Hi everyone!  I love the challenge this week on the CAS-ual Friday blog!  If you have time be sure to stop on over and check it out!  Here is the link for the challenge.  The challenge this week was to create a clean & simple card based on a song.  With Easter being only a week away I've had this song on my mind-
Here comes Peter Cottontail
Hoppin' down the bunny trail,
Hippity hoppity,
Easter's on its way

There's more to the song, but I just posted the first few lines.  Actually ever since I made my card I've been singing this song.  I began making my card by stamping my bunny image and then I stamped the image again onto some scrap blue designer series paper.  I used the paper piecing technique for the bunny's dress and the Easter basket.  If you are not sure what the paper piecing technique is you will find a great tutorial here.  The rest of the bunny was colored using my SU markers.  I left the bunny white and I simply colored ears, shoes, eggs in the basket, and the bow on the basket.

I used my scallop border punch along the dsp towards the bottom of my card.  I finished my card using pleated ribbon with twine tied on top of it.  I decided to thread my twine through my button and then tie it off with a bow and then I stamped the Easter sentiment.

Thanks so much for visiting!
