Happy Easter Peep!

Happy Saturday All!

And a Happy start to Spring Break for me!  Hope you are getting some R and R where you are!  If you are looking for the Spring Coffee Lovers Hop, click HERE.
 I needed an Easter card for my mom and dad; I had yet to ink up this retired, but new to me MFT stamp.  It was perfect for this week's Freshly Made Sketches Challenge~

The sketch~

Somehow I missed that there was an additional panel on this sketch (sigh) but, as I really wanted to show off my new, gorgeous Lawn Fawn plaid paper, I am OK with it just as is.

The colors are from The The Challenge, which can be found on Lesley Croghan's blog, Always Playing with Paper~

I kept things very simple, cutting the plaid base with a SugarPea Designs Zig Zag Stitched Rectangle Die for a great finished look.  I colored the image with Copics and used the outside the box technique on the image panel then backed it with a SU doily. Some fine Martha Stewart glitter on the bunny/peep gives it that wonderful sugary look.  Some baker's twine and SSS sequins finish off the card.

I am also linking up to this week's Inkspirational Challenge- 'Just Add E' -E is for Easter, in this case.

And, I am linking up to the challenge at  MarkerPOP- 'Easter'.

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!
