Hoppy Bunnies

     I'm sure every child believes that an Easter celebration must be filled with hopping bunnies so I'm doing my best to give them that. 

I started with the sketch from Stella Says Sketch
but I had to eliminate the half-circle 
because I just couldn't get it to work.
I used the purple crocuses instead.

     That darling image is from Bugaboo Stamps and I colored it with my polychromos pencils and ProMarkers.  I cut the image with a die from Sue Wilson and then cut the backing for it with another die from that same set.

     I had already decided that I wanted to do a monochromatic theme so I chose my favorite color, purple.  The background CS is hand bleached with a Q-tip, a long process but I take an entire weekend to do several sheets of different colors all at once and then keep them for future use.

     I added lilac ribbon to the white lace and wrapped it around the card front before adding the image and sentiment.  I tied a tiny bow using purple baker's twine and then added the flower embellies, plus pearl gems at the top of the image.  The flowers are sparkly with glitter for a tiny bit more bling.
