Celebrate Life card

Last weekend, I was at Costco when I found a huge case of patterned cardstock for sale.  Of course, I snapped one up and couldn't wait to get home...  Most of the papers are not my style, unfortunately.  However, I did find some that I quite liked, including the choices I used for this card.
The tree is from Paper Pups, and the little bird and nest are from Zooballoo.  I used Mini Monograms for the scalloped circle.  I also did a bit of embossing and inked a sentiment with a stamp from SU.  Everything else was done with a punch.  There's lots of popping on here too.
I am entering this card in the Easy Craft Projects challenge as well.  This week, the theme is spring.  Spring is my favourite time of year - a time to celebrate new life!
I'd also like to give a bit of credit to Jeannie Phillips here.  Her Be My Tweetheart card was featured in the Cricut Chirp a few months ago and has been in the back of my mind since then.  I just loved that card!  I used her idea of the window into the tree to create my own card.  Thanks Jeannie!

These colours are amazing ... I love the idea of highlighting the tree and using pattern on it and the background.
