Easter Joy


I don't usually use many pastels in my card making, because I am a bright color person. But,
I just love these little Easter bunnies from the
Easter Joy Stamp set by Crafty Secrets (shown below) and I had this Easter Egg paper for several years. I thought it all went together very nicely. I tried to fit the Easter egg on the card, but it just took away from it, so I used it as a prop for taking a picture of the card.

I used Martha Stewart's Diamond Punch and cut out two layers, one in a brighter pink and one in green and overlayed them. It looks really cool IRL. I colored the bunnies with my Marvy Water Color Pencils to give them the nice soft pastel look they so deserved.


By the way, be sure to take a look at Sharon's card today where she again used the Mindscapes Inkadinkado Stamp. (shown below) It is absolutely gorgeous.
