More March Stamp of the Month - Simple Bunny Card

I love the bunnies in the March Stamp of the Month.  For a gathering, I designed a simple card using the little bunny in the set using a 1 1/2" wide strip (actually left over from another project).  

I made the polkadots with the eraser that's on the top of a pencil.  (A new eraser works best, because it is flat.)  I love it when you can use things hanging around your house for stamping!  Just make sure some of your dots hang off the edge of the page - and try not to make your dots in a row.  It just looks more random. 

Inside the card it says Happy Spring or Easter Wishes, from the Springtime set (the one with the umbrella and funny ducks).  I also stamped some of the eggs from the bunny set and colored them in with the markers.

Supplies Used:
