Flower Power

Hi there and Happy Victoria Day weekend to all our Canadian families and friends!  Challenge #17 at Sundays with Crissy is all about FLOWERS.  I've made a flower pot pocket card featuring Crissy's adorable digi, Bunny with Flowers.  Here's an outside view of the card. 
Here's a view of the outside of the card plus taaadaaa the insert with the Bunny digi.  This bunny is so versatile and can be used for soooo many occasions.  The insert alone could also be used as a bookmark.  My girls have birthday parties coming up and some of their friends like reading books so this would be perfect.  Of course this could also be a 'just because' card too and I love that I can insert something extra into the pot.
Tutorial for the flower pot pocket card is HERE.  Flowers are Primas, leaves were made with a Magnolia Doohickey die, scalloped edge with an SU border punch, butterflies with a MS punch, Spellbinder oval dies for the sentiment and the pearl brads+ribbon+rhinestones are from my stash.  Tim Holtz Tea Dye DI was used to sponge the edges of the papers, flowers, leaves and background for the bunny.  I coloured with Copics (C00, C1, C3, C5, YG11, YG05, YG07, YG17, Y11, Y13, Y15, Y17, B0000, B00, B01, B05, R01, R02, R05, R08, R15, R27, R20, RV00, R83, R85).
I'm entering this into the following:

Sooooo what are you waiting for!  Add some flowers to your projects and then pop on over to THIS BLOG POST to enter your creation by May 31st!
