Easter card for The Pink Elephant challenge

Public Enemies Columbus Merchandise

Seems my only posts recently are my challenge items for The Pink Elephant each week.
LOL This week's challenge is to make something with an Easter theme. Since I was already in the process of making Easter cards, this one fit in perfectly. I tried a
couple of new things with this one. I used a brayer on which I dabbed shades of Martha Stewart green and blue inks and then brayered it onto a piece of white cardstock. I stamped the bunny on a separate piece of white cardstock and cut him out, adhering him with a piece of pop dot. The "Happy Easter" was stamped directly to the card with Versamark and embossed with a blue embossing powder. The tracks and
"boing, boing" were also stamped directly on the card. I added ribbon to this piece and then double matted the entire piece. A double flower and egg button finish it off.

Sue this is gorgeous - I love your background and the sentiment is brilliant. I have a tiny 'hoppy Easter' but nothing so big and bold - love it.

The easter egg brad in the flower centre is cool too and the bunny hopping along. Hmmmmmmmmm guess there are just tons of things I like about this card!!!
