Spring has Sprung...

This is a great image to color and made a good one for a "Double Z-card / First Signs of Spring" challenge for Quirky Crafts.  I chose my colors from the Designer Papers from K & Company.
The Z-card is amazingly simple to make after following the tutorial Kevin wrote on his site - Free Printables.  The idea is to use two A2 cards and attach the right side to the left side of the two open cards - making a double layered back of a single card.  Then with the new right and left sides - fold back to the crease on each side and make the Zs.  (See the photo below).  I used light wt. CS to decrease the bulk of the card.
The bunny was colored with Copics and I made this close-up so you can find the little mouse!

The several layers and the colors of spring make this card eligible for the following 
CHALLENGES:
IMAGES:  The focal image is from a collection purchased years ago... unfortunately I have no record of the company.
PAPER:  Neenah Classic Crest Solar White 80# Cover Wt. used for the image panel; DP is from K & Company: "Citronella" collection, base CS is from my endless stash.
INKS: The image is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black & colored with Copics:
