ATS Wednesday Challenge - My First!

Happy Aloha Friday, fellow crafters!  I just got my new stamps from CC (Rubber) Designs and thought it would be fun to play in their Wednesday Sketch Challenge and then I would have to ink up my new stamps...I usually just store them for later LOL! I decided to use Bunny Lucy and here she is:
My card base is 5.5" x 5.5" from PTI white cardstock.  Then I used a mat piece cut from SU! Melon Mambo cs, followed by Jillibean's Egg Drop Soup DP. The side panel with the bunnies (which are hidden!) is from 3 Bugs In a Rug. I inked up Bunny Lucy with Memento tuxedo black and stamped on PTI white cs and colored her with Copics (R85, 83, 81, 00, and E35, 33, 31, 51).  I also added some Cotton Candy Stickles to part of her outfit.  The sentiment is from CC Designs (Amy R's Spring Logos).  The "I (heart) Eggs" sentiment is from Studio G.  I die-cut an egg shape from a SB Nested Eggs die, using Melon Mambo cs. This is the inside of the card:
I thought the bunny design is so cute and just had to put a piece inside of the card since the one I cut for the panel on the front is obscured by the egg shaped mat piece and ribbon.  I used the same Jillibean DP on the jotting area with, again, a die-cut egg shape.  Below is the sketch from All That Scraps' challenge:
I'm also joining the following challenges:
Paper Play Challenge - Easter Theme
Cute Card Thursday - Happy Easter

Thank you for stopping by today and I wish you all a very fun-filled weekend.  Now I've got to clean up the mess I made to make this card LOL!
Warm Aloha Hugs,

ROSE SCENT TILDA For Just Magnolia Challenge #147

Hello fellow crafters!  Hope everything is going great with you.  The rains have finally stopped, and here in Hawaii we have the normal blue skies and sunshine.  My heart goes out to those that sustained damage to their homes and property from torrential rains and flooding, and those on the Mainland U.S. who also may have weathered tornadoes and loss of loved ones.  My heart and prayers go out to all of you.
I have a quick post today and won't keep you with my blabbering. I finally finished a card for the Just Magnolia & hAnglar and stAnglar challenge that is asking for something "Blue and White" and like my last post, I had to work with a limited amount of blue Copic markers.  Oh well. . .so without further ado, here is a simple card I came up with using Rose Scented Tilda from the "Sweet Crazy Love Collection" that you can get from Diana's Magnolia-licious online store (just click on the icon on my sidebar). I apologize for the glare.  No matter how many times I tried, because of the sheen on the cardstock, I wasn't able to avoid the glare.

Basically, my card is a 6"x6" base, followed by Bazzill bling CS (blue) and then a white mat, and another Bazzill bling piece that I embossed with a Lifestyle "Floral" embossing folder and I chose the one with roses.  It comes two in a pack.  I cut a white mat piece with SB Labels 15 and distressed with "blue silk" dye ink from Paris Trunk.  On top of that I die-cut another piece from Magnolia's "Somebunny Loves You - Turquoise Rose" DPs that I've had for a while.  The sentiment is from Stampin' Up. I added some pretty white lace trim on the bottom and added some blue rhinestone bling to each petal.  Both Tilda and the sentiment are popped up with foam tape for dimension.  That's it as the rest is just stuff from my stash.
I hope the Spring weather is brightening your day.  Stay healthy, be safe, and bask in the sun.  Thank you for your previous encouraging comments as they truly brightened my day, rain or shine!
Warm Aloha Hugs,
