Think Spring!

Hi everyone! It's been getting warmer here and even though there is still a ton of snow on the ground, there are still some signs of spring! Above zero temperatures, birds chirping, sun shining, and now it's April! It has been a long, cold winter here and I am really looking forward to some green grass!

This is a spring themed card I created for two challenges:

Peachy Keen Stamps Challenge - follow this sketch:

Fantabulous Cricut - Spring Theme

I cut the bunny at 2.75" from the Create a Critter cartridge. I stamped the face with the Critter Faces Medium Set by Peachy Keen Stamps. I drew on the ear details and added faux stitching with my Stampin' Up! markers.

The basket was cut at 1.25". I used Stampin' Write markers to colour a flower stamp, stamped it on white paper, then trimmed around the image to put in the basket.

The pebbles around the outside were clear ones that I found in the floral section at Michaels and dyed with alcohol ink.

The card base is brown Core-dinations cardstock which I ran through the cuttlebug using a border strip folder, then sanded over the embossed design.

"Think Spring" is from a Scrappy Moms stamp set.

Hope you like my card and thanks for stopping by my blog!
