Longing for Spring

 
Hi All, today is still so cold here in Michigan, I am truly longing for some Spring like weather!  So I guess that's reflected in today's tag for Tag Tuesdays  prompt "Pleats, Folds and Tucks".  I also wanted to incorporate the  City Crafters challenge "Do You Speak English" into my tag.  I had this great lace trim that is already pleated for me so I was excited to build a tag around it. I used a free image from Fripperies and Butterflies along with Gecko Galz Digital Spring Dreams mini paper pack.  The pleated lace was originally a bit wide so I cut it in 1/2 lengthwise.  I guess I did all three here after all, the lace itself is pleated, I tucked it around the whole edge of the tag, then folded it into 3 bottom layers.  I also added some Tim Holtz Distress ink and pearls, mounted it with my Perfect Layers Rulers too.
Be sure to stop by both blogs Tag Tuesday and  City Crafter and see all the beautiful work those designers made too.
That's it, thanks for stopping by to look.  ~Diane

  3. Those pleated lace ruffles are so pretty. I like the pink satin trim. I am longing for warmer weather as well. Enough is enough! We have more snow coming in this weekend.
    Your tags and cards are always so pretty.
    Have a great day! At least the sun had been out, hopefully by you as well.
