Easter Bunny & Egg


I really gave my Big Shot a good workout in making this Easter card! My friend loaned me this cute and fancy Easter Egg die which I cut with turquoise and lined with some graphic 45 dsp. I went searching for some pastel coral cardstock to coordinate with it, but the only thing I found was this dark coral piece of CORE-dinations so I embossed it with a CB swiss dots ef. The lower panel was a snippet of celery green cardstock which I embossed with a SU! square lattice ef. The bunny is  a die by Lil Inker and I added a twine bow and some liquid applique fuzz for his tail - along with a tiny black gemstone for an eye. The greenery was made with an unbranded die I received as a gift from a thoughtful and generous friend, and I added a bit of darker green color with a Copic. The sentiment is a digital print from Sans Design which I colored with Copics and then matted with celery and turquoise - again using my Big Shot and some SB circle and scalloped circle dies. The final touch was adding some tiny pearls from Pizzazz Aplenty and I called this one done.

I'm entering this into the following challenges:
