Bunnies and butterflies

Good morning to you, I hope you are feeling well and full of the joys of spring !

It is school holidays here in the UK and we are busy here. We spent the weekend at the seaside and then visited the spring lambs at the farm yesterday - I do not care how old you are those SUPER cute lambs can melt any ones heart.

Today it is time for the first of the challenges for April over at The sisterhood of crafters where I am lucky enough to be a guest designer for the month.

This week they want to see your projects with an Easter or spring feel to them.

For my card I have used a couple of cute felt bunnies which I got from paperchase for my sons Easter hat. He very kindly shared them with me !!

The rest of my card grew around these bunnies with the papers being chosen to co-ordinate with my embellishments not the other way around ! (incidently the papers are from a DCWV stack - not sure which one, sorry).

The lovely sentiment is from the raindrop echo designs "spring sentiments" set - I just recoloured and resized it in microsoft word. Then added lots of gems for some extra spring bling !

I hope you like my simple spring card and I hope you will play along at The sisterhood of crafters this week x
