Stampin Celebration #100 & Addicted to Stamps

This is my first time with this challenge: Stampin' Celebration, .  They have a really pretty inspiration photo:
 
I used PTI's Beautiful Brushstrokes and what I liked about the photo was the white and green...but then I saw a bit of silver and gold too.  I stamped the flowers off each time I stamped the three layers....I didn't want pure white, just a touch of the green but this was the lightest I could get it! the sentiment is from PTI Wet Paint.
My next card is for Addicted to Stamps and this might be my first time for this challenge also.  The challenge this week is for "ANYTHING GOES!"  I loved that Lawn Fawn was sponsoring this challenge.
I have adored these Lawn Fawn bunnies from the Snow Day stamp set and thought they would be perfect for an Easter card.  The little eggs are an older Hero Arts quatros set called Fanciful Eggs.
I used the Lawn Fawn stitched hillside borders and the grassy borders dies.  The sentiment is from a PTI set called Egg Hunt.
I sponged some distress ink for the background,

  4. I love the touch of gold on your Stampin Celebration card. Gorgeous flowers. The bunnies are adorable and the hunt is on! This is adorable. I'm glad to know our dog isn't the only one like that. She thinks everyone comes to see her and she loves everyone. Keeping her down would be almost impossible.
