Bunny



This Easter card is made using a freebie image from Daisy Doodles. I have coloured it in with Promarkers and added a white fluffy tail with puff paint by Woodware. I haven't used it for ages and it still amazes me how much it puffs up with a heat gun. Small children are pleased by little things LOL

I used the sketch at Gem of a Challenge for the layout of the card and it measures a finished size of A5.

I have used one of my new Nestabilities sets to cut a mat out for the image with a paper by Basic Grey. I used a Marianne creatables die to cut the chick paper and a Fiskars punch on the Easter text paper. Both Easter papers are by Papermania, another half price bargain purchase from WH Smiths at Christmas.

I have added some Easter letter chipboard stickers from a pack I used on another Easter card. The little chick in the corners is from that too, isn't she sweet with her little pink ribbon :)

Last but not least I added some embroidered flowers which were one of the very 1st purchases I made in 2002 when I started cardmaking. They were on a lovely trim of assorted colours and I very carefully cut each flower and stored them, never to be used until now.



I would like to enter this card into the following challenges (in Alphabetical order) :-
