Inventory Challenge # 75 - Easter Bunny, Lamb

After a very long time being away (just over 2 months), I planned on having my card for this week done for Friday morning. Sooooo now it is Friday evening. I'm just a little behind. I didn't realize how weakened my immune system was from the triple bypass I had the end of January. I awoke to a sore throat Wednesday morning. It just wiped me out for 2 days. I am feeling better now!!

Our theme for Inventory Reduction Challenge #75 is Easter bunny, Easter lamb (feature an animal). I chose Tilda and Her Bunny as my main image. What is more "springy" than tulips along a pathway? I built a spring background using the Open Gate and Tulip Walkway stamps. I joined the walkway to the path at the open gate to look like a garden path. Then I added some flower stickers from Jolee's Boutique over the stamped flowers by the gate. There are a couple of Chicks, Tilda's Birds and Bees that I added to complete the scene.

The designer papers are from My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus stack. The ribbon is from a clearance rack in WalMart.

This is an unfinished easel card which I will finish up in a couple days.

I am so happy to be back coloring and making cards again!! Sure seems longer than 2 months that I've been gone.

Thanks for stopping by and looking at my Easter card.  Be sure to check out my team mates' cards too.
