For today's card, I added in the challenge of using Spring colors.  I didn't want to go the traditional route with pinks and yellows, so I decided to go with greens and a chocolate colored bunny.  

I absolutely LOVE this new bunny image.  It is so realistic looking.  I stamped it in brown Versafine ink and then sponged it with some brown Pan Pastel chalk.  It was super-easy, and I really liked the finished look.  I will be teaching a "Bunny" class at Angela's Happy Stamper, and this is definitely going to be one of the cards.

Items used:
 Rabbit Face G16179
