Color Q Challenge 81 + Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger

When perusing the challenges this week, I knew right away that these two would be a perfect match!
The Color Q Challenge #81 draws inspiration from these adorable little knit bunnies.  They look so cuddly and come in a great variety of spring colors.





















The Moxie Fab World Tuesday Trigger reminded me of the colors of bunnies.  I was thinking Old Olive leaves, soft pink blooms, and a bit of sunshine added in with So Saffron.  I could also envision a Soft Sky background behind this beautiful boquet.













Just this week I picked up this fun leaves on a branch die from Sizzix.  I wasn't even looking for dies, but at 40% off at J's I figured I might as well go down that aisle.  This little die jumped out at me as perfect for Spring projects and at sale price it was just over $4.  What a steal!

I wanted to base my card around the leaves and a bouquet of sorts seemed to be the right idea.  It was really easy to arrange them around one of the fun doily die cuts from PTI.  Hand-rolling my own flowers has been a challenge, but I think I'm starting to get the hang of it.  What do you think? :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!
