Back from a wk in Georgia. Hubby was on business in Duluth near Atlanta and I went along with him. He worked nights but when he was not sleeping/resting we enjoyed: Zoo Atlanta, company & dinner at Golden Seven Chinese/Thai/Vietnamese restaurant (this place had an incredible menu of tasty food) with friend Susan of Expression Avenue, town of Roswell (where I bought some wonderful crafty things like the stamp set used in this creation), Old Mill in Roswell, Georgia Aquarium and Stone Mountain. Highlight of the trip was seeing & photographing the Twin Panda Cubs at Zoo Atlanta. The Twin Panda Cub girls, Mei Lin & Mei Huan, were born Jul last yr 2013.

Created this Spring/Easter card using:
1. Impression Obsession stamp set & die
2. scissors to fussy cut out the basket & eggs
3. cutting tool on basket
4. Stamp N Plus Stardust chalk on the eggs
5. scissors to fringe the basket grass
6. brads
7. buttons
8. ribbon
9. wiggle eyes on the bunnies

One of the cute Twin Panda Cubs at Zoo Atlanta.

  7. What a wonderful Spring-themed card! It's currently snowing in my neck of the woods, but I love the thought of Easter on its way! You did a great job with the color palette and I really like how you added such detail to the basket and the bunnies. Their googly eyes are so cute! I also love the grass you added to the basket. The transparent ribbon was a fantastic way to interpret our theme. Thanks so much for joining us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
