Tag Tuesday - Spring Flowers

The inspiration for this weeks Tag came from some old cards (60's-70's) that I recieved when I was younger (won't say how young though, LOL). All my relatives are British and they always sent (I thought) the most wonderful greeting cards.
Many were from Gordon Fraser - which I think still prints cards - that had cool designs and colours.
I love this one - and don't plan to use the originals any time soon in my artsy stuff.
Another card maker was Kaye - Whimsy cards. I particularly like the bluebird.
So fitting with this week's theme I made this tag using fabric, paper and embellishments. The quote "The Earth Laughs in Flowers" Ralph Waldo Emerson seems quite appropriate, don't you think? Enjoy, Jewels (p.s. this tag may look familiar to some of you - I made one like it over a year ago that went MIA in the mail to the intended recipient - I decided to recreate so I would have one for myself)
