First I stamped the Crumb Cake cardstock with the Hardwood stamp in Chocolate Chip ink. Then construction changed as I went along and figured out what did and did not work. For example, I knew I wanted a sign for Happy Easter, I adhered it to the card then realized I should have sponged the edges. So I carefully pealed it up, sponged it and glued it back down. Next time I will remember to sponge the post too. I wanted pearls in the center of the flowers, but I lost an entire new package of pearls! wah!! Rhinestones will have to do, maybe this bunny has come from Vegas? Initially, I was going to use a punch for the hole, but it seemed to small compared to the bunny's butt, so I decided on the Circle Framelis, which would allow me to place the hole far enough up for the bunny's head to fit underneath on the inside. However, I cut the hole.... before I glued down the strips of cardstock for the grass. After trying unsuccessfully to trim the grass around the hole, I decided to line up my framelit and make another hole. Then I sponged it to try and disguise the indentation made by the framelit. I attached the bunny butt and then struggled with what punches to use for the feet. The extra large oval was tooooo big, the scalloped oval didn't look like fur, so I used the large and small ovals and dipped an eraser in ink to make toe pads. I thought that would help fill in the space left by such a small pink oval.

I wanted to tell you this whole story so that if you wanted to make a card like this, you'd learn from my mistakes!
