Carrots Anyone?

As I work today in my craft room moving various seasonal things in and out of storage I decided to take a break and put together this Easter card.  
Several of my crafting buddies and I took a road trip yesterday to the Des Moines area and picked up the carrot paper just to go with this stamp.
This image is a Northwoods Rubber Stamp - Carrot Tops and Bunny.  It always makes me smile when I see this Bunny and only get to use the stamp such a small time during the Easter season.
The card is very basic with simple construction of layering.  I did use some scrap paper, but have listed the name of paper for carrot paper.

Copic: YR61,YR65,YR68,YG11,YG13,YG17,E51,E53,E55,R01,W1
Spellbinders: Long Classic Scalloped Rectangles Large
EK Success Pennant Punch and Sizzix Banners 2 Die
Carrot Paper: doodlebug designs - Flowerbox
Sentiment: #11029mc Carrot Bunny (HoneyPop-Inky Antics)
Misc.: Twine and gems

Hope you enjoy!
Have a great week, we are slated for more snow here in the Midwest.

Ribbon Stash

Today I want to share a quick card that I made with scrap ribbon.  I tend to keep every little piece of everything and recently decided that enough was enough.  I looked at my container that holds my small scrap ribbon and if I couldn't make a nice bow I was getting rid of it.  Looking at the pile of ribbon, I decided to make a card.  Taking an A2 card base, I ran it through my trusty Xyron machine and now having a totally adhesive card front I applied the ribbon in a diagonal design.  With sharp scissor I trimmed the ribbon around the card.  Adding several layered paper flowers, a small brad in the center and a sentiment tag the card is complete.

I hope you enjoyed today's post.
