Easter egg hunt

 This image is called Aurora Easter Egg Hunt from The East Wind by Unky. I coloured her with Promakers yesterday afternoon including a shadow around her in pastel blue, the colouring took a few hours, the rabbit is decoupaged because a tiny part of his foot got cut off,  then I added some glitter glue, and then I began to design a card around her. Die cut her with Spellbinders Labels 8, and an ornate rectangle in purple. (I had a few challenges in mind here), I made a gatefold card in yellow using my Scor Pal, the metric version, I creased at 7*, turned the card over and scored at the same place again, I used DCWV papers, Easter eggs at the top and stripes at the bottom. This is a very small pad of paper (with only two of each of the papers left) and I needed two pieces to cover the length of the purple panels, so I covered the join with lime green lace, I love purple and lime green together! I added some bunny brads to 4 outside corners, attached some purple polka dot ribbon to the back and one side of the card, then attached the die cut centre panel. I added a bow in the same ribbon and some lime green pearls.

I found some freebie papers that almost matched the stripes on the front, and made panels of purple paper then striped paper for the inside. The sentiment is heat embossed in purple and is a Papermania die, another fancy rectangle behind the sentiment finished it off.
I think Aurora Easter Egg hunt is only available as a freebie at present if you sign up to the newsletter at The East Wind challenge blog.
