"Happy Easter" - High Hopes Ch#22

This weeks High Hopes Challenge is brought to us by our lovely Guest Diva Diana. She would like to see you make cards without patterned paper!!....Kind of scary isn't it?....I was amazed though at how easy and fun it actually is!!....I've had the flower I used on this card for almost a year.....I thought it was so Cute when I bought it ...but discovered it lost most of its shine on a busier type of card....here though...I think it looks great!!

Be sure to stop in at the HH Challenge Blog to see all the creative and Fabulous designs the Divas have made......Join in ...and you'll have a chance to win a couple of really cute High Hopes stamps!

The Cute Bunny I've used for this card is from High Hopes recent HOTP stamps and is called "Bunny with Gift". The sentiment is called "Dot Happy Easter" and is from an older release.

I used the SC219 sketch to make this card and colored the image with Prismacolor Pencils (oms) and Twinkling h20's.

The Bunny panel and the sentiment are both raised with foam pop ups.

I used scribbles, velvet flock and glitter on the Bunny tail and under his neck. I also used glitter on a few placed on the egg. Although it is hard to see..there is diamond glaze on the Bunny's nose and teeth.

Paper - GP white, Treasures and bazill CS

Ink - versafine black, bashful blue, mellow moss, apricot appeal, pretty in pink, old olive marker

Accessories - flowers, brads, pearls, lace, CB folders - circles and swiss dot, stitching

Have a Wonderful Day Everyone!!..........and Thank You so much for your Lovely Comments!!..They always make my day.....and I appreciate every one of them!!
