Spring is in the Air!

I wanted to make a card for my Grandmother and when my awesome sister sent me the Serenade Cricut Cartridge - I knew that I wanted to do a card celebrating Spring!

I used a premade 5x7 card and cut a light blue piece of cardstock to 4.75x6.75 inches.  I then embossed it with my Sizzix Three Dots (found in the Birthday Set #2) and inked the edges in a medium blue.  I used my Serenade cartridge for the tree branch (3 inches), the bird (2 inches) and the cloud (1 inch).  I glued my tree branch and the shadow together and then embossed it with "stripes" from the Cuttlebug Animal Prints embossing set.  I inked it with Tim Holtz Tea Dye Distressing Ink (which is my favorite ink).  I glued the flowers on and then popped the whole thing up with Pop Dots.  I glued the bird pieces together then embossed it with the "feathers" from the Cuttlebug Animal Prints embossing set. I inked it with some blue ink to really bring out the texture.  It is also popped up using Pop Dots.  The title frame was cut from Accent Essentials and I used MS Word to make my sentiment.

I added a piece of  4.75x6.75 inch light green cardstock to the inside of the card.  I stamped it with some small flower stamps and another sentiment.

I am entering this card in two challenges.
1.  Charisma Cardz Spring Has Sprung Challenge
2.  Fantabulous Cricut Emboss it Challenge

I know my Grandmother will love this card (especially with the latest pictures of her Great-Grand-baby inside).  Thanks for stopping by and please leave me a comment.
