Easter came early this year and I am not done creating with bunnies (luckily not all bunny stamps are Easter themed!!) and I am featuring some cute Lavinia hares (Whimsical Hares, Pipin) on today's card. I started out using the "negative" of a circle die then parcially inked inside the circle and created hills using a paper mask. I also used a Lavinia stencil (Feather Leaf) although it's hard to tell. The flowers are Lavinia's Lavender stamp, stamped in Picked Raspberry and Shaded Lilac.

The springtime sentiment is a Penny Black wood mounted stamp (old and no longer available), a favorite for spring. Smile Dream Love is from the Penny Black clear set Dream. Love. Sentiments. I finished off the card with some die cut butterflies using the PB die set Soaring and black enamel dots.

Thanks so much for visiting, I hope you're having a wonderful weekend. 

I plan to share with these challenges:

This little scene is so cute. I love these bunny silhouettes in front of this enchanting wildflower meadow. Great watercolor painting and it looks so beautiful designed in that circle. The sentiment framed with the butterflies is so lovely and so beautifully presented.
