Artful Legacy Easter Bunny Card

This week for my projects for the Artful Legacy Design Team, I chose to use the stamp AG401, Bunny With Flowers. He is just so cute sitting in the grass near the daffodils, I had to make 2 things with him.
I made an Easter card and a belly band card that holds a treat.

First up is the card. Its a 5 by 5 inch square. Made with some older cardstock that I had in a pretty periwinkle type of purple. The patterned paper I have also had for some time. Its from Paper Pizazz and called Easter Eggs, although to me it looks like jelly beans.
Pink Cardstock is from Stampin Up, white is from PTI, as I love that white when I am going to color with my Copics. I edged the image with a blue chalk ink cats eye.
The pansy border punch and the butterflies are all Martha Stewart. I like to adhere the butterflies only in the middle and then bend the wings so it gives the card a 3-D look and makes them "fly". I have also used Stardust Stickles on the tail and the butterflies.
A peek at the inside shows more of the jelly bean paper and pansy punch. The sentiment is stamped in Melon Mambo ink from Stampin UP and says "Somebunny Loves You". That stamp is from Great Impressions.
Ribbon is from Michaels and is a pretty watermelon pink color.
The next card is a treat holder. I saw this tutorial on SCS and thought it was so cute. This bunny was done in grey tones, and adhered to a belly band made to go around the card. I made it with the patterned paper.
When you slide it off, the small 3 1/2 square opens up to reveal a place for setiment on the left side and a treat on the right. A tea bag would be nice, or a Ghiradelli Square would fit perfectly.

A close up of this cutey!!!

A view of the inside~
The sentiment is from Artful Legacy. Punch is Doily Lace from MS. Cardstock is Stampin Up. Ribbon unknown.
