Classy Cards Spring Scene

Hi, I'm posting today with a card for the current Classy Cards 'n Such Bunnies Rule challenge.  I created a scene with some of my new dies and I hope you like the result.

I die cut the baskets and colored them with a Mini Ink Blending Tool and distress ink.  Multiple layers of grasses were cut and colored and the baskets were nestled into the grass.  I used Joy Foam Pads to add dimension between the grass layers.

I die cut and colored the bunnies and used Joy! Foam Pads to adhere them in between the grasses.  The chicks were cut, sponged with ink and situated in the basket.  Black dots for eyes were added on both the chicks and bunnies.

For the tree branch I cut the  Impression Obsession Leafy Branch die twice, colored with distress ink and layered both together.  The bottom branch was glued down tightly but only the branches of the top layer were glued so the leaves could be turned for added dimension.

I blended distress ink over the background with a blending tool before gluing the clouds, making sure the clouds overhung the edges for a more natural looking scene.  The flowers were shaped with a stylus from McGill's Paper Blossoms Tool Kit and tiny rhinestones were glued to the centers for sparkle.

The last addition was the little fence which may be retired.  Classy Card 'n Such carries a similar die the Poppystamps Country Fence.
