SSSC151.....Happy Easter

Good Morning Peeps!!!
It is Sunday which means it's time for another Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge.

Here is the SWEET sketch Karen has for us this week:

I know it may seem like I am pushing the holidays here to be doing Easter cards already, but I am loving this set, Stampin Up's Everybunny.
I paired it up again with some of the Everyday Enchantment DSP. The image is stamped with black stazon onto some confetti cream card stock. I then colored it using a water brush and ink pads. I used crumb cake for the bunny, some calypso coral for ears, cheeks and little scarf. The cracked egg is colored lightly with some baja breeze. I used som crystal effects on the egg shell, altho it is not very noticeable.
The little sentiemnt is from the same set I just had to stamp it on top of itself and leave of a bit of it. I used a 1" circle and 1-1/4" circle punches to punch out the sentiment

I used a bit of baja breeze pleated ribbon across the top and used some sticky tape to attach it.
The striped piece of DSP is matted with some lucky limeade card stock and then embossed with the square lattice EF. I did space the two strips apart but after the piece was embossed it looked like a solid piece, so I added the "rick-rack".
I punched a small flower with one of the itty bitty punches and added a brad and attached it to the base of the egg. I added some silver brads to the corners to finish it off.

I hope you can find some time to play along with us this week, I would love to see what you come up with, create a card or scrapbook page with this sketch and then go to Karen's blog and link up your project for all of us to see.

OK, let's see what the rest of the Sweet Sunday Sketch Team, and Guest Designer has in store for us this week:
