Spring has Sprung or has it?

Hi Everyone!

**Wohoo This Card was Featured on the CARDS/CREATE Blog 4/5/12 So Honored Thank You**

I have another Spring/Easter card to share today!
My card uses the bunny and Welcome Spring sentiment from Wilson Designs Lacey Lovelies.  I just adore this set. Have you checked it out?  I just love it.

I was inspired by the colors at Embellish Magazine to jump start my card today.  I started with a pink card stock that was already in my stash and while visiting my go to scrap box I found all the pieces and parts to make this Spring card come together.  I added a yellow dotted patterned paper to my card base. Next I added the pretty pastel pink patterned paper across the top below my stamped sentiment. Next I diecut and the layers for my focal image.

The lacey bunny was stamped in white craft ink on pink cardstock that coordinated with my base. I applied white embossing powder and set with my heat tool.  I fussy cut the cute little guy and added to my center die.

To complete my card I embellished with a seam binding bow, button and twine also adding a layer of carnival tickets to the bottom topping with some Berry Sorbet buttons.

I was inspired by these challenges.
