Oh, I'm Thinkin' Spring!

Can you tell?  I'm really starting to think Spring!  It got up to 48° F here yesterday and I SO wanted to throw open the doors and windows!  lol  Well, I resisted, but just barely...
Today's card is made using one of Fred She Said's very cute images called FSS- Bunneh! - Easter Bunny Digital Stamp and one of her many flowers (can't tell you which one...oops...cuz it is a leftover from a sheet I printed a LONG time ago).  Bunneh is colored with Prismacolor Colored Pencils and Dry Blended. and the Flower is done with Crayola very first project with these and I really like how vibrant it came out!  After it was all colored, I spritzed it with a bit of Glimmer Mist (hard to see in the photo, but it really is shimmery!)  The flower is part of a project I am in the process of doing thanks to Shelly's Spotlight over at Fred She Said last week!  Have you checked it out yet?  If you haven't you really should!  Shelly used a whole sheet of flowers and made it as a gift, but I am using up all the partial sheets of flowers and other things and making up a box of Quick to Make Card Stuff (just putting it all in an old puzzle box for safe keeping ;-) )
The embossing on this card is from a Cuddlebug folder and it is my first (successful) use of the stamp pad that comes with the Perfect Pearls (Thank You Tracey for the tip! ;-) )  I shaved a bit of green chalk onto a ceramic tile and added some of the Perfect Pearl Green Interferance into that and mixed it up good and used that on the leaves so it is more visible and not just glittery and shimmery.  Worked pretty good.  I saved the leftovers too.  ;-)  The sentiment is computer generated and cut out using the Spellbinders Nestabilities Label 1 die as is Bunneh.  A bit of ribbon and some 1/2 pearls finish off this card.

Oh and if you haven't entered the Challenge over at the Fred She Said Challenge Blog, you still have time!  Why not give it a look and come play with have a chance to win a $20 Gift Certificate at the Fred She Said Store!  Woohoo!
