Sunflower Friends Easter Bunny

I have a couple of fun Easter cards to share with you today.  
I've been working on getting a box of Easter cards ready for Operation Write Home, the deadline to get our Easter cards to our shippers is March 18th. 

I found these cute colored digital images at Sunflower Friends recently and have been having more fun trying out different sketches and making cards with them.  These images have also challenged me to use some different cardstock colors, I like that!   The sentiment is a freebie that Sandy was giving away on her blog in February, there's a bunny that goes with it too.   My layout is Splitcoast Stampers SC#300, the cardstock colors I've used are Via Linen Violet, Stampin' Up! Apricot Appeal, Papertrey Ink Lavender Moon & Mohawk Color Copy Bright White.  I used a couple of Cuttlebug embossing folders and a Spellbinders rectangle die to cut the image out.  


My second card also uses a colored digital image by Sunflower Friends, I cut the Easter Basket out with a Spellbinders rectangle die, printed another of Sandy's digital sentiments on the green cardstock and followed Splitcoast Stampers SC#314  for my card layout.   The patterned paper is digital and comes in the set and my other cardstock colors are Discount Cardstock's Royal Blue, The Papermill.com Light Pine, Papertrey Ink Lavender Moon & Mohawk Color Copy Bright White.

Fabulous work....when you have a chance could you give me some idea for which Copics you used on the skirt of the bunny.....I have such trouble getting a beige/yellowish tone....
