Fairy Fun Fridays Challenge -Oh So Spring #49

Yay it's Friday and time for a new challenge at "Fairy Fun Fridays"!! Hope everyone has been having a wonderful Spring vacation...ours has been a bit wet and soggy...lol. And since it is officially Spring, we would like to see all your Spring themed cards! 

Oh So Spring #49


Isn't Roberta's bunny just the cutest?!! The image I used is called "Daffodil For You" and can be found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop here!

And I just got some new lovely daffodil flowers from WOC and thought they went just perfectly with this sweet image!


I've had these beautiful butterfly charms forever and have been using them for charms in my shop and I had 1 more left...and I thought is would so pretty hanging above the bunny!


The sentiment I created myself and if anyone is interested in snagging it up, I will have different variations of it available on my blog sometime next week!


The inside!


CARD INGREDIENTS:
PAPERS: Textured cardstock in daffodil yellow and glittery textured cardstock in cool grey all from "DCWV". Design paper is from "Recollections" and "KiMemories".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is a digi stamp and is from "Prairie Fairy Designs" and the sentiment is my own computer generated text.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. Broken China Distress Ink from "Tim Holtz" used to sponge around the edges of the image and sentiment.
EMBELLISHMENTS: Beige satin ribbon, white acrylic pearls, and all flowers are from "Wild Orchid Crafts (WOC)"
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Spellbinders" machine w/ label 2 dies, and scalloped border punch from "Fiskars".
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with beige color thread. Image and sentiment were 3-D foam mounted. "Stickles" glitter glue was added to the image for even more sparkle.
