Welcome Spring!

Happy Wednesday! We're half way to the weekend! :-) LOL If you've been following my blog at all, you know that I have been into making these accordion tag banners. I think they are just precious. My husband just rolls his eyes when I put them on the mantle! Anyway, I needed a new one since my "XOXO" one from Valentine's Day is a just a wee bit outdated. So, here's my newest banner - "SPRING"!
I used some of the Bitty dots patterned paper for the background for my tags. I love that paper! All the parts to this are from PTI except the letters, which are from a DCWV embellishment box I got before Christmas and some DMC floss on thos buttons. Here's a couple of closer views at the fab little letters. I did do some stamping ... all those little yellow flower centers were stamped with an image from the Life set. Way cute! I see some cards coming on with some of these color schemes.

Well, that is all for now. The PTI blog hop is tonight ... my post will go live shortly after 5 PM. This month's challenge was all about creating your own background. Well, I do that in just about every project! What an easy challenge for me! :-)

Card stock: New Leaf, stampers select white, Lavender Moon, Aqua Mist, Lemon Tart, Summer Sunrise, and Berry Sorbet
DP: Bitty Dots (Lavender Moon, Aqua Mist, Summer Sunrise, and Berry Sorbet)
Ribbons & Buttons - PTI assorted satin and grosgrain ribbons; Hibiscus Burst vintage button
Other & Tools: Chipboard letters by DCWV, DMC floss, SU! circle and scalloped circle punches, hole punch, Scor-Pal, paper trimmer, Glossy Accents, TE sticky tape
