Stamp Something - Easter

Hello and happy Friday.
Today's card was made for the Stamp Something Challenge, the theme is Easter. Make sure to go check it out and play along, Digital Stamp Oasis is sponsoring this weeks challenge, so don't pass up the chance to win some of these cute digital images!!!
I used the image "Rebecca Rabbit the painter". It was printed on georgia pacific 110lb card stock (available at walmart) with my HP inkjet printer. I colored it using my copic markers. They work wonderfully with digistamps. I sponged the edges with lavender lace ink and applied stickles to the eggs and bunny ears. The swirls were made with a sizzix die and my big kick, the flowers punched out with SU's retired spring bouquet punch and flower trio punch and held together with brads. Designer Paper is from SU. I added some stickles to it as well. The sentiment means "Happy Easter" in german. I have lots of family in Germany and since I don't have any german sentiment stamps, I decided to make my own on the computer and punched it out using SU's large oval punch. I outlined it with a lavender lace marker. The sketch was inspired by an older Mojo Monday sketch. Thanks so much for visiting my blog.
Oh, and be sure to check out the above post for a chance to win some fun blog candy. Only 4 more days left to enter!!

WOW! I love all of the details in this card! SO adorable.

Quick random question you don't happen to have a digital "stamp" of a laundry basket? I can't seem to find one anywhere. Thanks, Sarah
