My Sheri CRAFTS - Challenge #81 Spring Pastels

According to the calendar Spring won't be here until next month. I don't know where you live, but here in Missouri we've had 80 degree weather all week. It was really easy to come up with a card for this challenge. We would love for you to create an Easter card or project using the gorgeous pastel colors of Spring!

Now, I have a bit of trouble using pastel colors so I tried several different color combinations on my card before I was happy. I also used several different embossing folders, but it was easy for me to pick the image I wanted to use. I just love this image from The Stamping Boutique "Boy Rabbit in Egg." I colored the image with my Copics and then triple mounted. I think adding the black helped. I used some white baker's twine and colored it with the same markers I used on my image and added a little bling. All papers and bellies are CTMH. Hope you enjoy this little cutie. So jump on over to My Sheri Crafts and check out what the Design Team has created and submit your project. You could be our next guest designer! The DT loves to give love to all our participants, so please help us by turning off word verification.
