PCCCS138 --- Happy Easter!

That little bunny from the Happy Easter Bunny stamp set makes me think of Snoopy (of the old Peanuts comic strip) and his happy dance.  Take away the bunny ears and tail and you have good old Snoopy.  He makes me smile, which is a wonderful way to begin making a card.

The sketch for this week's Paper Craft Crew Challenge was simply perfect for what I had in mind for that bunny.

Paper Craft Crew Card Sketch 138 #stampinup #papercraftcrew #papercrafts #cardchallenge

I used a number of punches and framelits for this card.  The left side has Blushing Bride cardstock cut with the beautiful Striped Scallop thinlit.  The centre of the card has more Blushing Bride cut with the On Film framelit.  Then I've used the Small Oval punch for a couple of the Easter eggs and the little flower punch from the Itty Bitty Accents punch bundle for the flowers at the top right.  The bunny, however, was carefully fussy-cut right down to his thin little whiskers.

I've kept the colours to Whisper White, Blushing Bride and Coastal Cabana.  The background of Irresistibly Yours Designer Paper was lightly sponged with Pistachio Pudding and the bunny, of course, has a mixture of neutrals to make him look like a bunny.  All this is layered on top of a base of Naturals White.

I had such fun making this card.  Honestly, the bunny had me smiling throughout.  That doesn't happen with every card.























I've also entered this card in the Addicted to Stamps and More for their Holiday challenge.

And I couldn't resist entering the Photo Challenge at the Around the World Stampin' Up Challenge.
