First things first: my stash of Easter themed products verges on nil (need to address that - sale on Easter products at the scrapbook outlook in the 'big city'...trip planned for Saturday), however, I do have one Easter stamp, a wee stitched bunny die and two sheets (yes, only two!) of 12 x 12 Easter/Spring paper that I've had for a while. So...given those limitations - and knowing I should bring at least a couple Easter items to my parents', I did the best I could...
My card was certainly inspired by the wonderful bunnies, eggs and bright colours over at Cure for the Monday Blues #13. Seeing this charming photo reminded me of the papers I'd squirreled away.
Sketched required; sketch found. Inkspirational #54
Because my bunny is so teensy (seriously, you will laugh at how small it is!), I needed something to add some 'bulk' - and the Layer Cake challenge over at A Blog Named Hero sparked ideas...
Also heading to The Pink Elephant #246, Easter theme challenge:
Whoa...I had no idea this little card would fit (sort of) so many challenges!
Ready? Here it is....
NOTE: So honoured, thrilled and delighted that my rosette bunny was selected as A Blog Named Hero "Heroine". THANK YOU!!!!
A doily, rosette and scalloped circle, made from each side of the 12 x 12 paper; a white sentiment-stamped circle and the 'star' of the show, my itsy bitsy bunny, sporting sparkly floral fur, no less! Hard to see, but I scored the edges and along the diagonal, as shown in the sketch.
Yes, sometimes letting the paper do the talking is kind of fun (and just out of pure luck, the bunnies on either side of the rosette worked out fairly well when I die cut the doily, so my bunny total is actually three!).
Since you're here: one more share. I decided to use up more of the patterned paper, making some bitty journals for my niece (four done, and a couple more we'll make together), inspired by the video here. I made her a little envelope (inspired by Freshly Made Sketches #132, but I'm not linking up). I've told her about them and she wants to write poems. Immediately after announcing that, she asked me what a poem was....toooo funny!
Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!
