Spring Is On The Way! Bee Happy!

Spring is on the way, Let's Bee Happy!

Speaking of being happy, its time for a new challenge at Iris' Spot. This time, we want to see you use buttons on your project.

Our sponsor this fortnight is Ellephantastic. Come on over and play along with us for your chance to win some awesome digi images from Ellephantastic.

For my project today, I decided to make a tag with this cute image by Ellephantastic. I haven't made a tag in forever, and this image seemed perfect for one! I am so so so ready for spring and this bee just reminds me of Spring, so I went with a spring feel. And since spring makes me happy, the sentiment seemed to fit just right. This cute image is called Bumbella Bee. I just love her! The houdstooth and swiss dots patterned papers are scraps from my scrap box. The spotted flower is from Prima. I used buttons as the flower center and for accents on each side of the tag. bumbella bee and the sentiment are attached with foam mounting tape, for 3D effect and added dimension.
The hole in the tag was punched using my Crop O Dile Big Bite and the sentiment was punched with a heart punch by Marvy.

I am entering this tag in the following challenges:
