First Easter Card

Hello my  friends! I've been making 3 cards over the week-end as my hubby wanted to spend some quality time with his son while I was expected to clean up the rooms. So this is me "cleaning":)
My first card is for the weekly Digital Pencil Challenge. This time Cathy came up with a lovely sketch I tried not to deviate from. I'm not very good at following sketches, as I always seem to have some extra panel or embellies which I HAVE TO put somewhere:)). I really wanted to make a simple image-sketch card. When I looked at my card when it was all assembled, gosh, I only saw green in front of my eyes... literally... ha ha. Too much green? Who cares? Here it's snowing again! And when I thought spring was about to come....

So, having the "springtime" yearning as an excuse for my too greenish card I'm going to share it with you:

I've used this lovely brand new image called Easter Bunny. I just love it! One can notice the candor and "delicacy" only kids have when holding pets. I couldn't hold a bunny like that. But when I once took my little one to see a sweet little rabbit he nearly strangled it because of too much love:)

The ingredients for this card are:

Stamp; Mo Manning - Easter Bunny
Medium: Promarkers
DP: Cosmo Cricket (digital), distressed and machine-stitched
Flowers: Wild Orchid Crafts
Sentiment: computer generated ( the Romanian for "Happy Easter!")
Misc.: ribbon, beads from stash, nestie for the leaves, paper doily

I also found some challenges for this card:

Digital Pencil Too - sketch from Cathy
Card Cupids - buttons or ribbons
I Did It Creations - Anything Goes
One Stitch At A Time - Anything but square (my card is rectangular)
Stampin' Sisters in Christ - Use Green ( I'm pretty sure I've used some:))
Totally Papercrafts - use a digi
Pile it on - childhood dreams
Lexi's Creations – flowers
Creative Cottage - fabulous florals
Gingerloft  - our furry friends
Cute Card Thursday - Shiny, Happy Cards
Res Q - A Happy, Bright card
My Sheri Crafts – Girly
Thrilling Thursday - Show Us What You Got (anything goes)

Thank you so much for visiting! I'm off to do some cleaning:)

Hugs, Iulia

Hello Iulia,
I think you may have entered this really pretty card into our challenge is error. "Less is More" is a challenge solely for Clean and Simple cards, please see the guidelines in our sidebar for details.
Also, we only allow a maximum of five challenges to be combined.
It's a shame, as yours is a lovely card, but ineligible for our challenge.
I do hope you'll return at another time with a simple CAS card!

You made an easter, spring happy card. I love the colors green. It's give the idea that spring is comming soon. And Oh we want that. Little snowflakes where falling here also yesterday. I also saw the image at mo's, and felled in love with it.
You did again a very good job coloring.
Good luck with the challenges.
Hugs Marianne.
