Just Us Girls #25 color challenge....and Benjamin Bunny

Hello friends!  It's saturday and time for a new challenge with Just Us Girls!  The amazingly talented Lisa is inspiring us with color this week.  Once I saw her inspiration piece with shows Beatrix Potter's, Peter Rabbit, I knew right away I wanted to make a card featuring his buddy, Benjamin Bunny!
Benjamin has been caught stealing onions!  Isn't he the cutest little vegetable thief you've ever seen?  I paired Ben with some Cosmo Cricket DP from a few seasons ago that is vintage easter colors all over the place!
It's all in the details!  To pull some of that sage-y green down to the bottom of the card, I punched the tiny daisies and adorned them with the perfect pink pearl from Want 2 Scrap!  I glued only the centers of the flowers to the background paper so the petals could fly free.
The craft store flowers were dressed up with Martha Stewert glitter and a spritz of antique rose glimmer mist to give a slight blush to the peach ribbon rose.  The seam binding was a steal at a local second hand store.

Ready amazing color inspo from the design team?  Please check them out!

Thanks so much for coming by!  Can't wait to see what you make!

Supplies:
Paper: Cosmo Cricket, Georgia Pacific
Ink: Papertrey Ink and Colorbox
Punch: EK Success
Pearls: Want 2 Scrap
Craft Supply:  pinking shears, sewing machine, ribbon flower, silk flower and seam binding
