Another Happy Easter .....

I decided to make another Easter card this afternoon (my 2nd today so be sure to scroll down to see the other one :) This time I used this fantastic sketch over at Sunny Challenges & Creations-


and the inspiration photo over at Paper Lovin' Gals-



I have to admit that I've been a long time follower of the Paper Lovin' Gals but this is the first time that I've actually played along. I think it's because I find inspiration photo's a but scary but after playing along with this one I think I'm converted. It was so much fun to interpret the picture how I wanted!! :)

Here's what I came up with  -


I was inspired by the bunny and the basket in the photo. As soon as I saw it, I knew that I would have to use this super fun, free digi stamp that I've had saved ages ago and then coloured with Copic Markers. (I can't locate the link at the moment but I'll be back later with it.)

The Paper Lovin' Gals are also having a give away. Here's the details -
