Spring is just around the corner and we are having beautiful weather here in Central Texas!  For this project I created a Spring banner.  I used the colors from the Papercraft Star Challenge along with papers from The Girl's Paperie.  The letters are from Tattered Angels.  The chipboard tags were purchased from Michael's dollar bin.  I just had a lot of fun adding bits here and there that reminded me of the spring time.  For the "S" I made a crepe paper rosette and edged it with some stickles, and spritzed it with bamboo shimmerz.  I trimmed the bottom with some lace and adhered a butterfly from Jenni Bowlin.  The "P" was made by creating a paper rosette and edging it with pink glitter from SU.  I edged the Rosette with the white Tombo glue and dusted it with the pink glitter.  I then added some vintage lace.  For the "R" I cut a flower out of printed text which I colored with chalk ink.  The flower die is from SU.  I edged the bottom with pastel buttons, with some flowers adhered to every other button.  The "I"  was made from the negative space of the letter.  I edged the pink flower under the "I" with glitter as well.  The Easter images are from Crafty Secrets.  The "N"  is glittered with Dazzling Diamonds and placed on a ribbon rosette, with a piece of felt tucked behind it.  Which brings us to the "G".  This was made by using a bird cage die from Tim Holtz along with a chipboard bird from Tattered Angels.  I trimmed this one with some sheer lace and a satin ribbon.  My apologies for the epic post.  Thank you for stopping by and taking a peak!  Hope you all have a great weekend!
