Inspired By...#65

Yay, here we are in March, which means Spring is just around the corner!  I can't wait, spring is my favorite time of year!  I really wanted a spring feeling inspiration and although I first thought of daffodils and such... this photo really did it for me.



So how will you be inspired?  CAS, toys, stacked elements, colors...

I was taken by the clean and simple feel and of course the colors.  I have used the Pebbles Basics collection (the Cardmaking Pads) including the new Journaling Cards,  Washi Tape and Self Adhesive Flowers.  I created the tag from one of the The sentiment stamp is from the April Showers set by Technique Tuesday.  The twine is Divine Twine and finally I cut out the bird with my Cricut.


I am playing along with a couple of challenges.  The Paper Players:

And the Fantabulous Cricut Challenge - to include a Bird.


Now being that it is the first challenge of the month, I do have a prize up for grabs, so be sure to play along!
