Here Comes Peter Cottontail: Whimsie Doodles

Hello everyone, Happy Thursday! I am making up my design team day over at the Whimsie Doodles Blog. I missed my last posting date, due to my little peanut being sick :( he still is not better, but hopefully soon. I am making it up to you all today by bringing you a fun little Easter card.
I used the super cute Carting Carrots digital stamp
 
My paper is from the Happy Easter collection by Echo park.
Sentiment: Scrappy Mom Stamps
Markers: Spectrum Noirs
Tim Holtz: Tumbled Glass distress ink
Doodle Bug Design: Enamel Dots
Orange Twine: Some Odd Girl
 
I decided to stray away from my usual A2 size cards and went with a square card measuring at 4.5".
 
Thank you all for stopping by and have a great day

I am so sad that my term is up as an ODD Girl, I have been truly blessed and honored to be apart of this amazing team. I treasure all the friendships I have made and know that I will always stay connected to my Odd family <3 This opportunity has made me a better designer and colorist and I can see how much I have grown from the experience.
I have been a long time fan of this company and it's owner Kristy and want to say, if you have ever considered trying out for this team, do it, it's amazing.
