Spring challenge card

Woohoo it's Friday! and I don't know why I'm so excited because I am working Saturday.  Oh well, someone has to do it. 

I must say it sure doesn't feel like spring weather lately.  We were so spoiled last week with 70-80 degree weather and this week it plummeted down to the 40's - 50's. But really, I guess this is our normal temps for this time of year. With our challenge this week being spring/easter theme, it was kind of hard to get into the mood.  But I managed.

I pulled out an image I bought last year to use and never got around to it.  This is Izzie is a bunny. I just love these Izzie images - sure wish Emily would come out with some more - hint, hint!

Is she adorable or what?  I stamped her on bella's bestest paper and coloured using  copics and pencils.
DP is from Simple Stories called Fabulous.  I used an oval and oval scallop s/binder die as well as a Martha Stewart eyelet border punch.

Finished her off with some stitching, lots of glitter and a pretty pink silk bow (I've been hoarding this ribbon for quite some time) - thought this card was deserving of it.

Be sure to stop over at Bloggabella to check out what the other babes and sistahs did this week. Leave a comment for a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

Our next week challenge is another sketch, and next week is April already, can you believe that? Where did the last 3 months go?  If you would like to play along next week, you can either email Emily your card by thursday night or upload your card on SCS using the keyword BELLARIFFIC1312.  By playing along you have a chance to win $20 in bella bucks, so come on, get inky and get creative this weekend.
Here is your next weeks sketch - thanks Ebru!!!

 Thanks for coming by today, have a wonderful weekend!

Oh, she is sooooo adorable! Pretty paper and love that sprinkling of glitter. I can see why you might hoard that gorgeous ribbon, but you did right bringing it out for Izzie!
