at Freshly Made Sketches, I thought it was perfect because it was similar to one of the ideas that I had. This is what I came up with:
Unfortunately I didn't finish my card in time to enter the challenge, but I still really like how this card turned out.
I started out with the cute bunny stamp that I got from one of the $1.50 bins at Michaels, and figured out which of my circle dies would fit it. I chose to make the circles on the side the next size circle down, and I chose to use Jillibean Soup's Blossom soup collection for the lower layer. I used some SU Certainly Celery for the card base.
I love the pink sheet with the type on it, so when I placed the die in order to cut I made sure that the bolded statement showing was one that I liked. I then chose several other springy sheets and coloured the bunny to coordinate. I added the top layer with some foam tape so the cirles look like windows.
Me being me I couldn't leave things alone, so I added some Sakura glitter pen, and as an afterthought I cut out a couple of butterflies from one of the sheets and added it with foam squares so the butterflies looked like they had just landed on the card. Once I added some bakers twine the card was finished!
Since I didn't have an Easter sentiment stamp I decided to write "Happy Easter" on the inside, and I added some circles die cut from the papers used on the front. I like how it turned out, but I'm not completely happy with my writing so I really think I need to practice on some calligraphy. :)
