For my card I used Spring is Sprung again. I LOVE everything about this set. The bunny image, the bird image, the flower and the sentiments.

I stamped the image on a 3 7/8″ wide piece of Solar White cardstock with Tuxedo Black Memento ink. The bottom of the image panel was cut and embossed with a Grand Label 4 Nestabilities die. I had seen that on one of Debbie Olson‘s cards and LOVED the idea.  The image was colored with Copic Markers ( Bunnies: E40, E41, E42, E43, E44, R00, R20    Grass: G20, G21, G24   Tulips: R11, R12, R14, YG21, YG23, YG25   Bell Flowers: B63, B66    Tiny Flowers: Y13, Y17    Sky: B0000, B000, B00).

Two pieces of Pink Paislee’s Hometown summer paper were adhered together forming a 4 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ layer. Part of a doily was adhered to the left hand side and Cotton linen Green ribbon was tied around where the layers meet. The image was adhered under the ribbon. Three different color pink buttons were stitched to the left hand side with embroidery floss.

A 4 1/4″ x 11″ piece of Kraft cardstock was folded in half. The lower edges were cut with the next size Grand Label 4 Nestabilities die before the layers were adhered to it. The upper edge was stitched on to create more interest. A Recollections Rhinestone swirl finish off the card front.

The inside of the card is kept simple. A 1 3/4″ x 4 1/4″ strip of Hometown summer paper was stitched to a 4 1/4″ x 4 3/4″ piece of white cardstock before it was adhered to the inside of the card. A sentiment from Spring Is Sprung was stamped in Tuxedo black on the right hand side of the strip.
