Rustic Easter Card

Today I'm sharing yet another card with the chocolate bunny image !
I think I mentioned that I was inspired by that image in the sale ad
and spent most of the day Sunday stamping ;) 

I have a few more cards to share this week,
no chocolate bunnies on them, though.

I went a littel wild creating the background on this card
using several stamp sets, colors and even smearing ink 
pads directly across the card stock.
It is inspired by the watercolor florals over wood panel
look on digital scrapbook papers and home decor
items I am seeing a lot of right now.

The bunny was heat embossed on the kraft tag.

Easter egg eyelet, small stamped sentiment tag and twine finish it off. 

I'm entering my card in the current Anything Goes Challenge at Retro Rubber
All of the stamps used are oldies from Stampin' Up!
Chocolate Bunny - 2010
Easter Egg - 2000
Woodgrain - 2009
Itty Bitty Backgrounds - 1997
Teeny Tiny Wishes - 2009

I recently visited another bloggers page after she left a kind comment on one of my cards.
She designs for the Cards In Envy a challenge I've not played along with in quite some time.
I'm entering my card in their current challenge, Cards In Envy - no patterened paper .
I measured, my eyelet and twine are not a 1/4" thick ;)

Thanks for looking =)
