Springtime with Bo Bunny and Acetate

Hello! :)

More snow? Really? I am seriously done with this cold weather and am so looking forward to Springtime with all it's vibrant blooms! But since the weather doesn't seem to be co-operating, I settled for the next best thing--a vibrant colorful Bo Bunny card!

So far this is probably my favorite paper line of theirs. I just love the colors they've used together and all the pretty flower flourishes. It's so hard for me to cut up their papers, but there's no other way to turn them into cards.

I've used the Bo Bunny flowers that go with this paper. The buttons, ribbons and pearls are from my stash. I put the acetate through my Cuttlebug to get that nice textured look.

This is the inside. I love the little pearls on the flourish. I hope I left enough room to write something.

I decided that I will sign all my cards from now on. I haven't always done that.
Here's another look at the finished card.

I actually did two cards using this paper. Here's the second card I made

I cuttlebugged the acetate here too....just love that look. I added some black pearls here and there, and some buttons and ribbon from my stash. Note the fluffy edge...

I love feathers, and I just happened to have a bag of them around. More flowers from the Bo Bunny set, and I used black stickles for the flower centers.

While I was at it, I took some other stickles and decorated some of the inside. I hope you can see it better in this close up.

You could easily put this card on its side and it still looks right.
