How adorable are these images!   Bunny Parade is bought to you by Hambo stamps.  This adorable, digital image is now available and just in time for Easter.  This week the challenge is to create an EASEL CARD using the spring colors of lavender, yellow, pink, green and blue! Choose at least THREE of those colors for your card. Bonus oinks to those that use all five colors!   Don't forget to use a Hambo stamp.

I must admit that I've never attempted an easel card because I thought they were just too complicated.  As it turns out, it is super easy to make.  I just followed the tutorial on SCS.  For this card I used a simple white base.  All papers are from My Mind's Eye Jack & Jill paper pack.  I just LOVE the colors and designs in this pack.  I colored my images with PrismaColor pencils and blended them with GooGone using blending stumps.  I also pulled out my sewing machine and stiched around the edges.
