An Egg and a Bunny

 I'm already moving onto Easter Mode -  got the Valentines done and a few St. Pats, so now onto the eggs and bunnies!

I found the smooshed egg die cut in my Easter box (I used it for something last year I think? and had made more than I needed).  I had die cut the egg out of water color paper.  I had rubbed Kitsch Flamingo and Frayed Burlap Distress inks on my craft mat, spritzed with water and pressed the egg onto the mat to soak up the colors.

The bunny is a new purchase - Bunny Games from Tim Holtz/Sizzix.  The bunny is popped up on foam dots and 'sitting' on the sentiment strip.
The sentiment is from a retired Waltzingmouse set and I added two enamel dots to the strip.

I created this card for the following challenges:

I cased one of Jay_Bee's cards

I'm a sucker for a cute bunny and this one is adorable! Love how he's casually perched on the sentiment banner. Fabulous card, Julia! Thanks so much for playing along at Just Us Girls!

Oh wow! I love your cute bunny, but the star of the show is that speckled egg - just awesome. I know if I tried that, it would be a complete mess!

Oh what a fun bunny & pretty egg!

Truely a fun speckled egg and super cute bunny. Great colors to inspire this card as they work so well together for your speckled egg.
