Whimsie Doodles "Spring Fling" Challenge

Whimsie Doodles is having a fun challenge this month!  It's called Spring Fling!  So get your creative juices flowing and create something that reminds you of spring.

It could be flowers, spring colors, Easter, Bunnies, etc.

I went with an Easter card for this challenge.  You can't think of Spring without thinking of bunnies right?  :)

Here is my GDT card for this challenge:

I used the adorable image from Whimsie Doodles called Egg Painting.  You can get him here.

I wove strips of paper together to create the background, then added a doily from MFT Die-namics Dies.  On the doily I put grass using a Martha Stewart grass border punch.  Made a blue sky using Distress Ink - broken china, and added clouds using MFT Die-namics cloud die. A little faux stitching, then some bling.  Oh yes, got to have some bling.  LOL  Then bunny was added with some pop dots to make him stand off the card a bit.

So head over to Whimsie Doodles and enter their monthly challenge today!
