Chocolate Bunnies!

Easter is here ... and so is chocolate! This week at Card Crafter's Circle, our challenge for you is Chocolate Bunnies! Use the colour chocolate, or use a bunny, or both!  Our sponsor is the fabulous MelJens Designs. (If you haven't already heard, there is an incredible sale on)...

Ingredients: Square cardbase; Aqua Promarkers, Marvy Markers; Glitter Pen; Core'dinations Cardstock;  Patterned Paper; Buttons...

The image I have used on my easel card, is Fluffy Bunny. I printed him a few times, to 3D parts of him - his folded ear and feet are lifted with foam tape, and the bow is fixed flat, giving just a little dimension. He is coloured with Promarker Aqua and a waterpen, with glitter pen for his bow.

After adding the centre scoreline for the 'easel', I fixed bunny in position, and set on cutting out flowers and leaves from the patterned paper, edging them in the same brown marker as the bunny. I trimmed a piece of Core'dinations card and sanded the colour from the centre, leaving a frame of brown. I fixed it in place, then placed out the leaves and flowers... with buttons stitched in their centres. I folded petals on one flower to act as the foot to hold the easel in place.

I'm not really certain why the bunny's colouring is less intense than it actually is... the rest came out bright and cheery!  I have also entered this creation in the following challenges
The Sisterhood of Crafters - # Easter
C.R.A.F.T. Challenges - #149 Easter/Spring (11/4)
DYSU - #66 Friendly Critters (11/4)

Pauline, this is a delightful card. Those flowers add so much with their bright colouring. The little bun is adorable, and the 3-D parts is brilliant -- they make him stand out so much more. Super card, my friend!!
