Think Spring ...

By starting with a sheet of cardstock that was already decorated with the cute little birdhouses, this layout was a snap to put together.  
Sometimes it's hard to know how to use the preprinted pages and make them your own.  It's easy to stop with just a few photo mats.  However, as you can see ... it doesn't take much to really bring them to life.  Right away I knew a fence in front of the bird houses was a must.  The flowers and butterflies are plastic buttons I've had in my stash for awhile. 
 This page is so bright and cheery and it just wouldn't be complete without a little sunshine.  Had to throw in a small cloud to help the sun stand out.  Love the journal tag that matches the cardstock.  I stamped the "spring has sprung" sentiment on it.
 Materials used:
Cardstock & Journal Tag - DCWV Spring Stack (from a couple years ago).
Fence - My Community Cricut cartridge
Sun - Doodlecharms cartridge & Peachy Keen stamp
Cloud - Pooh & Friends cartridge
Misc. embellishments

Get well card using flowers & butterflies on Kate's ABC's Cricut cartridge.  Embellished flowers with Liquid Pearls.
