Happy Easter Card...

Hello all!  Hope everyone is having a good Friday!  I made a card to post yesterday, but my laptop crapped out on me.  I don't even know what happened.  It's only 2 years old...granted I had problems early on with it anyway.  I'm back to using my old laptop until I can get the other one fixed.  I don't even know how old this one is....I guess it's about 4-5 years old.  I had it about 2-3 years before I got the new one.  Anywho...

So I'm just going to jump right in there and post my card.  I made it for the Cricut Cardz Challenge #65 ... make a 9"x4" card.  I really like the way this card turned out.  It's fun and cute!!!

~Cartridge: Stretch Your Imagination - Bunny w/ eggs 8.5" in height.  "Happy Easter" tag - 1.18" in height.
~Paper: CTMH Best Friends Forever paper pack.
~Stamp: CTMH Holiday Hoopla - "Happy Easter" & Peachy Keen Stamp Funshine Face Parts - Bunny's eye
~Ink: CTMH ink - Twilight, Garden Green, Goldrush and Hollyhock
~Brads: CTMH - Twilight, Garden Green and Hollyhock
~Stickles: Pink
~Ribbon: CTMH Ribbon Rounds - Twilight
~Embossing: Cuttle Bug folders - D'Vine Swirl and Swiss Dots

For the orange paper in background...to get that crinkled effect, I wet the paper, crumpled it, then smoothed it out and let it air dry on the table.  Then I sponged Goldrush ink onto it.
Like my pink stickles?  For the bunny's tail I used CTMH white daisy Sassy Strands.
The blue eggs I used the Swiss Dots folder in my cuttle bug then put stickles over it.
I inked my swirls just slightly with Hollyhock ink to help it stand out more.
Inside of card I stamped some eggs.
