The Paper Shelters 57th Challenge - "Easter"

Good Morning Everyone, well yet another week has flown by and we are almost in April and the holdiay season, so we thought we would get ahead of the game and devote this weeks challenge to "Easter" so hopefully it will give your lots of time to get your cards done and into the post for all little ones you make for.
And of course this week as always we are being sponsered by our very talented and generous couple Veronica and Pedro from The Paper Shelter and they are offering

a $20. gift Voucher to spend on the Website The Paper Shelter, and this is providing you have used one of their stunning images or other products on your card, but even if you havent they will still offer you three digi images of your own choice, you just carnt loose with this Challenge.
And here is my card for this Challenge

And this little chap (from last years designs) is called the "Easter Bunny" and you will find it here, Ive printed him onto white card then used my copic and tria pens to colour him, afterwards I used the Nestabilitie Egg Die to cut him out then drew around the die to create the mount for it out of dark blue card. The sentiment is one from my stash and has been treated in the same way.
The base card is a 6"x 6" white card with a first mount of blue card and for my papers I have used the "Easter" papers from The Paper Shelter and you will find them here, this first paper is a pretty pink background with a design of easter eggs along the bottom, I then used another of the papers and one of the Cheery Lynn Doily dies which I have cut out and placed behind the mount image, but before sticking it down I wrapped a easter egg ribbon around the card and attached it to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then stuck in the centre and to finish of I have used the border Nestabilitie die and cut a strip out and rolled it into a flower (top tip), which I then stuck to the card on top of some punched out  holly leaves.
Now that youve seen my card I do hope that you will go and visit The Paper Shelter Challenge Blogspot and see what the rest of the very talented Design Team have created for your inspiration and I do hope you will all visit their own blogs and leave them some love as they really do work hard to create this beautiful cards and Im so lucky to have them on my "A" Team. I do hope that you will take part in this "Easter" Challenge.
This card is to be entered in the following Challenges:-
