Welcome Spring!

Well as usual, spring here has been swinging from warm(ish) sunny days to cold rainy ones.This year, in addition to vinyl bunnies that hop along the pillars and walls at my house I made this fun "welcome spring" project.  I was inspired by the recent Cricut Circle Blog Challenge to create this banner, and even though I didn't make the deadline but it was fun!  I saw a ribbon flower similar to this in the recent Scrapbook Trends project book and wanted to incorporate it on this project. Hope fully I can keep this for next spring as well!

 The banner was created with a cut from Birthday Bash Cricut cartridge and layered with a letter in frame cut from A Child's Year Cartridge. I  added a few flourishes and flowers cut from the Elegant Cakes cartridge, of all things, and used a few papers on hand from a creative basics kit from Close to my Heart. I love those kits since they give you a good amount of a 2 double sided patterned papers and ribbon to work with for a bigger project. I added some solid card stock, some sandylion Kelli Pannaci stickers, and some Target dollar section brads form my stash for finishing touches! Of course the blue bunnies! :) They were originally supposed to be green so they would hop from right to left but I liked the blue better for an accent. :) Hope your Spring is a great one!!
