Hoppy Easter Bunny Card for Cupcake Craft Challenge #80

I LOVE how these turned out! I had lots of fun making them for the Cupcake Craft Challenge. Their theme is "round and round" hopefully this will work. I saw this card HERE from Donna on the DT and loved it so much I made my own version. I went with some Imaginisce, For Peep's Sake pattern paper for my back ground. I used Mini Monograms for the circle cut at 3. The card base is cut from Wild Card on white Bazzill at 4. I used Doodlecharms for the bunny cut at 2-1/4 on smooth white and the shadow on smooth blue. Then I used Tags, Bags, Boxes and More and cut a tag at 1-1/4 and then trimmed about 1/8 off the end of it so it wasn't so big. I used a couple stamp sets from CTMH, first I got the "Dream Big" set and took the hoppy birthday to you! and inked up the "hoppy" using black versamark, then with the "Seasonal Thoughts" set I took the "Easter" and stamped on my tag. I inked the edges with sweet leaf and added a 1/16 eyelet from Making Memories I have had forever and tied the tag to the bunny's ear with some DMC floss. I also used some teeny tiny brads for the eyes on the bunny and some bubblegum ink with a sponge on the ears. I attached him with pop dots and threaded some dollar spot ribbon I got last year around the edge of the card. I also inked the card base with Mustard Distress Ink.This one I shadowed with yellow and used some American Crafts ribbon.
