An Easter Card

Well, I can't believe that the last time I posted, I was showing you Valentines! Now I am with an Easter Card I wanted to share with you. I have this cute stamp with dancing bunnies from Cowtown Stamps.  I just love their stamps, and I wanted to use this one for Easter.  My problem was how to use Easter Bunnies (kind of) in a card, but still get across the real message of Easter. Sooooo........ I used Pink Paislee alpha stickers to spell out REJOICE, and then inside I computer generated text to tell WHY they are rejoicing............BECAUSE HE IS RISEN!!!!  I kinda like how that worked out and hope you do too.

My base card is white. I used a teal Coredinations cardstock as the next layer, and the layer on top of that is designer paper from a company I love more and more......Echo Park.  I cut out a Nesties Label 1 diecut (using the back side of the Echo Park dp), edged it with some glimmery Smooch, adhered it, and stamped a few flowers, leaves and grass on the bottom. Then I took the bunnies that I had colored with Copics and cut out, and I adhered them with 3D dots for dimension. I added the lovely silky ribbon from American Crafts and placed a pearl in the center. I cut out some white cardstock, adhered the alphas for REJOICE and used gemstones to dot my i and j.

Since I used the Smooch and the Gemstones, I believe this qualifies me for Tuesday Throwdown's challenge this week, which calls for bling and sparkle! They are giving a wonderful stamp set from The Greeting Farm, if you'd like to play along!
I am also entering Creative Inspiration's challenge this week. Their challenge is do make something for Easter. I think I have that covered! They are giving away 4 digis from Meljen's Designs to the winner. I absolutely love their digis!
Btw, here is the inside of the know, where I explain why the bunnies are rejoicing. lol 

Christ is risen indeed!!!  I just couldn't leave that out!! 
Thanks so much for stopping by my blog. I would promise to post more often, but I am afraid you have heard it all before! : )
