Spring...

... is this week's twist over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday.

For March we've got Nicecrane Designs and  Paper Temptress as our wonderful sponsors, and for a chance to win you need to enter a project. It's Anything Goes every week, but if you use the optional twist you'll earn a second entry in the draw.

To me spring equals Easter, so I used this sweet little rabbit from Nicecrane - you can find it here - and an Easter sentiment from LOTV. I distressed the edges of the image with Walnut DI. I layered it onto a piece of yellow DP, used cream ad green paper and mounted it all onto a card base of kraft.
The flowers are from Storyteller and Nille, I've used cheesecloth, burlap and string from my stash.

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Great Impressions - Spring Celebrations
2) Pile It On - #10 Easter Joys
3) The Corrosive Challenges - #194 Animals
4) Through the Purple Haze - Anything Digital
5) Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Gorgeous texture again and there is that fab use of cheesecloth, all match so well with the image. I like the distress edges too. I have to buy one of those tools x
