Cute Easter Card No1

Here is an Easter card I have created using a cute digi stamp from Sliekje's Digi Stamps, I love this image it's soooo cute! I coloured the bunny suit by blending Ivory and Caramel Promarkers and various others for the rest of the image, I lightly shaded around the image using some Derwent water colour pencils and lightly blended them with a damp paintbrush.

The lovely pastel backing papers are from Dovercraft's Back to Basics collection. I then just used some lemon cardstock to mount the image onto which I trimmed with Diamond Stickles. I punched a border section from white card using a Martha Stewart border punch then embossed the solid section. I used a Nesties Labels 14 die to cut the sentiment which I adhered to the card using foam pads. I then added some pearls to finish it off.
