Hoppity Who?

Here's a Easter bunny? Easter who? or should I say Easter hoot?  Well, certainly Easter cute, that's for sure. It's an Easter owl, who wants to be your Easter bunny.  I had this adorable image from Queen Kat artist Sandra Caldwell called Hoppity Who.  I used some wonderful papers from Paper Temptress to create this fun card as Easter is just around the corner.

This gorgeous image is stamped on Neenah Solar White paper and die cut using Nestabilities.  The wonderful pink is from Pop Tons called RazzleBerry.  I then added two totally different types of papers both in type and textures to give an opposing look and feel to the card.  The paper on the right hand side is a wonderful glossy transparency from Hambly Overlays.  I took a small piece of a large 12x12 in Orange Bohemian.  I am guessing when you click to see the whole sheet that seeing this small portion is very surprising.  I just love this paper and I dissect it to use each portion in the ways that I want.  The paper used on the left hand side is the total opposite, it's a very textured and absorbent type of paper.  As such, I used quite a bit of colorbox chalk ink on it to add some beautiful pinkish tone.  This paper is called Ruche and is Yellow Crepe.  To finish off the card I added some adorable flat matte style buttons.

So, the little owl above wants to ask whoooo? is going to be your valentine today?

  26. Lovely papers Holley.

    My valentine is my hubby of 11 years ofcourse. Though he drives me insane sometimes I'm just glad that he is mine and puts up with as much as he does. And cant forget my kiddies although my wee one has his thoughts on someone else this valentines. *sign* so cute but that means his mamma is no longer his number one girl.
