Celebrate Spring Card

I created this Celebrate Spring Card for the Bitten by the Bug 2 Fence Challenge and My Pink Stamper Challenge.  I don't have the Cricut Lite Bloom Cartridge, so I used the Gypsy Wanderings and the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cartridge.  I am really looking forward to planting some flowers and enjoying a beautiful spring after the long winter we have had.
The fence was cut from Gypsy Wanderings at 1 1/2 inches, and then embossed and distressed with platinum ink.  I cut the word "Celebrate" at 1 inch from Gypsy Wanderings.  I cut out the center spike of the fence and liked the overall look much better.  I cut the clouds, both flowers, the little blue bird and the word "Spring" from the Stretch Your Imagination Cricut Cartridge.  I used several different Cuttlebug embossing folders and tone on tone ink for some added dimension.

Unfortunately, I couldn't capture all the wonderful detail this card has (I will try to take some better pictures tomorrow, if we get a sunny day as promised).  In the meantime, Thank you for looking and please leave me a comment.

This was a great challenge...I really want the Bloom cartridge now that I have seen the awesome things people have made with it.

I love your take on the fence. It looks like wrought iron. Thanks for playing along at BBTB2.
