Heart 2 Heart Spring Challenge

I had a few minutes today before I had to head off to work, so I thought that I would make a card to enter in to the Heart 2 Heart Blog Challenge this week.  Heart 2 Heart is a weekly blog challenge that features Close To My Heart products.  This week's challenge is to create an Easter or Spring themed card.

One of my favorite stamp sets has always been "Bunny Love."  It is retired now, but the bunnies remain just as cute.  For fun, I made a diamond pop up card that really highlighted one of the little guys.
I used a sheet of pattern paper from "Lucy," one of the fun new paper packets.  The back trim and larger mat is done in Sweet Leaf and the small highlight mat is Blush.
This picture shows the folding mechanism behind the pop up diamond.
And, this is the cute little bunny colored with my Copics. 

It is a beautiful day here in Philly so I am not too happy about having to go o work.  With Spring here, it is time to begin working in my garden.  It is also time to make some fun, brightly colored cards!  For more inspiration featuring CTMH products, hop on over to the Heart 2 Heart Challenge blog.  For Now, Happy Crafting!

Cindy -

I can never give up stamps when they retire either - if I loved them enough to buy them then they stay in my collection forever! Wonderful use of this bunny set - it really pops off the diamond accent.

Send some of your Spring weather to the other side of the country for me - Seattle is gray and rainy today! Thanks for sharing your art with us at Heart2Heart Challenges!

Great card! I've not seen that one before either. I'm wondering what it's called (the type of card).
