Candy egg Easter and Jelly bean spring

I just love this sentiment.. Have a candy egg Easter and and jelly bean spring (stamping up from waaaay back). So many challenges  are having Easter and spring theme I wanted to make something that reminded me of my child hood. We always had easter egg hunts! Even though I was the only kid!    I always usually got a soft pastel bunny in my basket and usually an Easter outfit appropriate for a  little girl which my grandma always tired to make me look like, but the truth was I was a tomboy! I wanted to dig in the dirt! But there was something about that soft little bunny that just made me melt into a little girl. 

So here is my card

The little bunny is an embossing template from Lasting Impressions, I just layed it on my paper and inked around it with Spun Sugar from Tim Holtz, and then I glued on a little pink button for the tail

I then stamped the sentiment in Ranger jet black Archival Ink. I stamped the sentiment again on another piece of paper and added double stick tape to the back and die cut the word EASTER through it and inked it up with the same spun sugar pink ink. 

and lined it up with the other sentiment. 

I inked up my folded card along the sides with the same ink and adhered my panel so it would pop up.

I want to link up my card to game-36-easter-colors  bright and fun, soft and delicate over at AAAcard cas challenge. I chose to use just one easter color... PINK.. those blues greens and yellow are gorgeous but the  soft pink just stood out  to me.

I want to link this up to challenge-60-cute at Addicted to CAS. I think this little bunny BUTTon is cute. 

I want to link up to week-217.html at Simply Less is More this is my second entry for here this week. I just love how they challenge you to create. You need to combine 3 past challenges mine are #1 Pink black and white. #55 punches or die cuts  and #194 little creatures

I want to link up to challenge-138 holiday theme at addicted to stamps.. you could even make a christmas card if you wanted to.
