Easter Card with Rustic Feel

    I haven't planned to make many Easter cards, but one or two would come in handy. There are so many gorgeous cards out there with the sweetest of bunnies and the softest of colors, so I decided to take another direction and go with a rustic look, using red, white and kraft.
    This image lives over at Meljen's Designs. I made a patchwork background using Maja Design papers. I colored the image with Promarkes. All squares have been machine stitched using red thread. The sentiment is heat embossed with white embossing powder - the stamp came free with a magazine. Some straws and a red bow of paper twine make up the embellishments.

    I enter this card into these challenges:
    1) Celebrate the Occasion - #104 Happy Easter
    2) Digital Tuesday - #202 Easter
    3) Shopping Our Stash - #94 Easter Or Spring
    4) Daisy Doodles Creative Challenge - #80 Easter
    5) Tammy's Scrapin Corner - Easter
    6) Stamp and Create - Fur or Feathers
    7) Creative Moments - #13 Animals
    8) Penny's Paper-Crafty - #119 Gingham/Checks
    9) Whimsy Inspiration - #57 Stitching
    10) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
