SSCB#8 Center Step Card

Hippitty Hoppity Easter's on it's way!  Don't you wish Easter was on the same day every year?  Like Christmas, Valentine's and St. Patrick's Day?  Holidays with moving dates create such havoc for absent minded people like myself.  I guess what threw me about Easter this year is that it's in March!    Just wait until next year when it's on April 20.  Better get hopping and get those Easter cards made!  

Today I'm playing along with the Serendipity Stamps Challenge Blog.  Twice a month there is a new challenge.  This time it's to make a step card - which looks so impressive, but is oh so easy to make!  You can get easy directions here courtesy of Split Coast Stampers.  I covered the front panel of mine with patterned paper and then embellished it with die cuts a bow, and a bit of velvet ribbon.  The little guy was stamped and colored twice and then layered for more dimension.

Oh this is too cute! I love the way you colored his jacket blue he looks almost like Peter Rabbit. I like the way you just let the bunny take center stage!

As always your card is beautiful. Cute bunny and I really like how you cut out the sentiment. It was so nice to wake up and check out all the cheery cards. It made me feel normal again! We are doing ok!
