Spring Card for Stamp with Fun

Good morning everyone! My goodness, we had a major, major snowstorm/blizzard in Wisconsin last night and it's still snowing and blowing today!!!!! This was the worst storm of the winter..some drifts are at least 3' or more!!! Hubby is going to be busy today.
I made today's card for Stamp with Fun which simply requires a spring card! Well, since I'm making Easter cards, this card fit the bill. Not quite sure I really like this card....something about it bothers me, but I can't quite put my finger on it!
Has that ever happened to anyone???? It happens a lot to me!!!!
The image is Tilda with Hanging Rabbit, available at Diana's Magnolia-licious Store.
She was colored with copics. The raffia was a gift from my dear friend, Jacque.
The papers are Pion Design.
Thank you for visiting my blog. I really appreciate all your support!

  5. Very pretty! Ugghh what weather you are having. It's been in the 70's here, but I hear it thundering, and our temps are supposed to drop today, and keep dropping. Tired of winter!!! Looks like storms for us.

  7. Christina, what a cute and bright Easter card. Perfect for chasing away the blizzard. Sorry, that I have to tell you that more is on the way. The next one is moving through today and more starting tomorrow through Monday. So be prepared for next week.

    What is Tilda doing to that poor "wabbit"!!! I love the embellishments and the soft colors you used for Tilda.

  8. You have made a wonderful card!
    Hugs Nicolet

  9. What an amazing card. Absolutely gorgeous. I love your colouring of the sweet Magnolia stamp. Thank you for sharing

  10. Yikes no more snow!!! Gee winter doesn't want to give up where you live. I did see daffodils growing along the road here in SW PA. Oh your card is great!!! I love your DP and Tilda with that rabbit is DARLING!! Great Job as ALWAYS!! Hugs, Cathy-Lynn

  11. Sorry to hear you are getting snow still ! What a cute little card and you do need some spring LOL hope it warms up for you pretty soon !

  12. Your card is adorable, Christina! I really don't understand what bothers you. This stamp is gorgeous and I loooove that cute rabbit in the background, the DP are perfect for Easter and the bunch of flowers is spectacular- especially because them being different as structure.
    I usually put aside all the embellies/flowers/ribbons/etc which would fit as pattern/color/style my card and then I choose from. There's the true labour:))So I know what you mean:)
    Have a great day and keep safe!
    Hugs, Iulia

  15. I am so sorry about all the snow Christina. Come this time of year we are ready for it all to be over - not still snowing like mad. This has a real artsy feel to it. (that's a compliment)I love your flower arrangement especially with the heart button in the middle of your bow. Wow! do I see another little gingham bow? Wonderful details!
