Easter pastels


I made some Easter cards yesterday to use up a piece of pastel plaid DP. I love these little Inkadinkado bunny images and every year I make several cards with this stamp. I used scraps of yellow, blue, and pink and cut them with the labels 4 die, then cut the plaid DP with the top note. The bunnies were stamped on wc paper, clear embossed, and colored with Tombows. The sentiment is by SU! and each is layered on matching card stock and cut with circle and scalloped punches. Tiny color coordinated gemstones were added along with matching ribbon. You can always click the photo to see it enlarged. For the final touch, I added a dab of liquid applique to their tails, let it dry overnight, then hit it with a heat gun to give them fluffy poofy tails :)
This has nothing to do with making cards, but did anyone else stay up to watch Shaun White win the gold medal last night? His perfomance was amazing!! What an incredible athelete!! I never paid attention to snow boarding too much, but he turned me into a fan!! All I can say is WOW!!!!!!
Have a great day today and thanks for stopping by :)

SO cute---love that sweet little bunny image and the colors are perfect! I watched a little of Shaun while eating at a pizzeria---my DD says that he must feel like a bird, flying through the air like he does!
