Wilson Designs: Introducing Spring Silhouettes

Well, Hello there!
It's Wilson Designs release day! Yippee!  
First up, I have a fun little project I created! I started with a little frame and some paint. I didn't like the green, so I "shabbied" it up with some Folk Art Vintage White paint.

I built my own sentiment greeting on this vintage tag I created. The glittered butterfly is also a silhouette from the set that I stamped in Momento grape ink, cut and covered in glitter! The frame and silhouette rabbit is also from this new line! So, there are 5 new stamps used on the frame! Fabulous! 



I then decorated a regular grapevine wreath with some springtime goodies found at Michaels and Joanns. I used more of the wonderful seam binding from MemrieMare to wrap the wreath and tie a shabby little bow. I then hung the frame with some grosgrain ribbon from the back of the wreath. I really like how it turned out. 
I love how simple yet elegant this card is. I distressed the edges to give it a weathered feel to match the seam binding which I must mention again I am in love embellishing with.  I stamped this adorable silhouette butterfly on my pattern paper and I stamped my sentiment over my image to create my focal point.  There are many more sentiments and images so go see for yourself:

Well my favorite thing about your projects today is that altered frame you did! I really like that you painted it up a bit but still let some green show through! This is sure one project that screams SPRING! I am so ready. :)

Hi Tammy! Lots to tell you: love that frame you attached to your wreath. I think I would've painted it whitish too; that green is *bright*! Love the damask inside the frame, and the little silhouetted bunny, and the shabby-chic tag. And then your card! The color combo is so pretty and definitely spring-y; like green grass and fresh earth. AND I see that Noor Nahdi wants to feature you on her blog! Go for it! Let me know when you'll be featured. I want to be sure to visit there. :)

Love how you've repurposed the frame, so pretty! Love your card too! I wish I could buy this set (I love silhouettes), but I fear all my money will be going to PTI this month lol!
