Exploring Cricut and More - "It's A Spring Thing"

Happy Monday! It's challenge time at Exploring Cricut and More. Make a card, layout or craft celebrating Spring and include at least 1 flower. 

I decided to create a card. I used my Cricut to cut the images I chose. The birds had legs on them but I cut them off because I wanted the birds to be resting on the branch and flowers. 


I chose to stickle the flowers so they would show up better on the white embossed scallop circle. The scalloped circle was given some texture by running it through the Cuttlebug machine. I used a brown marker to make the eyes for the birds.

Recipe:
A2 cardbase
Scalloped Circle - Elegant Edges 3.71"
Branch with Flowers - Gypsy Wanderings 1", 0.86"
Birds - 3 Birds- Straight From the Nest 1"
Cuttlebug Birds and Swirls
Orange, Yellow, Blue Stickles, brown marker

Thanks for stopping by and hope you join in the challenge this week!
