Tag You're It - Hello Beautiful!

Hello and thanks for stopping by!  I'm excited to share another new challenge at Tag You're It!  I love the inspiration every other week from some of my favorite designers.  I really enjoy seeing projects through their eyes and then CASing them to put my own take on them.  This time the inspiration is from Anja Curvers!  Don't you love this cute puppy with the "Ruff day?" sentiment?  It's like they were just meant to be together. 

I immediately zoomed in on that watercolor background - it made me think of giving my dog a bath, and sometimes the little muddy pawprints they leave behind when its wet and rainy (like it's been so much here lately).  This one would be so easy to take in so many different directions - especially the dog - since mine is near and dear to my heart.

Oh but.. so much want to make this my own and take it in a different direction. 

I decided on some tropical flowers.  The sentiment "hello beautiful" works perfectly with the flowers and I still got to play with some watercolors to make a bright bold background. 
I kept the layout of the tag exactly like Anja's - triple stacking the "hello" die cut.   A few gems add a little sparkle and unexpected dimension to the design.
Now it's your turn!  Come and play with us at Tag You're It!  I can't wait to see what direction you take this clever design!
