February SOTM - Easter card

I shared with you all back at the first of the month the specials for the month and the Stamp of the Month stamp set, Easter Bunny and said that I would share my creation soon.  Well, soon obviously turned into later!  😉   Having sick kiddos earlier this month kind of threw things out of whack for my plans.  Anyway, I knew the card design I wanted to make using this set.  I'm not real sure what it is officially called.  I've made one similar in the past, kind of a cut out card.  I used Hello Lovely papers with this card.  



You only have 8 more days to get this adorable Easter Bunny stamp set.  You can purchase it out right for $17.95, or with a $50 order you can get it for only $5!
