Shower of Blooms

OCL had a new release party in February and let me tell you, there are some spectacular images in these stamp sets.  I have already had to go to Memories of Time in Coos Bay and pick a couple of the sets up.  This is the first card I made with "Shower of Blooms".  This a a beautifully illustrated set (by Marianne Walker) with so many possible uses.  This one is going to my sister for her birthday!

This photo definitely doesn't do this image justice! 
The large rabbit is raised and the outer little rabbit is raised even further.  The front section of the umbrella was also stamped and colored a 2nd time.  The tips (all 3) and glued to the original picture and the center, near the edge was pop dotted to raise it out.
The image is stamped with Memento tuxedo black ink on Neenah solar crest cardstock.  Copic markers were used for the coloring.  All of the die cuts are Spellbinders.  The ribbon, flowers and half pearls are all from my stash.  The DP is DCWV. 
Can't wait to play with the other images!

I will try and post a photo of your cards on my next blog post( sometime in the next few days) I have just been a bit swamped with report cards just now.
