Waiting for Spring

This cold weather can go away at anytime!!  I am trying to bring a more cheerful scene into the house.  Slowly decorating until that warm sun wants to come out for a little longer.  I want to go for walks and have lunch outside.  Open my windows during the day and swing on the swing set!

I made this to set on a shelf in our living room.

I used another left over cut 2x4 from my room remodel
I sanded down and spray painted white
Paper from K& Co, Cord'nations, MS, DCWV and other various scraps
Background paper was cut at 3.5" and mod podged onto the board
Font was from Birthday Cakes {cut at 3.25"}

This was much bigger than my light box {sorry for the angled picture}
I took closer images for you to see more of the embellishments

Accordion flower was folded by hand, circle punch by Fiskars

Butterfly was cut from April Showers {1.25"}

Pinwheels are cut from Mothers Day {2" & 1.25"}
Flowers are cut from Mothers Day Bouquet {, 1.5", 1.25", 1.0", .25"} all layered and held together with a brad
I used Bakers Twine  and buttons all over

This was a lot of fun to make! Gives my living room a great punch of color.
