Easter Wishes Card

I was surfing around the computer and found a posting about Bugaboo's new Easter Digi Stamps. I have purchased digi stamps before but have never had any luck being able to use them with my copics. My images always bleed and looked horrible. My girlfriend Krista got me hooked on a new paper to use with my copics, "Copic Express". As I was colouring my new chart I noticed a huge difference and there was no bleeding. A light went on I thought that I finally might be able to use some of the digi images I had gotten before. Sure enough the new paper and a few hours to let it cure and I was on a roll. I purchased this new set of Block Bunny's from Bugaboo Stamps. I remember a card that my girlfriend Donna had made with six scalloped blocks. It was great inspiration for this card. I modified the size of the Block Bunny's in adobe photoshop so they would fit in a 1 3/8 square punch. I used my Gypsy and the Mini Monograms cartridge to create a scalloped square for them to layer on. The yellow base is a old piece from World Wind Cardstock. I then added a mat of Blue Bayou to my pattern paper which I found in my scrap bin. The other solid papers are Bo Bunny Double Dot. The ribbon is Bo Bunny too!

On the inside I printed another digi image from Bugaboo. I then stitched with my sewing machine around the outside twice. Once with Orange thread then with Green Thread. I coloured the bunny with my copics. The sentiment is from a Stampin' Up Hostess set I just got with my last order. It is actually the only Easter sentiment that I own. 

I was able to enter this card into a few challenges. The first one is at Stamp Something, it is a "Digi Challenge", use at least one digital item on your card. I then entered it at Bugaboo Blog Challenge, "Anything Goes", make a card with any of their stamps. I then entered it at Cupcake Craft Challenges, "Pink Polka Dots", use pink polka dots on your card. I used a pink polka dot ribbon hopefully that counts. The last challenge I put it in at was Paper Sundaes, "Stripes", I think my plaid might be a stretch from stripes but I though a plaid is made up from a lot of stripes so it was worth a try. I did try to use a strip paper but it just didn't work.

Copic Markers: RV11, RV55, YG25, BG53, YR04, Y15
