Another level up! Happy Birthday

My nephew turns 10 on Thursday and I made this card for him using the Mo Manning image, Evan with ipad. And I had to make it in Packer colors naturally being in Wisconsin. Do I made my background with smooshing Distress Oxide inks of green and then adding some washi tape.

Bunny with Basket

I am planning to get around to blogs this weekend....this working is interfering with my crafting time. I wanted to post this card where I found an image from Mo Manning, Bunny with Basket that I colored up a LONG TIME agon and it was sitting in a pile. So I grabbed a patterned paper from TLC, Create.  I dry embossed a white piece of cardstock and then spritzed with Glimmer Mist. I added some flowers and flourishes and hid some eggs between the flowers. And naturally the bunny needed a pom tail. I did the basket in green that reminded me of the plastic ones that I had as a child.
