Spring has Sprung Virtual Stamp Night Mini!

I am a hostess tonight for the Virtual Stamp Night (VSN) Mini at Splitcoaststampers!  The theme this year is "Spring has Sprung".  My challenge is entitled, "All the Twists and Turns of Spring".  The word "sprung" popped out at me, and made me think of all of the twists and turns of spring in upstate New York....warm days, cold days, rain, wind, flowers, and SNOW!  So how to incorporate all of those twists into a card-making challenge?  Use FLOURISHES on your card!

I used the sweet bunny and sentiment from L'il Buddies and the flourish from Flourishes-Scallops and Dots, both from Waltzingmouse Stamps.  Stamped over Miss Bunny with the retired SU Linen Background and shaded her with Copics.  Tucked a spring bloom behind her big ole' ear :)  My Spring Moss hill is covered with flourishes from the D'Vine Swirls Cuttlebug embossing folder!

You can play along, too!  One challenge is posted on the hour from 6:00 through 10:00 EST in the Virtual Stamp Night Forum seen HERE.  This mini leads up to the BIG Virtual Stamp Night weekend Friday, March 9 through Saturday, March 10!

Stamps:  L'il Buddies and Flourishes-Scallops and Dots, both Waltzingmouse Stamps, retired Linen Background, Stampin Up
Paper:  Papertrey Ink White and Spring Moss
Ink:  Memento Tuxedo Black, Tim Holtz Tumbled Glass Distress ink, VersaColor Umber, Copic markers
