Here is the Sketch Challenge for today!


Yes, I once again used Ears to You this week!  I'm trying to use it as much as possible before Easter!  lol!  Actually, as I mentioned earlier, this is my Easter card for this year.  I need to get them mailed out…last year my Easter cards sat on my desk and never got mailed!  lol!  The Sunshine & Sprinkles Designer Paper is just so bright and colorful, too!  Perfect for Easter cards!



Here are the details:

  1. The base is a square card, 4 1/4 x 8 1/2 Pink Pirouette, folded in half.
  2. I added a 4 x 4 piece of the polka dot pattern in Sunshine & Sprinkles DSP on top.
  3. I cut a Scallops #2 Square of Daffodil Delight and placed on top with Stampin' Dimensionals.
  4. Inside I have a Whisper White square embossed with the Cloudy Day folder, then sponged with a little Bashful Blue ink.
  5. I cut a scrap piece of Lucky Limeade for the grass and cut blades with my Paper Snips.  I stamped Happy Easter from Teeny Tiny Wishes with Black Stazon on top.
  6. I inked up the bunnies from Ears to You with Daffodil Delight, and Pink Pirouette, then cut them out and placed in the grass with Stampin' Dimensionals.  I added Pearls to their tails.
  7. Finally I tied a bow from Old Olive Striped Ribbon and adhered with a Mini Glue Dot.

Hope you enjoy my Easter card!  Make sure to check out the rest of the Challenge Team over on Create with Connie and Mary for their designs this week using this sketch.  Then grab your stamps and play along!

This is such a cute card!  I so wish we had those bunnies in NZ.  Love the spring colors you've used.
