Spring Has Sprung

Hi Everyone! I hope you are having a good day. Well, Spring has sprung here in our area. The trees and azaleas are beautiful! I want to share a tag I made for Tim Holtz's tag challenge for the month of April. I had fun using the lattice cut from tag board. I used a brand new mixed media embossing powder from Sparkle N Sprinkle called Copper Flame and added in some Sparkle N Sprinkle Candlelight and Cerulean Star embossing powder with it. I love how the lattice turned out. Here is a close up of it. I love the shimmer and shine.

I also used some washi tape with birds on a wire that I recently received from a good friend of mine. She knows I love birds. Thank you so much, Kim! It went perfectly with this tag. Speaking of birds, I used my favorite bird stamp. He looks so chirpy for Spring!

To see Tim's demo, please click here. I always enjoy working with his fun techniques. Here is my completed tag with my handmade flowers.

Thank you so much for stopping by. I hope you have a great day!
Happy Spring!
