Hoppy Easter!

I finally finished the last Easter card I have been working on since the weekend. My mojo flew out the door...still trying to find But I wanted to try and squeeze one more Easter card in before the holiday is over. And not only that, but I didn't want to miss the chance to use Roberta's adorable "Baby Bunny Emily" image that can be found in the "Prairie Fairy Designs" shop HERE!

For my card I used a sketch from "Sketch N Stash" Challenge. For the cute egg shaped that I framed Baby Emily with...I used an awesome free SVG cut file from HERE! Since I don't have the "Sure Cuts A Lot" software for my Cricut, I had to cut out the templates by hand and resize them to fit the way I wanted.

Not sure if you tell from my horrible pics...but I used some turquoise colored tulle along with some pearl sprays and small flowers for the background to make it look even more And if you look close enough you can see the little purple butterflies I added as well! And "Glossy Accents" was added to the glasses and pacifier again...I just love that stuff!

And make sure to check back in the next couple days as I will have some new sentiments to share with you!

I just love that butterfly charm! It's another old charm I had for awhile laying around in my charm box.

The inside...

PAPERS: Textured cardstock in pink pastel, turquoise pastel and white all from "DCWV". Design paper is from "Recollections" and "KiMemories".
IMAGE and SENTIMENT: The image is a digi stamp and is from "Prairie Fairy Designs". The sentiment is my own computer generated text.
INK and COLOR: The image was colored in with "PrismaColor" pencils and a gamsol technique was used to blend. 
EMBELLISHMENTS: Pink rhinestones, white pearls, lavender satin ribbon, turquoise tulle, butterfly charm, pink rhinestone on silver and white leather covered brads from "Lush" and all flowers and pearls sprays are from "WOC" (Wild Orchard Crafts).
TOOLS: Sewing machine, "Cuttlebug" with swirls embossing folder, "Spellbinders" machine w/ ovals and scalloped ovals dies, SVG Layered egg shape Cut file template from HERE, Bubbles border punch from "EK Success", "Martha Stewart" butterflies punch and the "Bow Easy" bow maker.
FEATURES: Machine stitching in and out with lilac color thread. Image and sentiment were 3-D foam mounted. "Glossy Accents" and "Stickles" were added to the image for even more depth.
