can be completed easily. This one I began at 5.30am as I get up for work then & needed to create after a fuitless night last night!

Wonderful!!! Love it, and about the paper 08... it's different, I agree, but maybe you shouldn't think to much about the size and just start creating! I find it difficult sometimes too, cause I don't want to use photos.. and boy, that's hard!! I just journal away and still manage up till week 3 LOL
