Easter is on its way!

Hi everyone.  How are you all doing?  I hope you have had a fabulous week.

This weeks challenge over at Polka Doodles is Happy Easter.  I hope you are all saving up your chocolate allowance for all those yummy Easter Eggs :-)

I just had to use the Cherryblossom Lane CD for this project, as it is full of fabulous rabbits.  Of course there are loads of images for all different occasion; Friends, Birthdays, Wedding, Get Well, Celebration and so much more.  Backing papers galore, sentiments, pre-coloured toppers and digi stamps for you to colour too.

The digital stamp that I have used is of this gorgeous little rabbit called Lily.  Isn't she sweet.

Lily is coloured up with my Spectrum Noir markers.  For her dress, I used my blender pen on top of the pinks to make the little polka dots.  It worked really well, don't you think.

The image does not come with the Easter eggs, but I decided to cut out the basket from a second print and layer it up on some pop dots, then I cut some little teeny eggs to go in her basket.  The papers are all from the same CD.

I outlined my image using the FS2 Spectrum Noir marker, it gives her a little bit more definition.

I made the little banner, using some embroidery thread and some triangles.  The little triangles are just a 1/4 inch in size, they were cut using my Silhouette Cameo and the cut and print feature.

The layer with the image of Lily, is cut with a Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels 8 and I inked all the edges of all my layers, including the little banner.  I added a little polka dot ribbon to finish off the front.

For the inside, I used the same papers as the front, along with a little floral stamp.

I hope that you will take this opportunity to get some Easter cards made and go along and enter this weeks challenge.  You have until Sunday, 24th March (12pm GMT) to get in your entries, so plenty of creative time.
