Bunny Hugs for three challenges

 Hello and thanks for visiting!

Today's card is inspired by 3 challenges.  The Retro Rubber Challenge inspired me to use an old favourite from 2007.  I grabbed this set because of the Easter Challenge over @ The Paper Players Challenge.  The colours came together because of the Color Challenge over @ TGIF Challenges.  Please use the hyperlinks to visit these blogs and find your inspiration!

***  The Trix  ***

*  I chose the diagonal line on the Retro Tic Tac Toe Challenge - Die Cut or Punch (I used both :)  Layers and My Choice - Colouring Tools!  I used a combo of Stampin' Blends Markers, a Blender Pen and Sponge Daubers, because I think we all need to use what we have! 

*  The Blushing Bride 4 1/4" x 5 1/2" card base has a 4" x 5 1/4" layer of Blushing Bride, *Trix, distress the edges a bit to add a bit of dimension.  I thought the Blushing Bride tag needed a little something so I embossed it with the Raindrops Embossing Folder, #160554.    

*  Stamp the bunny scene using the wood mount Bunny Hugs stamp set with Memento Black Ink.  Colour the basket with Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Marker, #154887.  The eggs and flowers are coloured with a Blender Pen, #102845 by picking up ink from the Blushing Bride, Highland Heather and Pear Pizzaz ink pad.  (I stamped the flowers with Pear Pizzazz).  Use a Sponge Dauber, #133773 to apply a bit of blushing bride ink to the bunny's belly.

*  Die cut the bunny scene with a Scalloped Contour Die, #155560 and adhere to the card with dimensionals.  Add the stamped Easter greeting with dimensionals and embellish with Rhinestone Basic Jewels coloured with Highland Heather Stampin' Blends Marker.
