Inspired By: Easter

Here's some inspiration:

I used the adorable "Tulip Bunny" from Sweet Stamps for this card.

Tutu Pink was used to add shimmer to the flower.

And Ice Blue to add shimmer to the ribbon!



 I used a mixture of several colors as background on my Bold Butterfly Large 627, and Curly Butterfly 437 from Sweet Stamps
I even used a little on the greenery I made with a die cut from Cheery Lynn that can be purchased at Sweet Stamps.
