Paper Sweeties April Release Party!

Hi there!
Welcome to Paper Sweeties April Release Party!  This is my second post for today, so please scroll down to see my card for the Cardabilities Challenge.  Today for my card, I am using the new sets released this month.  And, they are available today...yeah!  They make for the cutest little nature them!
For my card, I started with a kraft card base and added strips of red paper for the sides and top.  The tree, swing, and grass were die cut using Sweet Cuts-Tree of Life.  The birds, owl, butterfly, and flowers were stamped using the Tree of Life add-on:spring stamp set.  They were die cut using Sweet Cuts-Tree of Life add-on:spring.  The leaves were die cut using the same dies.  The clouds were stamped using the Sending Sweet Thoughts.  They are actually the topping for a cupcake, but they are clouds!  And, they were die cut using Sweet Cuts-Sending Sweet Thoughts.  The sentiment that the owl is holding is from the stamp set Beautiful.  To finish off the card I used Paper Sweeties bakers twine(Strawberry).  

Another view of the little bird and owl...

You will want to visit my teammates to see what lovely creations they came up with...
