Oh I feel so bad when I don't have something to post for a while, but sometimes I'm just finding it hard to find the time to finish off my current project. Sound familiar?...LOL. But finally! Finally, I've finished this Easter card.
I've used a Magnolia image of Tilda with a resigned-to-be-hugged-looking rabbit called Tilda with Hanging Rabbit, from the just-keeps-getting-better Butterfly Dreams Collection 2011. This image and the rest of the collection are available from Magnolia-licious on-line store.
I am entering the following challenges with this card:

(Woo-hoo...this is right up my alley. I love doing this, but I think that's why I keep running out of time. ATS has provided links to 4 different flower tutorials, although I didn't use any of those. )

This is a side step card--I like to call it a front-panel side step card. I love this type of cards. I want to do many more of them, but...got to find the time!!! And I keep finding other new types of cards that I want to try...sigh.
Above and below are 2 views of how I decorated the inside of the card.
In keeping with the 'hoppy' theme, I've used this most adorable Bunny Tilda from the Hoppy Easter Collection 2010.
Thanks so much for dropping by. I really do appreciate your visits. Easter weekend coming. Woo-hoo.....I am so looking forward to this long weekend. I know, I know, mustn't forget the meaning behind Easter, but I am hoping for more crafting time...LOL.
