Hoppy Easter

Time for a Jacksonbelle Embellishment challenge. Your challenge this week is to make a card using any product you got. You have absolutely no excuse to not play in this challenge. Just pull out some new goodies that you've recently purchased or dig out that stuff you've been hoarding for awhile and put it to good use. We would love to see what you come up with, so please use the keyword JBE041 when uploading your card.

My card this week using some new and old stuff. I just got this Lizzie Anne Hoppy Easter stamp in and I couldn't wait to ink it up. It tiny and oh so cute! I colored it in with Koh-i-noor pencils. (If you missed my coloring tutorial last week, you can check it out here). I wanted to give the image some dimension, so I cut out his hands holding the Easter egg and popped it up with a dimensional. I then went over the orange parts with Marigold Shimmerz. I love that color! It's super sparkly and will be perfect for Spring, Summer, Halloween, and Fall cards. Are you wondering why I colored my bunnies ears orange :) Yes Anna that's for you!!! I colored it orange to match this fabulous Fancy Pants: About a Boy paper. I love this line of pattern paper. They are bold, bright and perfect for not only little boy cards, but for Spring. I thought this combo was perfect to match my little bunny. It reminds me of grass and carrots. To finish it up, I dug out a felt flower and attached it with a Basic Grey Porcelain brad. I also added some Flame Dew Drops. Do y'all have Dew Drops? I have several different ones and for some reason I hoard them like crazy. I'm not sure why either. I love them and a TON come in a little jar. I gotta start using them more often! They are really easy to use too, I just glue them on with Mono Multi glue. The layout comes from Mojo 75; such a fabulous sketch!! Thanks for stopping by. Be sure to check out what the other design team gals made this week:
