An Easter card for the Our Creative Corner Challenge

Good Morning! I'm not being a very good blogger lately. Sorry about that, but I have been working hard on getting new products up on the 2RedBananas website, so I hope that helps :)

Silke Ledlow, who does AMAZING work, asked me to be a guest designer on Our Creative Corner for today. The challenge is to make an Easter card using your favorite Easter stamps. Well, my favorite Easter set is Jami Bova's "the Gift" set. I absolutely love this set and how there are so many different ways you can use it with the bunnies and the birds. And you have a chance to win it, so be sure to go to the OCC blog.

I used lots of fun stuff on this card. I started with a cream colored card base and then layered some purple polka dot BoBunny paper, then some Webster's Pages Purple Majesty paper. I used my Nestabilities Labels Two to cut the purple layer and the image layer and added lilac shimmerz to the border. I colored all the images with prismacolor pencils and mineral spirits and then added Inkssentials white pen to make the highlights. I added Angel Wings Shimmerz to the white cloth on the cross. I also added white flocking to the bunny tails :) The bunnies are up on pop-dots to make them higher than the cross layer. The strip of paper that the bunnies are 'standing' on is more of the BoBunny paper with a strip of the opposite side of the Webster's Pages paper then a length of May Arts violet velvet ribbon (which is also on the clip at the top). To finish the front I added purple dew drops from the Grapes and Leaves collection.

The second picture is the inside of the card where I put my sentiment and some embellishments too :)

2RedBananas has donated "the Gift" stamp set for a prize for this challenge so be sure to go to the Our Creative Corner blog and link your Easter card to be entered to win. All the details are on their blog :)
