Easter Card...

I bought a couple of new stamp sets today in hobbycraft for a £1 each (well that's just pocket money LOL) and thought I would try them out. I thought I'd use the bunny one for an easter card as I don't seem to have much in the way of Easter images. I'm not sure she looks a very happy bunny though, in fact she looks a little startled!!

I also used my new Marianne English Rose die to make the flowers. I tried them out with some felt I bought a while ago to make ducks (don't ask) and  they turned out quite nice. I have never tried felt with die cuts or flower making before and the only thing I will say is that you can't manipulate it in quite the same way as you can paper - once rolled it tends to stay there, it won't go 'loose' of you let go of  it. Otherwise lovely and tactile and holds it shape well.

Struggled for a sentiment and opted to use a ready made one from an old kit. Being lazy.
Bit of ribbon and bling and voila, one Easter card.

I am putting this one into the J & CC March challenge. I'm also going to link up with the current polkadoodles challenge (could have done with the Cherry Blossom Lane CD for a bunny image!!) and chose the backing paper from Studio 12's Picknix  'Heavenly Garden'.

Sweet card, I am liking the bright and cheery yellow flowers! I am extremely lazy and rarely make my own flowers!

Maybe your bunny just heard the weather forcast! She's worried about those gorgeous felt flowers in the snow. Thank you for joining us at J&C Creations.
