It's one of those weird years where Easter lands in March, so even though it feels like it was just Valentine's Day it's already time to start thinking about Easter projects!  To get you started, we've got a great sale on an assortment of Easter and faith based stamps and dies this month.  Visit the sale page for the full list of stamps and dies that are marked down 20%!

Since I had Easter on the brain from working on the website, I pulled out the sweet Hoppy Easter set and paired it with a couple of the new dies for my card.

The bunny is stamped twice on the polka dot paper, then I stamped him again on the aqua paper and again for the striped bow tie and paper pieced it all together, adding some dimensionals to make his ears and bow tie pop.  The Easter wishes sentiment is stamped on a Flag It die cut and tucked under my big wide striped bow.  I added a little heart border to the black mat using the Scalloped Trim Trio Die Set, then accented with alternating aqua and green rhinestones.  The top corner piece is another die cut from the Flag It Die Set and I stamped the outline heart in white ink three times, then added the stamped flower, cut out and pieced together.

Thanks so much for stopping by!  Next up on the hop is Amy!
