Spring has Sprung...

Good Afternoon...

....and what a super one it is for the first day of spring!

I could n't resist making this card, everything about it just seemed to match 'today'.

I have used a lovely Lili of the Valley Stamp 'spring bunny with daffs' which I have coloured with copics.  I really tried to go for a clean and springlike look to match the lovely weather so I resisted the temptation to add lots of layers and embellishments.  (That took a bit of chocolate I can tell you)!

I used a single piece of core'dinations whitewash collection card stock which I embossed with clouds and rubbed down with a sanding tool.  I mounted the coloured image on the card and added a piece of green saddlestitch ribbon from my 'collection'.

Finally I added a pretty green blossom from The Ribbon Girl and some flower buttons and embellishments from my trinket box.

Here we are - a 'sprung' spring bunny...

Hmmmm...guess my first try at leaving a comment didn't work; let's try again, shall we?

That bunny image is just TOO CUTE! Thanks for sharing your talent with us! It's rainy and gray here today; trying to get my crafty mojo in gear. Looks like it may require donuts. Congrats to Alan on passing his driving test!

This is such a beautiful Spring card Sue... perfectly CAS! I love the picture in my head I have of you having to eat chocolate to stop adding embellies - I'd never thought of doing that - such a good idea!
