Since we had snow earlier in the week, I went with a springy card...I know it has to be just around the corner!  Margaret is colored with pencils and I've used some colorful Doodlebug papers from my stash.  I've accented simply with ribbon and a coordinating brad.

CAS Bunny Notecard


Good morning!  It's time for a new challenge from the ladies at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight has chosen our challenge and she would like to see "Bunnies" on your creation.  Perfect timing!

I used From the Heart Stamps March SOTM Easter Trio; I printed it 3 times and used the bunny portion only.  The middle image is colored with pencils and I've dotted the eyes with a black gel pen.  It's hard to see, but there is a strip of textured vellum and satin ribbon behind the images.  Clean and simple with just a pop of pink in the image...kind of fun for a change of pace.
