Chartreuse...oh how I love thee!

I know, Chartreuse...It brings to mind those hideous 60's and 70's velour couches our grandparents had--or still have! I know my grandma had one forever! LOL! But I am in love with this color with papercrafting. It's not almost olive (one of my OTHER favorite colors) and just fun to play with!

I decided to use it for my card for this week's challenge for Paper Sundaes Challenge Blog--Pearls and Lace. We are being sponsored by the amazing

I recently purchased three LOTV stamps and I was so happy to get to use one this week...I pulled out Spring Swing.
I enjoyed using the first layout for Viva la Verve May 2012. It was just what I needed to showcase this darling little bunny! I pulled out three embossing folders to help add some texture to this fun card. I didn't have any chartreuse colored buttons, so I sort of made this one. I didn't have a lot of luck coloring it with my Copics, so I ended up inking it up with my Old Olive ink pad too.
