Easter Blessings

How cute is this little girl? My friend Tammi sent me some adorable Sugar Nellie images and I just had to use this one for an Easter card. Now I have to confess, I had to doctor a boo-boo on the image. Can you find it? It's the top bunny ear. Let me set the scene for ya. I'm sitting here all happy because I had just finished coloring the image and it looked pretty good. So I go to move my marker tray and a piece of paper when low an behold an uncapped black marker comes rolling over the edge of the desk and lands smack dab on the bunny ear. All of that happened in slow mow and my eyes seriously bugged out of my head. Note to self, cap your darn markers! I couldn't throw it away because it's the only image I had so I took a deep breath, grabbed a Coke and went to work. You know caffeine helps in these situations, lol. I took a little piece of white cardstock, colored one edge with Creamy Caramel and outlined it with black before carefully cutting it out. Took me a few tries, but I think that I did an okay job. Hopefully the recipient won't admire it up close to much! After my panic attack, I added some Stickles to her cheeks. Again hoping to draw attention to her sparkly cheeks and not the malformed ear. I ran the top of the Celery cardstock through the Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder. I like the look of just having the dots on top. Tammi I totally Cased that idea for you!!! I tied the ribbon around the pattern paper, then decided to dress the bottom corner up with a button. I used a glue dot to attach some ribbon to the back, then used my paper piercer to poke where the two holes are. I then ran some white Scrapper's Floss through the holes. The sentiment is from Gina K. (Came with my order a few months ago). Card measures 6" x 3 1/2".

This is adorable! I so totally can't tell the bunny ear is "malformed". You rock at fixing oopses! I know what you mean about things like that happening in slow motion - it's the WORST feeling! Good job on fixing it! This card is too cute!
