SweetStamps #110

Hello everyone-
Today and I am late posting my card for SweetStamps Challenge today.
I have to be honest, it's been a LONG 3 weeks. 
The boys got the stomach flu and Tommy had to go to the ER to get fluids and medicine to stop him from purging from both ends.  The feeling, from seeing my little one so sick is really indescribable. 
I just wish I could take it all away.
So in trying to get everything and everyone back to normal, my assignments had to take a back seat last week.  Now I am playing catch up and now getting started on Easter.

Which brings me to today's challenge this week. 
This weeks challenge at SweetStamps is:
This is Taylor the Bunny, the newest lil' Sweeties created by Jacqueline Hill.
I have stamped him on watercolor paper and embossing with detail black embossing powder.
I have colored this cutie with my distress markers.  Here is a close up.
I wanted to make a card for one of my boys, so I had to stay away from the pinks.  I used MME: Fiddlestick, because the colors were muted, but still had pastel tones to them.  I stamped the sentiment "Happy Easter", on a wood veneer. You have to heat set the ink, when stamping on the wood veneer and I learned that hard way. LOL
