Celebrate Spring!

Although we have had wonderful March weather, Spring is finally here!
This is a fun center step card that celebrates the season.


I actually had had this card base made
and hidden in my stash for quite some time.
As I was rummaging around,
 I came across it and since it was done in "springy" colors,
I made it my starting point for this card.

To start, the three flowers are handmade folds and are finished
with small gems in the center.
The leaves are from PS and the stems are cut free-hand.
I added some negative cuts from a previous project to the card sides
and finished them off with a gemstone also.
That cute little bunny (my favorite) is from WW.
He is popped for added dimension and embossed with the CB folder.
Branches from my MS punch and eggs from the Doodlecharms cart
finish off the bottom.
My outside sentiment come from the Happy Hunting stamp set
I won @ Jeanne's  (Thank you Jeanne!) and I could not wait to use it!
I will add an inside sentiment to make this card personal, and all is done!

TFL!
Welcome Spring!
