Spring Colours Challenge & new Art Impressions!

It's my day to do a feature on the Art Impressions blog, and Ai is launching their new 2017 Easter & Valentines sets:
I am so excited to share the brand new Easter Blessings set (Sku #4886) with you today!  I've been itching to do a pop-up card for a while now, and this seemed to be the perfect stamp set!  

 I used this double sided patterned paper from Doodlebug Designs as my card base - the colours inspired me, and it helped to keep my layers to a minimum, and not make the card too bulky.  Here's the inside:

 I started by cutting an oval shape from some teal cardstock.  I scored it in half, then cut the tall skinny flap to glue the bunny to, and the two narrow flaps which will hold up the fence:
The clouds were really fading into the background, so I added some lime circles behind them which ended up really pulling the colour combo together!

 Here you can see the depth of the pop-ups a bit better:
 Celebrate Spring comes with four main images, and the two sentiments I've used on my card - perfect to use for Easter or just a spring greeting card.  There are two new stamp sets releasing today on the Art Impressions website, check them out!
The new challenge on the Ai blog is Spring Fling!  We want to see your creations with Spring colours:

Happy stamping!!

Karen this is so cool! Love the scene you made and putting the lime circles behind the clouds really made them pop!
