Blogger's Challenge - Sketch Time!

Finally! I am able to get this project posted! I got it finished this morning, but when I went to take a picture, my camera battery was as dead as a doornail! So after searching high and low for the charging cable, I had to wait for Mark to come home at lunch to locate it for me and then you know, it had to charge ALL afternoon! Sheesh!
Sorry you had to wait all day for it - but hopefully it will make you smile so it will be worth it! :)

Our challenge Mom, Lisa, gave us a sketch to work with this week:
And since I hadn't inked up this adorable Chocolate Bunny stamp yet - you are getting an Easter card! (And yes, the stamp really is called 'Chocolate Bunny'! SU! knows what Mama likes!)

I had a lot of fun with this one, but as much as I wanted to mutiltate him by chomping off his ears -that is the tastiest part - the card was just too "pretty" for that! Wouldn't you agree Diana?! Maybe next time.......

Anyway, I partially embossed the card base with my Perfect Polka Dots folder before layering on the punched Designer Paper, cardstock and ribbon. I had already adhered those elements together and added the brads to just that strip.


The greeting was simply stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla, punched out, sponged and then I added the pink jelly beans. It sure does look like Mr. Bunny is eyeing those jelly beans. I wonder if he's hungry?


Ol' Mr. Bunny himself was stamped on a piece of Very Vanilla that I cut out with my Big Shot and the Circles Die. He is stamped with Chocolate Chip and then the piece was sponged. Now, the ruffly ribbon edge was super easy to do! I just put Sticky Strip all the way around the back of Mr. Bunny and gathered the ribbon in little pleats, sticking it down as I went around the circle. I then added another piece of circle cardstock over the ribbon with Sticky Strip to make sure it stayed in place. The whole thing is attached with Stampin' Dimensionals.

So, he's all ready to go hoppin' into an Easter basket near you! But beware Mr. Bunny - you are probably gonna be a goner! Especially if you come to my house. :)

Thanks for stopping by today and be sure to check out the other Blogger's Challenge players by clicking on the link in my sidebar. They will have some fabulous creations for you to see!

I'll be back later on with tomorrow's Stamping 411 Saturday Sketch Challenge! Bring your sunglasses! :)
