Spring Swing

Hello fellow crafters!
I hope you are enjoying the lovely Spring weather? I definitely am! It's great that the weather forecast for Easter is sunny and warm as so many Easter Sunday's have been spent indoors due to the rain! We are having a mini drought here in Switzerland and the lakes are pretty low on water - so the rain can come next week when the kids go back to school :)
Today I took my youngest son (12 yrs) to the movies to see "Rio" while DH worked in the garden. That's a fair trade, isn't it? lol! We had a fun time together and we really enjoyed the film. We would both recommend it! :)

My card for today is an Easter card and what better way to showcase Easter than with a bunny! I used one of my new LOTV stamps from the March release called "Spring Swing" and I think he is just adorable!

Card recipe:
Stamp: Lili of the Valley "Spring Swing"
Papers: Nitwit Collections "Above and Beyond" maryfran / Bazzill
Medium: Caran d'Ache with Sansador (bunny) / Copic markers (swing, flowers and grass)
Die cuts: Marianne Design swirl / Magnolia Doohickey Tilda lace / Joy Crafts Butterfly
Embossing: Spellbinders Impressabilities-Flowers
Punches: Tonic flowers
Gems: stash
Ribbon: Meiflower

I am entering this into the following challenges:

LOTV - Challenge #93 "Easter"
Simon Says Stamp - "Emboss it!"
PaperPlay Challenges - Week #16 "Easter"
Creative Inspirations Challenge -  Challenge #57 "Easter"
Cute Card Thursday - Challenge #161 "No text"
ABC DT Challenge - "Easter Card"

Happy Easter everyone!

  4. WoW! It's lovely Becca!Great papers and your coloring looks awesome!
    I also love LOTV stamps and digital papers, since you mentioned them. I have some Nitwitt papers too- don't remember which ones but I ususally take my digital papers from Raspberry road or Websters Pages. I also have one Bearly Mine set which I really like, called Spring Flight. There are some seasonal sets, look on their site and choose whatever suits you best.
    Have a great Easter sweetie!
    Hugs, Iulia
