Happy Easter

Hambo Stamps says "Happy Easter" with BUNNY PARADE!  Ya know why I like Hambo's challenges so much?  Because they offer you free images for participating, they have great images AND great challenges!!!

This weeks challenge - Hoedown 58 -  "Using "Bunny Parade" (or any other Hambo image), make an EASEL CARD using the spring colors of lavender, yellow, pink, green and blue! Choose at least THREE of those colors for your card. (Bonus points if you use all five!).

Once again I am challenged to do something outside of my comfort zone - easel cards.  I messed up twice before I got the scoring just right!  I had the scoring lines written down for a 4.25 x 5.5 card but wanted to make a 6x6 card.  As usual, my brain over thinks things.  Finally, got the measurements right and wrote those in my trusty little notebook that I refer back to all the time.

Items used:
Copics - R81 E31 E35 G12 G14 Y13 YR15 V15 B12 RV55
White Daisy cardstock - CTMH
All colored cardstock - DCWV
Doily border punch - Martha Stewart
Button, ribbon, green rhinestones, pop dots and double sided adhesive - unknown
White rhinestones - Want 2 Scrap
Clear Rock Candy Tim Holtz Distress Stickles - Ranger
Yellow Studio g glitter glue - Hampton Art
Chipboard egg - Oriental Trading

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

Hi Melissa! I had a little trouble finding this post, as it was linked to your general blog, and not specifically to the post. Next time! :)

Glad I did, however, because this is darling! The DP is super cute and fits perfectly with your colors!

Thanks for sharing at the Hoedown!
