SC163 - Technically it is Wednesday . . .

I am up way too late again . . . but I just wanted to do the sketch challenge and I really wanted to play with my new MFT stamp set (Eggstra Special Easter). I seriously am infatuated with the bunny in this set. He is so cute! His ears are so big!!! Anyway, lucky for me, Shelly posted the sketch early, which is awesome since I am having guests tomorrow and SO will not have time tomorrow morning to play . . .

Here is my card for today. I am excited about the fresh colors and I actually like the sketch. I used my cuttlebug on it too, which is like amazing since I always forget I even have it. Haha! I chose the close to cocoa and the blush blossom and then I needed something to go with it, so I went to the color picker page (see my sidebar) and it offered bashful blue and soft sky in different combinations with those two aforementioned colors, so I decided to try it and I love it! I found the ribbon, by cosmocricket in my ribbon jar and it matched so nicely! The card is so shimmery in reality. I will have to take a picture in the morning when the lighting is better. I would go on, but I really need to go clean up my kitchen because unfortunately the house elves are not going to magically do it for me *giggles -- I wish*
