Spring Time.

Here is the tag I have made for the March swap on The Altered Paper. The theme is Spring/St. Patricks. As everything I have used is bits of this and bits of that, I am also entering it into Di's
The green and yellow lace have both been in my stash since I last made the costumes for the dancing school I once co-owned (over 3 decades ago). The ribbon by comparison is a newbie at only just a yr old but still an off cut none the less. Flowers were made using a 1" 6 petal punch and an off cut of sktech pad paper. Painted using Luminarte paint pots in shades of yellow/orange/pink.
I'm loving using these pots and they are fast becoming my fav product for the year.
Note to Sherry. Look I have even left the threads hanging!
And of course the back where the wally shrink plastic heart button is hiding.
Entering into the following challenges.
My mums Craft Shop: Spring is Springing.
Ginger loft: Spring.
Polly Craft challenge: Spring has sprung.
