I'm so anxious to see the birds arrive, which will be a sure sign Spring is on the way. I decided to use the cute new die from Impression Obsession with the little birds on a tree branch. The number of this die is 058-N. To frame the scene, I used two new sets of Spellbinders dies. The large one in the back is the "5x7 Enchanted Labels 28" die. On top of it I layered the A2-Filigree Delight die. In this set you also get the oval insert and I sponged that with Distress Inks. The back of the Filigree Delight die was lined with a Navy blue card stock to match the bottom mat on the card. I die cut two of the corners from the Filigree Delight set and glued them to the sides of the Filigree frame. This frame was attached with dimensional tape. The oval was also attached with dimensional tape. The little sentiment is from the Penny Black "Enjoy Life" clear stamp set.
To add a little more "Spring" to the card, I decided to add a yellow rose that was created with the Spellbinders "Spiral Blossom One" die. It was die cut using yellow card stock and sponged lightly with orange Distress Ink. The leaves and baby's breath are from Cheery Lynn.
