Shades of Spring

It's my pleasure to welcome you to the weekend! This is Rebecca, and I have a couple of cards to share today.  An extra warm welcome to anyone visiting from the Eyelet Outlet booth at the Pleasanton, CA Scrapbook Expo!

I saw my first Reese's egg and Cadbury bunny commercials on February 15th, and now I'm obsessed with thoughts of spring and Easter candy.  Is that normal?  All the Girl Scout cookie tables aren't helping, either.

But instead of eating a giant Easter basket's worth of sugar, I dove into my washi and brad stash and crafted a little spring sunshine!

A bright mix of washi, brads, dots and paper flowers, all circling a bling strip....not as tasty as a bag full of Starburst jellybeans or some caramel-filled anything, but the work kept me out of a box of Girl Scout cookies, so there's that.

I liked it so much, I tried this second version for an Easter card.

I added some gold Sharpie marker on a chocolate bunny to make them looked wrapped and to match the card sentiment.  I just can't stop myself - now I'm dreaming of Lindt!
