Contest Kick -Off!!

Have you seen the new out there? Diana is having an Easter-Spring Extravaganza Contest with REALLY BIG prizes!! You have lots of time to create up to THREE projects for entry to win! Please visit the link above on our Design Team blog for all the details!Despite the fact that we could get up to 6 inches of snow today I am SO into spring papercrafting projects! ETA: I don't mean to whine about a little snow. I'm so sorry for the people in Japan and am hoping and praying for those in Hawaii and in the Pacific. I've used an image from the few images that were released in the Butterfly Dreams collection. This is #252 TILDA WITH HANGING RABBIT. I do love bunnies and have for many, many years! I have a stuffed one that I got for Easter as a child. The more realistic looking ones are my favorites! I like the white ones but am more partial to the brown or multicolored ones so I had to color Tilda's bunny!
I just wish I'd finished my card in time to enter! This week looks like another great sketch!
My paper is from Stampin' Up-Springtime from the current mini catalog. I love that it has a 'kraft' color to it, called Crumb cake by SU. My die cut pieces are from some February releases by Papertrey Ink.
I'm pretty happy with this card except for her hair. I just could not get it the way I wanted! Anybody else have trouble with get the hair consistently right? I think I need to go back to my basic colors and retrain myself!
Anyway, thanks for visiting! I'm so glad you did and don't forget to check out Diana's contest!! You'll be glad you did!
Have a wonderful day!!
