Today the Creative Team are creating projects with either a Fall or Spring theme (Fall for the Northern Hemisphere, Spring for the Southern Hemisphere). As it is Spring here in Australia, that is what my projects are based on.

When I think of spring I think of flowers and butterflies – and so that is what I have included on this birthday card.

I have used loads of Print Candee goodies on this one. I created the sky background using the Cloud SVG Set, the trees are from the Whimscal Owls and Birds Clipart set, the butterflies are from the Colorful Patterned Butterflies Clipart set and the hills and flowers on the tree were created using digital papers from the Owlicious (Happy Colors) Paper Pack.

And because I love spring so much, I decided to make another project, this time a cute little bird house.

I recently discovered this bird house template from Nichole Heady – however I modified it. I enlarged the template by 160% before printing it off onto a digital paper from the Owlicious (Happy Colors) Paper Pack. I came up with my own version of the roof and added the scalloped edges with my Fiskars scallop punch. The digital paper for the roof is from the Chocolate and Pink Paper Pack. The bird is from the Cute Birds Clipart set. To add some dimension to the bird I propped up his wing with some foam dimensionals and added a black eye.

The next stop on the Blog Hop is Kalyn’s Blog. I can’t wait to see what awesome-ness she has created. And don’t forget that Print Candee is always offering specials. Head to the store and check out this week’s special and the hundreds upon hundreds of digital products they have to offer!
