Curved Rectangle Easel Card

Morning peeps. The sun is trying it's best to shine today. I am shouting encouragement, let's hope it works. I have tried something slightly different today in the shape of my card, different for me anyhow. I have made easel cards before but never using a die cut.


Front View
Slightly from the side
The stamped image is "Bunnies Together" CL071 Milton & Co Wild Rose Studio. The colouring medium is Promarkers. The sentiment "Happy Easter" stamp is from Personal Impressions 289 AA. The image and sentiment edges have been stippled with "Tattered Rose" DI using Ink Dusters. Main card & mounts have been cut using "Mega Nesties Curved Rectangles" S5-006 by Spellbinders. I haven't invested in the Grand ones as yet as I can not afford the machine and new Nesties at the moment. The ribbon trim has been cut using LR0101 from Marianne Design Creatables. The ribbon is from my stash.
I had a dilemma whether to make this into a baby card which it would have really suited and I could have entered it into one more challenge and not use it or make it an Easter card and use it. As you can see I choose the latter.
I am entering this for:-
Hope the sun is shining where you are. Thank you for looking.
Hugs
Cathy
