3CTC8, Springtime Friends

I made this card for Kerry's Thursday Challenge, 3CTC8. These are definitely not my usual colors of choice. Always Artichoke, So Saffron and Rose Red are very pretty together just a bit hard to work with wanting to color with blues and purples, my colors of comfort.

It is finally beginning to look and sound like Spring here in New England. This bunny didn't exactly remind me of an Easter bunny so I decided on a Springtime bunny. I hope we see some real ones hopping around here soon! I bought a cloud maker template a short time ago and I love the way the sky comes out using it. I colored the grasses and the flower to match the color challenge but I really like bunnies to be gray or brown and I always color my birds blue. I didn't have any ribbon to match so I ran white ribbon across my ink pad so it would match the Always Artichoke DP. A trick that Kerry taught me many years ago.

Stamps: SU and Hero Arts
CS: SU Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Rose Red and DP SU 6x6 pack
Ink: SU Always Artichoke, So Saffron, Rose Red, Memento Black and Copics
Accessories: Nesties, Michael's Ribbon, Hero Arts Rhinestones and Dew Drops

Thanks for stopping by to see what I created.
Please come again soon,

Oh, that's so cute! What a beautiful card. I love that color combo (it's one of my comfort combos). That bunny is so cute and it looks like a spring bunny to me too.
