I decided to play around with the adorable Keepsake line from My Little Shoebox.  The pinks, turquoise, yellow, orange and grey are a beautiful, spring-y palette and the flowers, musical notes and birds are irresistably cute!

 I used a Chipboard
scalloped page from Trunk Punky and misted the scalloped edge with
Starburst spray in Cattail Copper Brown.  I layered 2 papers from
Keepsake (Razzleberry & Garden Delight) for the background, with the
print over the solid, distressing the edges of both and folding over
one corner of the cute floral print for interest.  I used another
subtle print for the chipboard bird and used a small Lil' Blossom
(parchment) folded for the bird's wing over a small piece of Lacy
Blossom.  For the inspirational quote I printed the saying off on my
printer, then adhered a Journaling tag (Simple Treasures) which I
taped over the first paper and then printed it again. This was adhered
over a small Lil' Lacy Blossom sprayed with Hottie Patottie Pink
Starburst.  I used a twig I found outside for the bird perch.  For the
nest I scrunched together some crinkled Kraft packing material with
tulle and twine.  I used more tulle for the hanger. Fun & simple!
