Spring is in the Air

I haven't been entering many challenges recently and it is a pleasure to be back with one of my favourite challenge blogs, CD Sunday.

Their theme this week is Spring is in the Air.

I used a background and sentiment from the 'MyCraft Studio Elite Only Way is Words and Inserts & Backgrounds' CDs.  (These are absolutely brilliant.  The content of their CD-Roms is always wonderful, and the software is a joy to use.)
This was printed onto smooth decoupage paper, and I added 2 sweet birds cut from a paper pad, embossed flowers/leaf from Craftwork Cards (inked with dove grey), gems from stash and then stamped/drew some leaves/blossom on the tree to make it more spring-like.
It is mounted onto dark green textured card.

I also enter this into -
