Seeds of Spring

I made this card for the color challenge on Split Coast to use Kiwi Kiss, Pink Pashion and Chocolate Chip. I totally cased this adorable bunny and layout from Heather on her blog Pine Feather.I changed the colors and did the ribbon and sentiment differently but the basic layout and clever punched circle and ovals bunny are all Heather's. Thank you Heather for the great inspiration!

My card also covers this weeks Doubledog Dare challenge I do with some friends. Joanne was the hostess this week and her challenge was to make a card that screamed spring and also had seeds on it (!?!?). You will notice (I hope!) the 3 small black sunflower seeds growing out of the side of my sentiment 'flower'.

It took me more time to figure out how to get these seeds worked into the design than it did to make the whole rest of the card! But I finally figured out a way to place them that looked like they should be there (well sort of I guess!)

We'd love to have you join us in this Doubledog Dare Challenge - just post your card on your SCS gallery and use the keyword DDC so we can come check out your card. You can see all the Doubledog Dare cards here. You can see all the members of the DDC team on my side bar.

Julia, that is so cute! I totally didn't notice the seeds because they looked so natural on the card. How totally fun! If I have time, I'll try to play this week.
