Spring Card!

Have you guys seen Mary's challenge over at CARDZ TV?  She is challenging us to make a card ALL ABOUT SPRING.  She will use to choose a winner who will receive APRIL SHOWERS!  Oh how I'd love to have that cart!!!  Here's the card I created...
Card #32
I actually made this card twice - once with the CRICUT DESIGN STUDIO (first project using that!), and once without it.  For all of you Cricut Design Studio users, how in the world do you print layers for the cuts and have it be the correct proportional size?  I had my default size at 3 1/2".  I clicked on the rabbit.  Then hit shift and clicked on the rabbit tail and ear and both were the default size instead of the proportional size.  HELP!

Card base is Light Blue cardstock (all papers are from Recollections).
Sun is from GIVE A HOOT cut @ 2" (sorry, don't remember which page it's on - I grabbed it from my cut stash).
Trees and grass are 1 cut from CRICUT SAMPLER p. 53 cut @ 4".  I had to trim off the width just a tad.
Rabbit also from CRICUT SAMPLER p. 50 cut @ 3 1/2" and used pop dots to give it some dimension.
Everything was chalked in with Stampin' Up chalks.

Hop over to Mary's CARDZ TV and join in the challenge!  Good luck!!


  1. Very springy card! Great job with the Design Studio. I've only ever used mine a couple times. I mostly use my Gypsy. I'm a new follower. If you get a chance, stop by my blog and if you like it, become a follower of mine. TFS


  2. Love the colors for this card! Looks like the bunny is hopping through the cute!

  3. This is just so cute!! I'm designing mine so haven't even cut it yet. I've got a lot of things going on right now. Trying to get ahead of things! Your card makes me long for Spring. We are having tease weather right now. In the high 60's to low 70's. I know it won't last. The buttercups should shot up and bloom soon. Have an awesome weekend!! :)
