Celebrate His Love - Easter

Although the "official" first day of spring was March 20, I always think of Easter as the beginning of spring. Easter falls on April 17 this year and while I was making my family's Easter cards, I came upon a frame die that I thought would work for my simple scene at Double Trouble Challenge #107 - and it had two bunnies!

Double Trouble Challenges are always comprised of three "Things":

Thing 1 (required): Trouble Maker has asked us to watch a YouTube video. Click HERE to see it. Cute - right? We're hoping you are inspired to create a simple scene using the KISS method. (Keep ISimple, Stamper.) An Easter theme is not required but you are free to use Easter if you wish. All you really need is a simple scene to earn a chance in our random draw.

Thing 2 (optional): Double Dare is suggesting we partner with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #541. Isn't their cupcake photo (below) cute? Check out their guidelines and if you link your card to their challenge, you will earn another chance in our random draw.

Thing 3 (optional): Twisted Sister is all excited about hopping down the Bunny Trail, so include at least one rabbit on your project and you will be eligible for another chance in our random draw.

A scrap of pretty paper provided the background. I brushed on a little ink to enhance the colors to resemble an Easter sunrise scene. The frame was die-cut from purple cardstock and adhered to the scene panel. I wanted the bunnies to stand out so using the original die I cut just the rabbits from a tiny scrap of white cardstock, added eyes, touched up the nose and ears with a pink marker then overlaid them onto the purple die-cut panel. To finish, I adhered the completed panel to a white card base and added a sentiment. As is customary, I decorated the inside of the card with additional coordinating paper.

We welcome you to our biweekly
DTC107 challenge and hope you will link up with CIC541, too.

Stamp: Computer generated sentiment
Inks: Stampin' Up! Highland Heather & Crushed Curry
Cardstock: SU! Basic White & Pale Plum
Paper: Lavinia (scraps from stash)
Die: RCD (Forest Scene)
