Easter Bunny

Good evening, all! Well, it's meant to be Spring now, but it's sooo cold, and more snow is forecast for next week! I hope you're all keeping warm, my lovelies - I have a wonderful burgundy-coloured Slanket (it's like a fluffy blanket but with sleeves) and I am living in it every evening!

We had a power-cut two days ago, and spent the evening by candlelight. Thank goodness for my new Kindle, which glows in the dark so I was able to read for the 2 and a half hours we were without power!

Enough of this, here's a springlike Easter card:

The sweet Bunny is by Penny Black from the 'T for Transparent' Garden Friends set. I love her gorgeous straw hat!

She is coloured with Promarkers and I distressed round the edge with Bundled Sage DI. The mat is cut with a Nesties Scalloped Square die. I glittered the tiny butterflies but of course they don't show too well!

Papers are Basic Grey 'Porcelain' which I bought back in 2011 and which I had to force myself to cut into, they are so pretty and strokable! I used a Woodware Daisy punch and more of the same papers for the flowers, and the little brads and the pink ribbon are from stash. The sentiment is LotV.

Challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday provided the fab sketch:
Isn't it a corker?

My Time To Craft want 'Bunnies!'

Die-cuttin Divas also want to see a Bunny! I used a square Nestie to die-cut the image and the scalloped square Nestie for the mat.

Use It Tuesday want 'Die-cuts, Punches and Cut-outs' as well as hoarded stash! I've used dies and a punch, but not a cut-out, and my hoarded stash is the gorgeous paper!

Thanks for looking, all! Stay well!

Promarkers: Cocoa, Cinnamon, Tan, Putty, Satin; Pastel Pink; Sunflower, Canary, Yellow, Primrose; Antique Pink, Cocktail Pink; Sky Blue, Powder Blue
