Polkadoodle Challenge - Spring Is In The Air

It's time for a new Polkadoodle challenge and the theme for the fortnight (the challenges now last for 2 weeks!) is Spring Is In The Air.

I've taken the theme literally this week and made an exploding box with springy MUM letters! The papers are from Pen and Paper Circle issue 9 and I've used a Sizzix die to cut the letters and then added them to some craft wire which has been very much glued underneath the rolled flowers. I've added some clear doodle drop gems to the centres for extra sparkle - and they are reduced in the shop too!

I've also used a Sizzix scalloped tag die and handwritten the sentiment. The ribbons are all from my stash and I was rather pleased that they matched the papers perfectly!

Good luck with the challenge - closing date is 4 April.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Divas By Design: Flowers
Paper Shelter: More than 5 Flowers
The Three Muses: Spring
Ladybug Crafts Ink: For A Special Lady
Papertake Weekly: Special Lady
