Rain or Shine for PP630

Happy Sunday, friends!
Time for a fun new creative challenge over at The Paper Players
This week, Joanne is hosting our Theme Challenge.
Easter is coming up on April 9th this year, so this challenge is perfectly timed to start getting those card made and ready to mail. I realize not everyone celebrates Easter, so If you don’t maybe use this as inspiration to create some cards to celebrate the spring season. I sure hope you will get crafty and join us over at The Paper Players. We’d love to see what YOU create with this theme!  

*I’ve listed all of the measurements and details for my card below and there is a full supply list at the very end of this post.
Color Combo: 
For my card, I decided to use the the happy bunny from the Playing in the Rain Bundle in the Spring Mini Catalog. I started to pull out the stamps then remembered that the coordinating Rain or Shine Specialty DSP had images that could be cut from the dies. Talk about a time saver, no stamping AND it makes me look like I can color like a pro. Yay!

After I die-cut the bunny, I just used the colors in the image as my guide to put the rest of the card together. I grounded the bunny on the sentiment banner then built up the scene with some grassy accents. Then, as usual, I had to add “just a few more things” like the little kite (isn’t that itty bitty bow adorable?), the sparkly bow and some Iridescent Pearls. I love how it came together and I hope you do too!
