Easter Bunny

There are so many Easter challenges out there right now, with the holiday being just days away.  I wanted to 'hop' on that (I know, I'm a very corny person) with my clean-and-simple bunny card:


I felt badly for not making more than one Easter card, so whipped up a small handful of these today.  The white base is stamped with the Gingham background from Market Street Stamps, in Crumb Cake.

The bunny, from Stampin' Up!'s Tender Toile, is set in a die cut, with softly sponged edges, then mounted on a black scalloped oval.  A simple dotted bow provides some softness, with a small button glued on.  I tried to make these cards as mail-friendly as possible, but the bulk of the bow and pearls made that impossible.  ;)  They're still 65 cents to mail, but I think worth it.


Challenges entered:





That's it for me!  Thanks for dropping by.  I always appreciate your visit!

Awwwwww, this is just adorable, Colleen. I love that bunny image and the gingham stamp is awesome. I need to get that one so I could have my gingham any color I want. The bunny image kind of reminds me of LaBlanche. I can't wait to get back to the scrapbook store and get some more of those...maybe very soon.
