PSC70 Easter Bling

I made this card for my oldest granddaughter using the Perfect Sentiments challenge PSC70 - which is to make an Easter card with bling and put the sentiment on the front.  I used a SNSS bunny image and colored it with Copics, adding some liquid applique for the tail, and Spica glitter pen accents on the butterfly. I added some glittered dsp made by DCWV that I've had for eons! The bling is in the flowers on the cardstock - you might be able to see that better if you click to enlarge the photo. I cut the image into a tag, and matted with green galore cardstock. The top portion of the card was embossed with a Sizzix damask ef and I made a horizontal border with some bobbin ribbon shaped like little flowers. The green gingham ribbon was from my stash.
I can't believe Easter is just around the corner and I'm only beginning to make my Easter cards! Yikes! What was I waiting for?!

Thanks for stopping by and have yourself a wonderful weekend!

What a cutie! I love the bunny tail and sweet, gingham ribbon. I guess I'm not making any more Easter cards. I think I only made one or two....maybe none. Ha I better check and see if I have any to mail. Easter is coming too fast for me this year. Wish it was in late April.

Lovely card! Your coloring is great and I love your idea to put liquid applique on his tail and glitter highlights on the butterfly. Using the glittered paper was a good choice, too. Thanks for sharing your art at The Perfect Sentiments challenge.
