Time For Spring Challenge

Welcome to a new challenge at Melonheadz Friends. Our focus this time is spring. Oh, lovely spring! Seems like it took FOREVER to get here this year, didn't it?? I'm happy to make spring cards anytime, really. They are so cheerful and colorful and....well.... springy! Here is my card for this challenge.

I used the Background Pieces set to create my scene. The birdhouse, flower box, and grass are from this adorable bundle. First inked my card base with very light blue and light green inks for grass and sky. My clouds are a simple die cut which I embellished with a little pen work and this sweet sentiment. The tiny sun is a stamp, the tiny butterfly is a punch, and the tiny bird is a wood veneer that fit perfectly onto the perch.

Here you can see the added dimension I created with foam tape and a few layered leaves, in addition to the wood bird. This background pieces set is a must have. Check out all the other elements included here.

Also, be sure to link up on the Melonheads Friends blog your Time For Spring project for your chance to win sweet goodness! :) Thanks for coming by, and as always, thank you for your sweet comments. ♥
