Don't you just love the new Vogue Vases?  I was inspired by one of Betsy's cards and used two of the vases from Cherry Lynn that I have and the Flowers are from PTI Brushed Blooms.  The embossed frame on Stamper's Select White c/s is from Cuttlebug.

I used two older wood block stamps for my card today, the bunny 
and sweet daisies. I colored them in with my Prismacolor Waterclor pencils.  If you see a shadow of the bunny, it is because I was impatient waiting for the water to dry and his cute face was suddenly distorted, so I re-stamped, re-colored and fussy cut him out, popping him on top ~ that was a happy mistake. :-) 
I added his cotton tail and the glittery grass for a bit more dimension.

Stamps/Dies:  PTI Spring Woods
Frame is 2 circles from Spellbinders Nestabilites cut from Black C/S
Embossing Folder is Basket Weave from Darice that I used one of three Tim Holtz Diffuser plates in order to leave the center of my circle smooth enough to stamp the sentiment.
