Twisted Tuesday Challenge Blog

Good Morning Ladies,
This weather has been wonderful. I am so enjoying it!
I was surf around the net on Tuesday and came across a brand new challenge blog. I came upon a new  Twisted Tuesday Challenge Blog. They are having a design team call. So I grabbed my stamps, paper, dies, and supplies and created a card.
Here is the link to the blog http://twistedtuesdaychallenges.blogspot.com/2012/03/welcome-and-design-team-call.html
The requirements for the project are
The Challenge: Make your project with Pastel/Spring colors but incorporate black somewhere on your creation.

The Twist:  Your creation must be square (no standard size A2 cards).
Here is my take on the project....
 I started with a 6 inch by 6 inch square card. My spring is the bunnies. This image is from Art Gone Wild. I stamped the bunny couple in black archival ink on bristol board. The image is colorized with Prisma Pencil and Gamsol. I added stickles for the tails. All papers are from a Debbie Mum Noah's Ark stack. A Martha Stewart punch around the page set was used to create the border on the yellow mat. The boy bunny's bow tie is black to help me tie the color black in. Under the yellow mat I added a black mat so just some peeks through. The green layer and the bunny image was cut using a spellbinder die set. The corner flourish is cut from a Cheery Lynn die. The three flowers at the top are handmade by yours truly. I added a pearl spray to top this card off.

Happy Scraps,
