Bugaboo Easter


I recently downloaded this great Freebie stamp at the Catch the Bug Blog and have been wanting to use it for an Easter card.  After printing it out, I colored it with Tombow markers and cut it out with a Spellbinder die. 

 I layered it on blue, cut out with a slightly larger die.  I used foam tape to layer it on decorated card stock that I sponged the edges with purple and layered on a yellow card base.

I cut three 1” squares out of purple striped cardstock, sponged the edges with purple ink, and added them to the left side of the card with foam tape.  Then I punched out thre orange “carrots” using the smallest Spellbinder ornament die, sponged the edges with dark orange ink, and added loops of ribbon to the back of the top.  I used foam tape to add one “carrot” to each purple square.  Really fun card and adorable bunnies and chick.  Perfect for a child.  Or even an adult – we like cute, too.

This card is entered into the following challenges:
Crafts and Me Challenges #31 – Pink and Sweet
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge #79 – Children’s Cards
