Blog Award Thanks and Spring Card for Three Challenges

Happy April 15th - tax day - bloggers! I hope you are all having a wonderful Friday. I have been so busy the last couple of weeks, I didn't get a chance to thank two very talented crafters -  Tami at Scrappin Rabbit Designs and The Crafting Misfit - for awarding me the Versatile Blogger award. Thank you both so much...I am so honored and appreciative! I hope everyone will stop by both of their blogs to see their amazing talent!

I have a card to enter into a few challenges today. For the background, I used double-sided paper from K & Co's Que Sera Sera stack, and used a border punch from EK Success. The flying bunny was cut from the Give a Hoot cart (he was originally holding a balloon that I cut off), using Core Couture paper in stiletto for the shadow and runway for the body. I had some cool holographic paper that I got from Wal-Mart a while ago, and I used it for the tummy. It really glitters!
I used green gems for his eyes and a pearl for the nose. The umbrella was cut from Forever Young and I ran it through the Cuttlebug with a Sizzex swirls folder. Papers from Core'dinations Roy G Biv were used for the background mat and I ran the top sheet through the Cuttlebug with an old Fiskars embossing sheet. I sanded the raindrops and then spritzed it with Sheer Shimmer from Tsukineko. The stamped sentiment reads "fly away home". A ribbon from Michaels and light green gems in a raindrop shape finish the card.

I am entering it into the following challenges:
  1. Fantabulous Cricut Challenge Blog - Spring Fling Cricut Crawl - use the colors pink, green and yellow and include a Cricut cut;
  2. Celebrate the Occasion - Challenge #9 - Easter or Spring project using a punch;
  3. Whimsical Wednesday - Challenge #2 -  Spring card or project with April Showers Bring May Flowers theme, using an umbrella, rain boots, flowers or rain drops.
Thanks for looking and thanks again Tami and The Crafting Misfit! Happy TGIF :)
