A Very Happy Easter to You All

Todays card is one that Ive created from firstly a design on the Cute Companions Cd by Crafters Companion, and a Funky Kits, Sugar Nellie Stamp, its one of the Little Cotton Rabbits, as its Easter I felt that it was quite appropriate.

I stamped the image onto white card and coloured it with my Karisma Prisma Colouring Pencils, then I cut it out. The base card is a piece of A4 white card folded in half, and on top I have stuck a Pale Green Pearlescent Card, and then the image from the Cute Companions Cd. I actually printed it onto Photo Paper to make it stand out a bit more as on card is was a bit pale.

I then folded a piece of A4 Acetate in half and attach the two pieces together with some green Organza Ribbon on the spine.

To add a bit extra to it I have punched out some pink and yellow flowers, cupped them and stuck them on the tree and around the roots of the tree. Ive then stuck the Rabbit image onto the Acetate, and with a little piece of green ribbon left from the piece Id used for attaching the card together, made a knot and cut it to look like a ribbon, then attached it on the little rabbits head. To finish of the card Ive printed a greeting from one of Joanna Sheens Cds, but I put my own greeting on it and cut it out and stuck in onto the Acetate.

Im not going to be posting any cards till Tuesday now as I would like a bit of break for a few days, Ive no doubt a few of you will be doing the same, but I do want to wish you all a very Happy Easter and I will be back again next week.
