The Chocolate Bunny

This card was selected as a favorite for the Featured Stamper of the Week.
It was easy to make a chocolate bunny with a challenge that uses brown and knowing Easter is less than a month away. It resulted in the combining of two challenges:

1. Can You Case It? Sketch Challenge #110 (weekly):

2. Sunday Stamps Color Challenge #121 (biweekly):

A panel of white cardstock was die cut with a coverall die and adhered to a card base. A die cut tag was cut in three colors of cardstock and stamped with a bunny. The butterfly and gems were added and the tag was backed with foam tape. The banners were stamped on white cardstock and backed with brown cardstock. The banner to the front was backed with foam tape. The pieces were all adhered to the card. The inside of the card was lined with a panel of white cardstock and decorated with two butterflies.

Be sure to check out the CYCI110 and SSC121 challenge blogs!
