Happy Easter Card

When it comes to making Easter Cards mine usually feature a rabbit. Although I realize the rabbit has nothing to do with the holiday. It did make me wonder why we use rabbits, chicks and colorful eggs to adorn our Easter Cards, so I did a little digging and found this article from NBC News.

To make this Happy Easter Card I started with the sketch from Tuesday Morning Sketches. Their sponsor this week is Bugaboo Digi Stamps and since I love using Bugaboo images, I decided to make a quick Easter Card. After searching my images I decided to us EB Eggs Easter Bunny and turn the sketch vertical to accommodate the image. The rest is pretty simple! The patterned paper is from the Spring Things paper pad by Doodlebug Designs and was matted to a piece of Daffodil Delight cardstock. Since my sewing machine was sitting out with yellow thread, I decided to stitch around the edges of the paper. It was then adhered to the white card base. To accent the image a bitty butterfly was added using the Papillon Potpourri stamp set along with the bitty butterfly punch both by Stampin' Up! The Happy Easter sentiment is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes stamp set by Stampin' Up! along with the word window and modern label punch (both retired). That's it!

This Happy Easter Card is entered into the following challenges:
