Swing Cards from the train on Creative Kuts Posts

Cheryl Scappinmini has a couple of "train" sets going throughout the year on Creative Kuts Posts. It's not really a train but she calls the year-long commitment that. You also get discounts from her store website at http://creativekuts.com/

This is the first of the swing card set from the January card set I made. I will add more here as I make them. 

The flower was a flower I had in my stash. The skunk is from a Cricut Disney cartridge https://www.amazon.com/Cricut-Cartridge-Disney-Best-Classics/dp/B004GXACD2
The butterfly paper is from DCWV Blossoms and Butterflies stack http://www.joann.com/dcwv-12inx12in-premium-paper-stack-blossoms-and-butterflies/9604992.html.

Spring layout...Hope Spring follows soon

I also searched for Tree, Easter, and shrubs to find the other elements.
The embossing on the tree is from Crafter's Companion https://www.hsn.com/products/crafters-companion-textures-embossing-folder-8pc-set/8167151?query=8167151&isSuggested=true. Other places have them also,
