Some Easter cuteness...

Here's another bit of inspiration for you while I'm traipsing around Europe.  When I saw this card design by Lori Heilig on our demonstrator forum I knew I just had to recreate it for one of my monthly clubs.  This month's theme was punch art and this little bunny was just too cute to pass up!

Easter card featuring the wood grain background stamp and sentiment from the Everybunny set.

Cute, huh?  My club members LOVED it!  The only part they didn't love so much was all the sponging they had to do to give the bunny dimension...but the end result was SO worth the effort.  Here is a rundown of the various punches I used:
Front:
Body - 1 3/4" circle
Feet - Large Oval (white), retired Small Oval (pink pirouette)
Tail - Boho Blossoms, Itty Bitty flower
Inside:
Head - Ornament, trimmed
Cheeks - 1/2" circle
Nose - heart from owl builder
Eyes - smallest circle from owl builder

To construct the card, stamp the woodgrain on a crumb cake card base using soft suede ink.  Punch a hole in the card front using the 1 3/4" circle.  Sponge all white punched shapes in sahara sand and the pink ones in pretty in pink.  Assemble the front first and then the inside.  Draw on toes, whiskers and eyebrows using a basic grey maker.  The sentiment is stamped in lucky limeade and punched out with the large oval and then layered on a modern label in the same green.  SO cute!
