And if you go to her own blogsite she has fabulous yummy blogcandy on offer if you click on the link at the top of my blog you will be taken straight to it. Anyway heres my card for this Challenge.

I have used for this card two of the beautiful Teddy Bo images, both of them of Bo dressed up in his bunny suit, the one on the outside is of him trying to scale a rather large Easter Egg, and the one inside he seems to have been palmed of with a smaller one. Both this images were printed onto white card before being coloured with my copic pens, I then used my oval Nestabilitie Oval Die to cut him out, and a large Scalloped one for the mount.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of dark brown card, and for all three pages I have used for my first paper a paper from the "Plain and Simple" set, a all over beige patterned paper, on top of this is a sheet from the "Spring Mix" paper which has spots of different colours and sizes on, and for my third is a sheet from the "Spring and Summer Stripes" paper, this two sheets have been cut in wide strips and Ive used a bunny border punch along both edges before mounting them up on top of the first mount, then across the middle I have wrapped a bunny ribbon which I have attached to the back of the first mount.
On the front I have put the first image of Bo trying to mount a large egg, and the sentiment down the bottom on the right handside, this came from TLC. In the inside on the left is the other image this also was mounted in the middle, and for the other side I have printed a verse onto white card from my computer and then cut this out with my oval Nestabilitie die as I did with the images.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope you will pop across to our Bearlymine Challenge Site and see what the rest of the Design Team have to show you, as they are a team of very talented ladies and I know they will inspire you into creating cards for this challenge.
