An Egg-cellent Easter

Hi Stampers! I took a little time to play with my new Easter set, An Egg-cellent Easter. This card is 3x3 and perfect for tucking in a gift or Easter basket.
This basket below I created from a 6x8-3/4" piece of so saffron cardstock. Very economical and quick to make! Notice I used thin strips of the matching cardstock and ran through the paper crimper to create my basket filler.

Coloring tip: to make the bunny stand out, I used the barely banana marker just below the black lines, kind of like a shadow.
To make the subtle background I stamped the hanging egg using summer sun.
Here's what I used if you want to make these at home. All products are Stampin Up! and can be ordered directly by clicking on the catalog in the upper right corner.

Looks like you're on a roll, Tasha. Egg roll! Lol. Lots of fun-looking work there, heightened by bright color and neat design. Looking forward to May's COTM already!

Tasha these are fantastic! You are right that little card would be perfect in an easter basket and I love that you created your own!! That eggs look great hanging down, reminds me of the eater trees and the image of the bunny juglling the eggs is just so fun!
