I have a springy card to share with you today - I know it's wishful thinking, but a girl can dream, can't she?! I love this little bunny from the Garden Friends stamp set - and she was perfect to accessorize with the Flower Soft. This will actually be my last post as a designer for Flower Soft. I've really enjoyed being on the team, and you know I will keep adding those sprinkles to my projects!

Love the way you used the colours of the flowers in the paper to accent the flowers on the hat & the little bit of fluff for the bunny's tail is just fun. The aqua & orange really help to give added pizazz to the brightness of your Flower Soft flowers.
