SC111 - Easter Wishes

Why can't I sleep? I hate colds. They seriously suck! Both my kids have a cold right now as do I. The kids are coughing and so I worry, so I can't sleep right now. I am just sitting here, nose drippy, and listening to them cough while I stamp. I gave them medicine already, but it does not seem to be helping. *sad*

SO, to pass the time, I decided to be a sketch challenge stalker and get my card in real nice and early today! This card uses a set called "Bunny Hugs" by Stampin' Up! It is in the Spring Mini catalog. I absolutely fell in love with this little guy and just had to get this set. I watercolor glazed the eggs and ears and noses. By this, I mean, I colored with my watercolor wonder crayons and then I used my gelly roll glaze pen to blend the color. The aforementioned parts are shiny like they are embossed, in real life. I paper pierced the sides and then decided it would look cool with brads, so I threw in a brad every other hole and I love how that works. On the right side, it is pierced just the same as the left, even though you cannot really see it right. The little pom pom tails were an afterthought, but I think they work! This is the first time I have done the sketch challenge in a long time and I had lots of fun!!!
