March CAS Mix Up Challenge! Happy Easter

Well, it's the first of March - and time for the new CAS Mix Up Challenge!   Susan is our hostess this month and here is her challenge:
This also marks the CAS Mix Up 2nd Birthday!! 
So check out the blog where there are prizes to be won!
 For my card today I used dry embossing on acetate, stamping, die cuts and markers.
Here's a close-up of the embossed acetate - I used a Chevron embossing folder thinking it's like a design you would put on an Easter egg!   I stamped the images onto the rectangle piece left over from die cutting the front panel.  I drew in the grass with a green Copic.   Then I stamped the sentiment on the panel.  All the stamps are from A Bit More: Bunny Blessings from PTI.  
($5 for this cute little set! just sayin'!)

You'll find the challenge details along with links to technique videos using acetate -  and the link up here on the CAS Mix Up Blog.  You have until 3/24/18 to link up your CAS challenge card!

I'm also linking my card to:


Stamps:  A Bit More: Bunny Blessings - PTI
Paper:  white, clear cardstock (acetate) - PTI
Ink:  Cocoa Bean, Spring Rain - PTI
Accessories:  Chevron Embossing Folder - Provo Craft,  Rectangle Peek a Boo Die - MFT, Freen Copic YG63,  Scor Tape.

Such a sweet Easter card, Julia! Love the color combo - especially love that you used brown for the bunny. Dry embossing a Chevron pattern on acetate window is so fresh and unique! You've inspired me to try it. Hideko xx
