Easter Bunnies

Good afternoon everyone on another lovely, sunny day which makes a great start to the week. I'm very pleased to say that the internet is now working properly again so I will be catching up with everyone over the next few days (it will take a little longer than usual as my girls are home for Easter and I'm sure you all know what that means!).

Before I show you my card, can I give a little reminder that the current Let's Ink It Up challenge is Easter projects and you still have a few days left to get your entries in. As always, no digis are allowed as the challenge blog is all about getting inky. So if you've made any Easter creations using rubber or clear stamps, we'd love to see them and you would be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize from our sponsor, Scrappit. If you hop over to the challenge blog , click HERE to be transported, all the details are available.

Now for my card which is an Easter one, of course!

I couldn't resist these cute vintage bunnies when they popped up over at the Vintage Feedsacks site as my mother in law adores rabbits in common with our whole family and I knew they would be perfect for an Easter card.
I've used the sketch from Moving Along With The Times:
The background papers are stamped using the Inkadinkado Garden Delight set using Memento Grape Jelly and Bamboo Leaves dye inks. The effect was achieved by stamping once then stamping again before re-inking to create a misty shadow look which gives a very pretty patterned paper.
I added 2 pieces to my card blank and then added some checked knotted ribbon to follow the sketch. I added the bunnies on a mat made from a scrap of flourish stamped paper from my bits box.
I made the greeting panel using a copper plant label (very cheap for a pack of 20 at Wilkinsons), punching on a second hole and adding knotted ribbon. The greeting was stamped on lemon card using the grape ink and my Hero Arts Pixie alphabet letters. I then over stamped with some flowers using Memento Pear Tart ink. Some Prima flowers with pearl centres finish off the card.

My card is for these challenges:
Creative Craft World - Easter
Creative Inspirations - Easter
Craft Your Passion - 2 By 2
Moving Along With The Times - Sketch
Paper Cutz - Bunny, Lamb, Chicks or Easter Eggs

Thanks for looking,
Fliss xx
