Put On Your Spring Bonnet with All the Frills Upon It.....


I moderate the Oh La La group at Bella Creations.  Each month we use an image donated by our group sponsor, Gecko Galz, to create some art work.  In April I'm having a tag challenge that includes decorating the bonnet on this image from the Gecko Galz Hats ephemera collection.  Come on over to my Oh La La Group at Bella Creations to join in the fun.  Winner, chosen by random draw, gets a free ephemera set of their choice from Gecko Galz.

When I saw this week's challenge at the Shabby Tea Room, I knew this tag would be a perfect fit for their theme.  The Shabby Tea Room Week 56 Spring Color Challenge  is to use the colors  in this inspiration photo plus a neutral.  I kept these colors in mind as I chose my tag background, trim and embellishments for my spring bonnet tag.

I was happy to clean out some of my old stash: the patterned paper that matches the colors perfectly,  the blue metal label holder, tiny flower brads topped with a couple of pearls, some flower trim for the hat, and the big Petaloo flower.
All the trims on the bottom of the tag are new this season.  The hatpin and pink pearls (earrings) are from Melissa Bove's blog candy.
