Bloggers Challenge – Easter

I must admit that this is not my creation!  I cased this card for my Easter Card this year (and, sorry, I can't remember whose it is…if it is yours, let me know!)  I thought it was DARLING!  I'm just didn't get time to make up one for the challenge this week, so thought I'd show this one.

 

The base card is So Saffron with a layer of Bermuda Bay over top.  I used the Welcome Neighbor Designer Paper (from SAB) for the clouds in the background.  The cracked egg is from Stampin' Up!'s A Good Egg…I borrowed the set at the Retreat a few weeks ago from my friend, Dina.  I WILL buy this set if it isn't on the retired list!  I end up using hers every year!  lol

 

The chick is punched with the 1 1/4 circle from So Saffron cardstock, then I punched a strip of Whisper White with the 1" and 1 1/4" Circle Punches for the hat.  The bunny ears are two petals from the 5 Petal Punch in Pretty in Pink, then I traced them on Whisper White and cut them out slightly larger.  The wings of the Chick are the small heart punch and I just cut a piece of Pumpkin Pie for the beak.  I sponged around the edges with More Mustard and used the White Gel Pen to highlight some areas.  I just cut the grass from Certainly Celery free-hand and drew on the eye and legs.  Finally, I stamped Happy Easter from A Good Egg and punched with the Word Window punch, then layered it on the Modern Label punch from Bermuda Bay!

 

Hope you have a wonderful Easter weekend!
