Easter's Arrived at Di's Digi Designs

A new challenge starts today over at Di's Digi Designs Challenge Blog, the theme is Spring or Easter.  I've used one of Di's gorgeous Easter images for my card, it's Easter Bunnies Plantpot.
See what I mean, cute, huh?  Deep Ocean Challenge has Cute and Cuddly for their challenge, I'm in for sure!  Crafty CalendarBearly Mine ChallengesCreatalicious ChallengesSweet Stampin' and The Paper Shelter have Easter themes, I'm in there too ;)  Anything Goes Challenge theme is Double Up - my two sweet bunnies are in.
I've used Copics and mainly Prismacolor pencils for this card, I like the soft "hand coloured" look they give... well when I use them they do, at least; a more expert hand may have a different end result!  Craft Your Passion want you to use two and only two colours, I think Pink and Green pretty much cover the palette on this card so I'm in, Divas by Design have Put on Some Pink, Fashionista Challenge have  Make it Pink Stampin' for the Weekend For a Child and Aud Sentiments For a Girl  so I'm in there too.
 Colour Me Copic has Spring Colours and this fabby inspiration picture, so I'm entering there too.
I've used the sketch from Sketch and Stash this time around, it was the perfect layout for a gatefold card, which is what I wanted to make, bonus! The only thing I changed was I put the sentiment (which is a fabby freebie from The Stamp Fairy) on the "second" panel.. hope that's still okay :|
Papertake Weekly has 1 2 3  for their challenge; I've used one image, two colours (or two flourish dies) and three of each flower so I'm entering there.
I've decorated the inside of the card to suit the outside.
I cut the image and sentiment panels using Nestabilities Labels Eight and the flourishes are from Marianne D while the border punch is Martha Stewart's Doily Lace.  Stamptacular Sunday Challenge has To Die For as their theme so I'm entering there.  
The fabulously floral papers are from Kaisercrafts Chanteuse pad, it's so old I don't even know if you can still get it (?) Totally Gorjuss has something old for its' challenge; this paper the pink card and green card from American Crafts, the ribbon and card candy are all from my stash so I'm entering! 
The flowers are from Mulberry Crafts and The Ribbon Girl.  I coloured ivory rosebuds with dark pink Copics to match the ribbon, I added some dark pink headed pins to the arrangement to spread the colour out a bit. 2 Sisters Challenge theme is Flowers for Spring - I'm in!
There are a stack of challenges at the moment with a Spring theme, I'm entering Moving Along With The Times OozakMy Mums Craft Shop and  Addicted to Stamps.   Stamping Sensations has The Great Outdoors; I think this counts so I'm entering there too.
That Craft Place and Cute Card Thursday have Anything Goes challenges running... I KNOW this counts there, so I'm in :-)
Well that's it for today's card.  I hope you like it, I do, which is surprising as it has more embellishments on than I would usually use.
I'll be back tomorrow with my card with my card for the new Here Come The Boys challenge , until then Happy Crafting, Donna
