Impression Obsession - All About the Dies - Day 1

For the next 3 days, the Impression Obsession designers will be sharing lots of ideas for using IO dies!   You can visit the I.O. Blog each day of the hop for links to the previews. Make sure to comment for a chance to WIN!

This isn't a typical card for me for several reasons, but I just adore this bunny, and the card came together nicely with things that were out on my desk at the time. I cut the wreath from green cardstock then replaced the cut with a white one to frame the sentiment...


The egg was colored using Chameleon Markers - they're so fun to use on die cuts, especially small pieces like this! Love the gradient color.
