hippity hoppity Easter's on it's way

Hello my crafty friends.  I can not believe Easter is almost here!!  It seems like I just put away Christmas decorations.  But I have to say I really enjoyed making Easter cards this year.  Being on the KaDoodle Bug Designs' design team has sure made it easy and fun.  Melissa sure makes some amazing files.  For example the cute file " Cute little Bunnies".. I made the card above using it.
I used the following supplies to put it all together..

CTMH Bamboo cardstock
CTMH Pixie Cardstock
CTMH Crystal Blue Cardstock
assorted rhinestones from Bo Bunny
Happy Easter stamp from CTMH
Easter egg pattern paper from Hobby Lobby
Black micron pen
Tim Holtz distress inks..Broken China and Worn lipstick and Vintage Photo

I hope you like today's project and will leave some love.. to get the bunny file used check out the shop here,

Thanks for stopping by...Cathy
