Oldie but a Goodie Challenge - Spring has Sprung!

This fortnight's Oldie but a Goodie Challenge theme was chosen by me...and (rather optimistically) I picked:

'Spring has Sprung'

I've used an old stamp that always makes me think of spring...its 'Bunny Friends' by Penny Black...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The papers are from the 'My Girl' pad by American Crafts...I distressed the edges a little, then added some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The flowers are a mixture of Prima, Wild Orchid Crafts and Poppicrafts, and are held in place by some BasicGrey brads.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, please pop over to the Oldie but a Goodie Challenge.
