Spring Peeps!

As part of our Ocean 11 blog group, the members are going to post challenges. The first was posted by Chirleen! We had to create a spring themed card that is 3-D. Sorry to have two shadowbox cards in a row, but when I think 3-D that's what comes to mind first!
  And what says Spring like Peeps! These peeps are naturally, sugar-coated (Martha Stewart chunky glitter) as is the scalloped circular opening to mimic those neat little sugar eggs you would get sometimes as a kid that had a sugar diorama inside. Remember those? 
  I have no idea where the DP is from, but I edged it with my sharpest pair of scissors to look like grass. The 'sky' paper behind the bunnies is part of that paper set too, I didn't stamp that. The wee flowers are cut out individually from a cute SU set (retired) called Pocket Full of Posies. Fiskars scalloped border punch and a bit of ribbon. Thanks for looking!

Oh my gosh...this is adorable, I love it too cute, I'm afraid my example doesn't even compare...wonderful creation.

Oh PeggySue.... this is just fantastic!!!! I LOVE your diarama card! That grass looks so real! Love the dp, the sugary coating... it is just great! Talk about talent! I also had forgotten to go look at the thread so I didn't know about the challenge. I'm not sure I'll get to it this week with leaving day after tomorrow to help my DD move, but we'll see. You asked about the stamp I was going to use for my sparrow card. It's made by Ann-ticipations, Stockton, CA. It's dated 2004. If you'd like some stamp offs of it let me know.... when I get back I'd be happy to send them!!! I LOVE your work!!!
