Celebrate Spring With A Little Twig!

I love to incorporate unique items on my cards.  I've been known to try everything from silverware to coffee filters and more.  Today I am going to share with you a fun card using a twig on it and featuring the fabulous blues and yellows from the Nostalgia line.

I sent my kids out to hunt for twigs for this card.  I think they thought I was a little nuts!  I picked this one because it had some little buds on it that added in a second color. I decided to hand cut some little green leaves to add to it. 
 I added the twig to some simpler patterned paper so it would be more visible.
 Adding it then to a busier background paper that I just couldn't resist for this springy card!  I topped the whole thing off with a doily at the top to add to the soft feel of the card.

Have you ever used anything out of the ordinary on a card?  You should give it a try!  You might be surprised how much fun it can be!
