Bronte the Easter Bunny


     The universe just seemed to be conspiring against me when I set out to make this card.  I wasn't happy with how the papers were going together so I set out to fix it.  My crafty space is the kitchen table with the computer right next to it.  Well everybody decided they needed to get on the computer and right in my way.  Once they finally all cleared out and I could get to the table my mojo had taken a hike.  So this one is pretty plain and simple.
     Our theme this week at Mo's Digital Pencil courtesy of our lovely Anja is "E is for....".  My card has an "Easter" theme, some "eggs" in the basket, some bunny "ears" on Bronte, and some decorative "edges".
     We'd love to have you come play along with this weeks challenge for your chance at $5.00 to spend in Mo's fabulous store.  You can find this image, Bella and Easter Bronte there as well as lots of other adorable images.

How cute are those ears on Bronte lol This is gorgeous Tracy! I love that shape card...do you have a cutting file for them or did you make your own? You might think you lost your mojo while waiting to finish this but you obviously found it again...the papers & colours are beautiful.

My space is the Dining area which brings its own problems too :( When I win the lottery I will have a bigger home with a craftroom :) Then I will complain because I am not in the room with hubby...can't please this girl ...lol
Love the card and it all goes together perfectly.
Easter Blessings

It doesn't look plain at all. I love all of the wonderful layers, shaped edges, and borders. The pops of colour on the flowers and buttons look amazing next to the subtle BG paper. The image makes me smile...so fun and so beautifully coloured. Lots of yumme details :)

Lisa M said...

This is your version of plain and simple?? Okie dokie then...LOL. It's fantastic with the curving base and the papers and coloring match superbly!!
Maybe the problem is sitting AT the table. Have you tried sitting under it? Usually takes the family awhile to find me and I tend to get a little more done. Try not to giggle though as they ponder your whereabouts...
