Spring Fling Stamp Jam Challenge

Welcome to Stampin' Addicts 5th Saturday Stamp Jam and Blog Bouncing! The Stamp Jam will officially start March 31, 2012 at 9am Eastern Time. Each hour a challenge will be posted for you to play along with in the Stamp Jam Thread over on Stampin' Addicts Site. Below is a list of Hostesses who have each picked one of the challenge themes and a link to their blogs. We each have created 2-3 samples for you!!! They all have done such a fantastic job!! Be sure to visit each blog to check out all the wonderful creations. When you're done head on over and join us on Stampin' Addicts in the March 31 Stamp Jam Thread to play along with us!!!

I am hosting the Spring Fling challenge.  We have had very warm spring weather and the trees and flowers are blooming ahead of schedule.  The apple and pear tree blossoms are beautiful and they were my inspiration for this card.
This is made with My Digital Studio.  I printed the Sweet Floral image three times-- once in Lucky Limeade (100% opacity), then in Blushing Bride (100% opacity) and a third time in Blushing Bride (75% opacity).   I cut the darker Blushing Bride flowers out and layered them over the Lucky Limeade ones on the background, then cut some of the lighter flowers for the foreground and popped them up with Stampin' Dimensionals.

We have seen quite a few bunnies in the yard this spring. I am sure it will be only a matter of time until they start nibbling on the garden goodies. 
The bunnies won't be the only ones nibbling these carrots though-- they are chocolate! 
The fence is Nursery Nest DSP cut with the Designer Rosette Die and folded on the scoreliness.  The candy holder on the inside is cut with the Box #2 die and punched with the 3/4" Circle Punch.

Here is a complete list of all the hostesses.  Once you are done bouncing through the blogs, pop on over to Stampin' Addicts and share your projects with us!
