I was bound and determined to use this set and make it work. I have tried countless times to use this set with the tree base and the snowflake, but it never looked right. I decided to give it another try but this time using the leaves and the flowers. Things went much smoother this time. I used the Color Challenge over at SCS for a starting point. The colors are perfect for this card. I took some inspiration from Dawn's card she sent me (see yesterday's post). I used the multi colored sentiment and button on the side. I love her card. I have it sitting right here. I also poppped up the flowers with dimensionals. I stamped most of the flowers with regal rose and some were stamped off with regal rose and then rolled in bravo burgundy. I added chunky sprinkles to the center of each flower for some sparkle. I decided that since this was a springy card, the bird really needed a nest. I created the nest by cutting Kraft cardstock strips super thin with my big SU! paper trimmer. I tied them in a knot and then knotted it again. I trimmed the ends and then applied it to the tree with a glue dot. I paper pierced the bottom with my mat pack and paper piercer. I had fun making this card! Thanks for fluttering by!
