Color my world with family, friends and some time to be creative making cards!

Spring is in the Air


Hello again! We have such a great challenge starting today at The Paper Players! Claire is our hostess and she has a wide range of ideas for you. The Theme this week is Spring! Where is your creativity going to take you? Our graphic below shows so many possibilities! I am in full Easter mode right now so it was perfect timing for me!

I am also linking up with the dear Darnell over at NBUS as this adorable set from Avery Elle called Some Bunny is brand new to me! I just love it!

Card Details: Not much to share; I sponged the background with Oxide Inks and a stencil I made with a Lawn Fawn hills die. The balloon is colored with chalk as I tend to be heavy-handed with ink blending hence the dark green side of my hills. Bother! The eggs were made with a small Spellbinders oval die. Finally, the cute bunny who I am in love with was colored with Copics and light-colored pencil. I have him popped up for dimension. The little heart is a punch made shiny with Crystal Effects.
