Love to Scrap Buttons and Bows

Once again,  I'm wearing my Guest Designer Hat at 
Today begins challenge #26 - 
Buttons and Bows  
Stitchy Bear Digi Outlet (prize is a $10 gift certificate) and Fresh Squeezed Stamps (prize is a stamp set of winner's choice).

I've used a subway art stamp set  from Freshly Squeezed stamps, which was stamped several times in various colored inks.  Then I did some cutting, pasting, popping and coloring.  Talk about fussy cutting.... those little bunnies are definitely little bunnies.

I'll be entering the card above in the following challenges:
Card a Day March Challenge - week 2: Spring
Really Reasonable Ribbon Challenge #91 -  Welcome Spring + ribbon or trim
Open Minded Challenge #6 - Use some buttons
Crafty Hands Challenge #10 - Buttons and Bows
Cards in Envy Challenge - Anything Goes with an A2 Card

Since today is St. Patrick's Day, I used another Freshly Squeezed stamp from the same set and made this card for the occasion.

I'll be entering this card above in the following challenges:
The Artistic Stamper March Challenge - Letters, Words and Numbers
Connie Can Crop Challenge #20 - Green with Envy
Crafter's Companion Monthly Challenge - Monochromatic (I've used the argyle embossing folder by Darice.)
One Sweet Challenge March - Scream for Green
Come and Get It Challenge - St. Patrick's Day
Glitter n Sparkle Challenge #76 - Include Some Green/St. Patrick's Day
Corrosive Challenge #195 - Go Green

Before I go, I'd like to thank Love to Scrap for inviting me to be a Guest Designer this month.   I had lots of fun.

PS: You might want to hurry over to Freshly Squeezed Stamps because they are having a 50% off closing sale until the end of March!
