Ready for spring

I am so ready for spring, April showers and all, but Mother Nature appears to have another blast of winter coming my way. The weather forecast is for snow/sleet/ice for the next few days, and there was craziness at the grocery store when I was there at noon.  I snagged one of the last cartons of milk but the guy who checked out in front of me had about eight gallons of milk in his cart. Seriously, that's just hoarding.

My springy card features a cute image from Crafty Sentiments.  The bunny is colored with pencils and OMS, with Sea Breeze ink sponged around the edges.  I added Glossy Accents on the raindrops and puddle (oh, dear, does that look like ice?)

To create the sentiment, I used parts of two different stamps.  To get "Sunshine" I used a marker to color only that word in a Hero Arts stamp.  Then I stamped the Hello from another set (probably studio G, something small and clear, anyway).

The layout is from Feeling Sketchy, #79.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:

Feeling Sketchy --sketch #79
