Bunny Hop

Hello friends,

Today’s card is for the Cut It Up Challenge with the theme “Hopping Down the Bunny Trail (Easter)”. Actually there is a story behind this card as it is also part of another challenge – so let me explain. As most of us are in isolation, lock-down, quarantine, etc around the world, an awesome group of ladies challenged each other to do a Covid-19 Relief challenge. What a great idea to lift our spirits, get us out of our daily routines and  do some crafting to help us mentally and emotionally. At the bottom of my post you will find the names of these awesome group of ladies and links to there blogs that participate in this challenge. Please visit and share some love during this time when we all need a “cyber” hug!

I created my card in the shabby chic style in my favourite colours, cream, pink and green. The cheerful bunnies are part of a new die set I purchased recently and I love them.  They are so happy and to do them justice I layered them on a pastel floral background. The doodling on the die cut bunnies was inspired by a card I saw at sarascloset. I  added  two layers of entwined green circles to frame the happy couple. For a “Spring” feeling I added soft pink roses, leaves and gemstones. I finished of with a marker sign and sentiment.

Challenges I entered:

    What an amazing card. I love all the details you’ve added. Those are the most interesting rabbits I’ve ever seen! I often wonder what the animals do when humans aren’t looking.

    Thanks for joining us at Cut it Up as we Hop Down the Bunny Trail! And Happy Easter!

    Oh Amelia, you’ve knocked my socks off with your beautiful card! I love that we used the same bunnies but in two completely different ways. Mine, more primitive and yours,shabby chic. The doodling on the bunnies is delightful and I’m so going to give it a try. I’m thrilled that we all did this challenge together. Thank you for your sweet friendship. ❤
