Happy Spring for C&S, CR84FN and Crazy 4 Challenges!!!

Happy, Happy Wednesday to you!

I'm hoping that this card will MAKE spring arrive..........since Monday night we got buried in a ton of snow in Pennsylvania! 

I was so happy that I had a Copic marker to match the lilac base card.  It matches perfectly!

This little cutie bunny needed some love, so I just had to create a fun card using it.  This was in my February shipment from the {stamps} of life.  I love being in Stephanie's club because I probably would have never bought this set, but now that I have it.......I adore it!  Don't you just love the little bunny patterned paper that I made using the 2 smaller bunnies in this set?  I did the light/dark stamping technique that Stephanie showed in one of her videos.  It really turned out much better than I thought it would.

I used several challenges to create this card.  The first one to inspire me was the Clean & Simple #128 Sketch Challenge.  As soon as I saw that large die cut, I knew that the bunny would fit.  Then, since Crazy 4 Challenges has a challenge to use die cuts on your card........this definitely worked!  Finally, I needed some color inspiration......enter the CR84FN #16 Color Challenge

Materials Used: 
the {stamps} of life - Bunny4Easter (big bunny and smaller background bunnies)
PTI card stock - Soft Stone and Sweet Blush
Taylored Expressions card stock - Lupine
My Mind's Eye patterned paper - Simply Delightful (dark gray matting) 
Spellbinders Nestabilities - Curved Rectangles  
Memento ink - London Fog

Stampin' Up - Square Lattice embossing folder
Copic markers - C3, C5, RV11, V04

Thanks for checking out my blog today!

What an adorable image! We've had some spring-like weather lately but I think the weather man has more snow in the forecast for us!

LOL! That little bunny holding the sign is sweet! It reminds me of our Easter cards from a few years back... we used to take a pic of our little one with one of those rabbit ear headbands on, and he would be holding a Happy Easter sign... those were our photo cards!

Very cute Stephanie! I just love this stamp set too! Like you, it's probably a set I wouldn't have gotten if I weren't a club member, but I've already used it a lot. Great job coloring the bunny!
