Easter Card - Bo Bunny Card Challenge Tuesday

Wishing each of you a blessed and joy-filled Easter. 

I have an Easter Card for you that I designed to enter the Bo Bunny Card Challenge Tuesday contest. The challenge is to use a shaped card and a handmade flower. Here is my card:

I posted an earlier version of this card last week, to show the butterfly made with the Tim Holtz March tag technique. I changed out the kraft layer in my flower to yellow and added the stick pin and some more inking. 

Here is a close-up of the flower. 

I have posted a tutorial for the twine flower portion of this layered flower. The other layers were cut with the Tattered Floral die. 

The shaped card was cut using the Art Philosophy Cricut cartridge by Close to My Heart. Thanks Mandy for letting me use it!! I cut the base card with white card stock and then cut the scalloped circle from Bo Bunny Barefoot and Bliss Word. The yellow layer in my flower and scalloped mat for my sentiment inside the card were also cut from this paper. I used snippets of Bo Bunny scraps I had in my stash for the butterfly and leaves. 

This was my first time at color work. I used the Berol Prismacolor Pencils and blending pencil. 

I went to my bead stash to create the stick pin. My former craft hobbies come in handy for scrapbooking! 

The leaves were cut with the Spellbinder Foliage dies, then crinkled and inked for dimension. 

If you're interested in participating in an online crop, head over to Scrap-Friendzy to see the great challenges that are being posted. The crop starts today with three challenges, and there will be 2 more challenges posted each day through Thursday. You'll have until April 15 to complete your paper craft projects to have your name in the hat for the Hippity Hop Crop grand prize and til the end of the month to be entered for the Girlfriend of the month prize and honors. I'll be posting this card as the inspiration for my challenge today. 

Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a blessed Easter.
