Hello Spring!

Hi everyone!  I don't know about you but I am SO over all of this cold weather and I am SO ready for spring and with it the warmer weather, flowers and trees with all their green foliage. All I want to do is stay bundled up with a cover and not move off the couch...lol. Well, I want to share a card I created awhile back for a magazine call but it wasn't selected. The original card had ribbon with the button but after looking at it I decided I just didn't like how it looked and removed the ribbon and added the polk a dot banner and moved the button off center from the Hello Spring sentiment. 


I think the updated version looks better than the ribbon I had original used. Don't you think?


For this card I used some product that would normally be used for Christmas and beach/ocean theme projects but I thought would work perfectly with the design of the card. :-) I started out with a 5"x7" Kraft card as the base for the card. The rabbit is fussy cut from the Farmhouse Market on Ivory Cardstock and then I applied Champagne Glimmer Glaze to the image and once that dried I added a little bit of Crystal Stickles to the tail and I applied some pink chalk to the cheek of the rabbit.


I added all the different layers of cardstock to the top of the card. I used the Spellbinders Bead Circles dies and I printed the sentiment from the computer and I finished off with a button, sequin and a dew drop.
Also I would like to submit this card for the following challenge:
 I hope you like the card and if you have any questions please let me know.


Supplies Used:

Thanks for stopping by, hope your Sunday is wonderful and enjoy creating!
