For my card this week I am using Bart Bunny by Robyn's Fetish, isn't he super cool?
Here he is;
I have used Echo Park papers again from the So Happy Together Collection.  I think I am addicted to their papers.  They are so bright and playful and I find it so easy to create with them.  I have coloured him with Promarkers and topped him off with some Crystal Stickles.  I have finally gotten to use this lovely Bosskut egg die, I think it worked well with this image.
