Think Spring Challenge at Dies R Us

I hope you all had a 'lovely' (pun
Valentines Day yesterday...I know I did!
So, here we are the day after which brings us to a new
challenge at the Dies R Us challenge blog
with the theme being
'Think Spring'.
A great challenge, as I don't know about you,
but I am so ready for Spring!

I made a colorful little scene using several different dies.

I started with a pretty designer paper for my background
from Wild Rose Studio.
I then started building my scene in layers
first with 
Impression Obsession Love Birds
These I die cut a few extra pieces for color, the birds,and a few leaves.
I die cut the Impression Obsession Birdhouse Set next,
trimmed off the poles, and tucked them in behind the birds.
I added a grass border in front using Impression Obsession Grass Border
and tucking a little kitty in the grass Impression Obsession Cats

A sentiment was stamped and embossed with Wild Wasabi EB powder.

Make sure and join in the challenge with us at
Dies R Us as there is always a prize up for grabs
and wonderful inspiration from the fabulous Design Team !

So much cuteness, and I love every bit of it. Wish we had such pretty birds in the garden. Ours are mostly gray and brown. I'm ready for spring after all the rain we've been having!
