Happy Easter

Good afternoon everyone, hope you have all had a great week.  I'm on a mission at the moment, I feel my cards need a bit of umph!!  I want to make something a bit different, so I'm trying out a few different card folds, first up is this centre step card which I came across in one of my card magazines.  I had to alter it a little to fit in with my design for this Easter Card. Hope you like it!

We have a lovely challenge today over at 'Papertake Weekly', Dawny has chosen an Easter Theme... you can make a card for Easter or include something egg shaped or oval on your card, so I decided to go with an Easter card and this little image is just right for this card fold too... I had lots of fun dressing it up!

 I Decoupaged the eggs, you can see it a little in this photo

I am really pleased how it's turned out. I have had this lovely image for ages in my drawer, it's called 'Spring Bunny with eggs' from LOTV.  I used my Tim Holz Distress markers to colour it.  I haven't done any colouring for a while so it was lovely to sit and relax for awhile lol!!  I made a bit of a mess of the image so coloured a second one, and didn't like that either, so I decided to use the first bunnie and decoupage the eggs, I got this idea from Debby who uses decoupage all the time, her cards are amazing, you can see her lovely work here.
