The Easter Bunny(?) is Coming to Town

Another week, abother new technique attempted. Here is my first easel card. If I had known how easy it would be to make one, I would have tried this eons ago!! Of course, it's always easier when you have a great tutorial to learn from. Here's the link if you've never tried this great looking card:

On to my card! I used the fabulous new digi from Hambo Stamps, Penguin Bunny-digi. They're having another chlalenge this week, and all you need to do is use one of their images and make it an Easel Card. Go check it all out! The very least that can happenm is that you learn a new technique and get a fabulous new digi for entering!
My card details:
Image: Hambo stamps
Cardstock: Paper Trey Aqua Mist & Hawaiiian Shores
Patterend Paper: We R Memory Keepers Tiffany's line
Sentiment: MS Word cut out with Nestabilities Label Four die
Copics: 100 (black), BG10, Y17, YR02,YG03, BG72, RV34
The Rest: Stickles, Adhesive-backed jewels, Martha Stewart Grossgrain bows, faux stitches
At Crafts & Me Challenge Blog, this week's challenge asks for GLITTER. Mwahaha, I love to Stickle!!!
At Mami Doodles Blog, their challenge is to use punches and/or dies. I used Nestabilities and my Epic Six to cut out the sentiment. Their challenges run two weeks, so you'll have plenty of time to enter to win some of their cute images!
At Craft your Passion blog. they run weekly challenges--I just discovered this site and it is popular andinspirational!! Their first Monday of the month challenges are always Anything Goes!
I can foresee a lot of easel cards in my future, they really are very easy to make, and beautiful to display!!
