Spring Fling...Easter Wishes

Isn't this a lovely inspiration photo from City Crafter's, the colors made me think of Easter, what do you think?

Well here's my cutsey-pa-toot-sy card.

I used pool party color for the card and stamped it with a gorgeous scrolly background stamp in white ink for the top half of the card. I cut a small rectangle of white cs, trimmed the edges with a "wavy" cutter, stamped some grass in the corner and "laid" a few easter eggs (using the challenge colors) in the grass. I colored the bunny's ears in pink to go along with the challenge colors.

The Easter Bunny was stamped twice, once on the rectangle and fussy cut his cute little bottom so it kinda hung over the edge, I thought the pom-pom would show up better against a color instead of the white. I then cut out the second stamped bunny (minus the ears and whiskers...didn't think I'd ever be able to cut those out) added an itsy-bitsy pom-pom for his cottontail and popped him (or her) up on dimensionals. Stamped the sentiment in the corner and that's my Easter card all done.

Here's a close-up of the cute little bunny.

Aww, this little bunny is darling! I love the way you fussy-cut her and have her bottom hanging off the edge. Just like the sweet grass hanging off the edge too. Way to combine the colors in the eggs! Congratulations on your spotlight win--woohoo! love, Nance
