An Easter Egg for Bunny

Hello Peeps!!! Hope your weekend is a fun and sunny one. Mother Nature is blessing us with a lot of rain here.

This is a card I made for Miyuki for the March swap hosted by Kris. I was her Secret Sister. Thanks for your email Miyuki. So glad you loved it as I had a grand time creating it for you.

I'm so in love with my new cloud die by Memory Box that I got at Island Scrapbooking a few weeks ago as I've been looking for clouds for some time. As soon as I saw it, I was on Cloud 9. Woo-hoo.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Crafty Catz Weekly Challenge - Easter theme
Paper Play Challenge - Spring Colors
Cute Card Thursday - Anything Goes

This cute little boy is Masa by Sister Stamps and the bunny's name is Daba, whom I inked up with Copics. To give the scene some dimension, I distressed the edges of the fence and grass.   Being that I'm "stitch happy" I also sewed the dotted DP to the blue CS.  Oh and this is the first time I did paper piecing.   FUN.
For added dimension and some fun detailing, I used baker's twine on the pennants. 
Products used: Fence, grass, butterfly, and Easter egg punches by Martha Stewart, pennant stamp by Hero Arts, Spellbinder die, "Easter Wishes" sentiment by Studio G,  pooch stamp by Dandelion Designs and pearls by Kaiser Crafts.

Thanks for stopping by.   Have a Scrap Happy Day.   Hugs.

Holy Moly! That's a beautiful spring card. I love it because of all the colors and movement. It's hard not to make Easter cards not too girly. This one is perfect for any age or gender. You did a splendiforous (Is that a word?) job!

I love the card that you made for Miyuki. Your cards never cease to amaze me with all the wonderful detail and work that you put into making them. When I grow up I hope that I could make cards as nice as yours are. :)
