A Green Spring

Happy Thursday everyone! I am posting a card today for a challenge blog that is new to me, though I have admired it from a distance on occasion through others' posts. The blog is Our Creative Corner and the challenge of "How Green is Your Spring" is to create a paper craft inspired by the photo above.

I selected this clip art image by
Crafty Individuals for the green tones in the mother's dress. The Victorian Pink card base was layered with a mostly green designer paper. Green lace was wrapped around the bottom followed by a light green ribbon by Martha Stewart. The clip art image was layered over a paper doily that was distressed lightly with Peeled Paint Distress Ink. Scroll work corners, compliments of Crafty Individuals, and the sentiment by Art Declassified were also stamped with Peeled Paint DI. I added two German Scrap bunnies in grass and some vintage buttons that are filled with Opal Liquid Pearls by Ranger Products.

Well I must hop like a bunny as I still have so much to do to prepare for the weekend. Have a great day. Best, Yvonne
