After the strange winter we just had, I am looking forward to Spring, tulips and Easter, For today’s card I went for simplicity. I die cut 3 bunnies using a Memory Box die and three coloured papers. I also cut out two strips of grass using dies from MFT. The sentiment is by Avery Elle. I assembled the card, and for the final touch I added pom pom tails.

This week’s challenge gets you ready for Spring/Easter. I chose a fun sheep digi stamp by Bugaboo called, “Happy Easter to ewe“. Bugaboo has a hold series with this adorable sheep and friends. I coloured the image with Copic markers, layered it on the card stock from my stash and added a computer generated sentiment.
