Happy Easter Monday

Happy Easter Monday !!  I've had the best time with Em and Alex this past week. We've bee outside a TON and Easter weekend was so much fun.  The kids go back to school tomorrow so today we are off for more riding and baseball :))  But before I go I wanted to share this fun little home decor piece I made using a whole bunch of Core'dinations cardstock for the Easter holiday .....

In our new/old home I have the fireplace I've been waiting to have for years.  It has this great spot on it where I have a beautiful metal easel for framed art ect .... I like to change it up every season/holiday and I didn't have a new piece for Easter so of course I thought I would make one !!

I started with a white Spotted base .... (I love these pre-embossed pieces of cardstock) and then cut a large bunny shape using my Silhouette Cameo.  I ran the negative image through my eBosser using a spotted embossing folder and gently sanded off the top to show the lighter color inner core.

I wanted to fill in the shape and have it remind me of easter eggs so I used a small circle punch and my fave colors of the Spotted Jillian dot cardstock.  I lightly sanded each piece and adhered them slightly overlapping each other from behind the bunny shape.  I raised the creme 'tail' using 3D foam and added some 'grass' along the bottom of the base.  It is perfect for my fireplace and just in time for Easter !!

TFL ..... Talk soon.
