Mid-challenge Inspiration for DigiStamps4Joy

Hello, and happy Wednesday, everyone! It is finally beginning to feel like Spring here in NW WI.  All but the largest of snow banks have melted, and the ice is off the small lake across the road from where I live.  The large lakes will remain iced over for another week or so, making for excellent springtime birding close to home!
The current challenge at DigiStamps4Joy is Easter/Spring.  Since we're past Easter, I went with a springtime theme, making this sweet card:
 My very first pet ever was a rabbit named Sniffer.  I got him for Easter when I was 7, and had him for 7 years.  This card brings back many sweet memories of my dear childhood friend.
The name of the digi is "Hello Bunny" (jl124)

I colored the image with Copic markers, used designer papers by Pebbles Papers, I used a Spellbinders label die and a Cheery Lynn butterfly die. The sentiment is from Unity Stamp Company. The bling is from my stash.
I hope you enter your spring/Easter projects in the DigiStamps4Joy challenge.  I'd love to see what you've made!
