Loves Rubberstamps - Easter

Hello Friends!

Easter is quickly approaching!  Have you told the Easter bunny what you want in your basket?  Well, our challenge this week at Loves Rubberstamps is quite fitting - Easter!   We have a fantastic sponsor this week - Sweet N Sassy.

I don't typically send Easter cards, but I thought that I could use this cute little Bild Malarna image, Mimosa Easter as a fun card to cheer up a co-worker.  I went with bright papers by Echo Park, This and That and Glitz Cashmere Dame collections.  I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored her with copics.  I then used the Spellbinders Large Oval die to cut out he image and she is framed with Spellbinders Large Scalloped Oval die.  I used a scalloped punch by Fiskars to add some texture to the layers of paper.  It is finished off with some lace, tulle, flowers and a button.

Copics used:  
Skin:  E000, E00, E21
Shirt/Socks:  BG11, BG13, BG15, BG32, BG72, BG78
Hat/Slippers/Pants:  E30, E31, E35
Egg & Bow:  R00, R21, R22
Egg w bow:  Y00, Y02, Y04, Y06

The inside uses matching paper to the outside.  The sentiment is by Stampabilities.  I added a bow and a cross charm to the inside to go along with the Easter theme.
