Easter celebration over at A Spoonful of Sugar!

(Please scroll down for my Totally Ladybug Tuesday DT card)

Over at A Spoonful of Sugar we are celebrating with an Easter theme!  For my DT card, I used the super sweet Meljens Designs' Hello Bunny String - and it's super free to download here!  Here is what I did with it...

 

A different style for me!  I am always inspired by Paula of Flowers and Flutterby's - she has such a natural, original style.  When I saw this card here I just had the urge to do some doodling and I knew a Meljen digi would work well with it!  I think I need a bit more practice, but it was fun to do and I'm pleased the way it has turned out.  As you can see, I kept it to a CAS style to showcase the image and simply used Aquamarkers, the doodling and my trusty opaque white Viva Decor gloss pen to create teeny tiny pearls around the rabbit. I hope Paula approves!

You can see the other DT gorgeous makes here - go take a look, you won't be disappointed!

I am entering my card into Meljen Design's challenge to use punches, Karen's Doodles for Easter and Make it Monday where you can just share your creations!
