Easter adventures

I was preparing for Stamp-a-Stack and went web-surfing through challenge blogs looking for a spring color palette.  I thought I was looking for something with Calypso Coral, but I think the suggestion at Color Throwdown worked even better:
stamp set - Delightful Dozen; ink - Certainly Celery, Pumpkin Pie, Pink Pirouette; card stock - Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Pumpkin Pie, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla; punches - Bird Builder, Extra-Large Oval; Big Shot with Framed Tulips textured embossing folder and Apothecary Accents framelit; Stampin' Sponges

Then I thought it was time to try a bit of watercoloring, but since my skills in that area are still beginner-level, I wanted a small, simple image, which then needed a frame (as suggested at  Less is More) to make it stand out:
stamp set - Everybunny; ink - Crumb Cake, Gumball Green, Pool Party, PrimrosePetals, Raspberry Ripple, Summer Starfruit; Stampin' Write marker - Raspberry Ripple; card stock - Watercolor, Raspberry Ripple, Naturals Ivory; designer series paper - Print Poetry; Big Shot with Ovals Collection and Window Collection framelits; AquaPainter

These cards will be repeated at Stamp-a-Stack Saturday March 23, as well.  The tulips card can be made as a birthday or Mother's Day card if you don't need many Easter cards.  There are two other designs, so we'll be making eight cards for only $10.
