Monday Morning Challenge No. 4 - Think Spring

Happy Monday!
Can you believe it's already the last week of February?! Spring is right around the corner :-)

Last Monday of the month,  also means it's time for a new Monday Morning challenge! But before I get to the new challenge, it's time to announce the winner of the last challenge. chose No. 50, that is
Maggie S.

Congratulations, Maggie! You won the 2 sheets of stickeroos. Please email me your complete mailing address at ellibelle_blog at yahoo dot com, so I can get them mailed out to you.

This time the challenge topic I have chosen is
Think Spring

Think springtime animals, birds, bugs, flowers, spring trees...lots of possibilities here - whatever makes you think of spring goes!  I hope you'll play along! 

I decided to ink up the cute stamp Bunny Friends by Penny Black, available in my Etsy Stamp Shop Timeless Stamp.

It's been colored using copic marker. A simple sketch has been used. Sentiment is an old one from Stampin' Up. I embellished with a couple punched out butterflies and some sticky rhinestones.

 Product List:
Bunny Friends, Gifts of Spring (sentiment)
memento black ink, copics for coloring
xpress blending card, SU card stock
washi tape, designer paper from stash
MS butterfly punch, sticky rhinestones, stickles glitter

 I'd also like to play along in a few challenges:
Sister Act Card Challenge -  Anything Goes
Simply Create Too - Anything Goes
Aud Sentiments Challenge - Use A Spring Or Easter Sentiment
Throwback Thursdays -  Anything Green

And here is this month's prize.
A starter set of Faber Castell Polychromos pencils (my favorite brand of colored pencils - I own the 120 count). You can easily extend your collection of these, as they are available for purchase as single pencils in every color. 
Happy Stamping and Good Luck!!
