Challenge #6 - Cards for Men - "Easter"

Good Morning Crafters, well its Monday again and a new Challenge over on Cards for Men and again Im having to create a "Easter" card, just when I thought I had finished but as my new great grandson is now here I will post this onto him though hes a bit young to appreciate it. As I said this weeks Challenge is all about "Easter" and we want to see you make one to follow this theme, and it must be for a man or boy so you will have to start putting your thinking hats on and finding something you thing is relevant.
This weeks Challenge we are being sponsored by Bugaboo Stamps:-

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay

As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!

If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps stamps at Totally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug

I love the images we were given to play with and for my card I decided to us this one,


Isnt he cute hes called "Bunny Boy" and I have printed him onto white card then used my copic pens to colour him, afterwards I used Nestabilitie Die No.17 to cut him out then drew around the die to create the mount for him. The sentiment is one I created on my computer then printed it out.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card the papers I have used are from Nitwits "Carrots too" paper set, the first one is a blue spot one, then on top is a green check and the third is a plaid across the middle, I did use the Martha Stewart Rabbit border punch along both sides and this was placed under the second mount.
The mounted image was then placed towards the top in the center and then the sentiment at the bottom on the right hand side, to finish of I have used a rabbit button and three Easter egg buttons along the bottom. 
Now that you've seen my Card I do hope that you will go and visit the Cards for Men Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have for your inspiration.

What a lovely card, I love that you went with boyish colors but didn't go dark or drab, these are wonderfully spring-y and the patterns are masculine and crisp. (By the way, I think I need that bunny border punch!) The image is sweet and wonderfully colored. I also love those buttons you've added. All in all, a marvelous card and very happy.

Thank you so much for playing with us at Opus Gluei, I hope you come back for our current theme. Would love to see what you make of it!
