Refresh, Renew, Rejoice

Hello Again,

For today I am playing along with Freshly Made Sketches and Color Throwdown. For these challenges I will be featuring an Easter card, enjoy!

Circles is the theme for this card. This set from Papertrey Ink
spawned the whole design.
The dry embossed dots brings in some texture.
Stitched bunny circles were drawn in brown to match the sentiment.
I think it brings it all together. 
Challenges Entered:
Color Throwdown: ctd381
Freshly Made Sketches: FMS225

   

Oh Easter! I picture cute little girls in their new Sunday dresses plucking eggs out of a lush green lawn. Little boys dressed in their best doing the exact same thing. The thing is the weather doesn't always cooperate with this perfect picture. Easter in Michigan can be cold, dark, rainy and even snowy. Those poor kiddos need to put on their winter coats and boots to bear Winters last hold. Most are cold and some crying (rightfully so). So you know what? This Easter when it is cold and dank outside I will have to put on my rose colored glasses and wonder 'Where are those lush lawns?'.

Okay for real this is my last post for the day. I do hope you enjoy having me clutter up your inbox with posts.. I just hope you enjoyed your stay and I do appreciate you stopping by. Take care.

All the Best,
Shawna

My MIL still have us hiding the easter eggs for the boys in the garden, Shawna (and they will be 17 and 15 this year!!!!) She has already bought the eggs and can't wait for Easter to come!!!! But I have to say it's always fun hunting for the eggs!!!!
Your card is so sweet with the little bunnies and the beautifully stamped circles!!! Love the soft colours!!!!
