Has spring sprung???

When I saw Taylor's Cupcake Challenge this week I decided it would be perfect for another Easter card (that & the Easter DS paper was still on my desk!!)

The image is from Sweet Springs and is stamped with Memento's ink and coloured with Lyras & Prismacolor using mineral spirits. This is my first attempt with the prismacolor and I must say I did like having the bold colours to work with.

The image is cut with nesties and mounted on SU's Tempting Turquoise. The cb is So Saffron layered with Tempting Turquoise and Regal Rose. The DS paper is from Creative Imagination. I added a Heidi Swap ghost flower with an SU button. I added a bella bonbon to the top of the cupcake; the 5mm ones are a perfect fit. For the bunnies eye I used a pink TwinkleTaylors Tiny

I hope spring has sprung where you are; we are suppose to get more snow tonight; 4" of snow tonight in the Calgary and along the foothills (of the Rocky's) 12" - sadly we live closer to the foothills then I would like (today!!) Although I love my view of the Rocky's I don't LOVE the extra snow it means - at least hubby is in town for this snow fall!!

Thanks for stopping by & have a great day

Cute Dana. I like all the little extras - the Bella bonbon, the little Twinkle for the bunny eye and LOVE the ghost flower! I like the Prismas better too - much brighter colours!
