Vintage Easter

Hello lovely friends,
hope you are well!

I can't believe that Easter Sunday is almost upon us... here in the UK we celebrate it by buying chocolate eggs, filled with candy, for friends and family. We also have the traditional Hot cross bun; a small, lightly sweetened yeast bun that contains raisins or currants. The reason they get their name is due to a cross being slashed in the top of the bun before baking, when cooled confectioners' sugar icing is used to fill the cross for decoration.

The traditional Easter egg hunt and egg and spoon race are also part of the Easter celebrations for children to enjoy. 

I created my tag, using this beautiful wood design paper, it is one of my favourite products to use at the moment, as it adds a natural, shabby look to any design.
 I have also used this gorgeous vintage image layered with a soft rose crackled wood paper.

Here I have created a shabby floral collage, by adhering a cute little wooden bird cadge, a mixture of dies and two fishtail banners, which are made out of Kraft cardstock. All of these embellishments have been dusted with Picket fence Distress paint.
This is another favourite product I love to use on my designs.

I have also adhered a metal fountain pen nib and 
Easter greeting to add some more interest to my tag.

Finally, I adhered some more beautiful soft pink mulberry roses and matching die cut to the top right hand corner of my tag. 

I would also like to enter this into the following challenges;
