Happy Easter With Some Sushi Dolls!!

Hello, my friends!

I spent some time today playing with a couple of new release Sushi Dolls!
They are called Bunny Boy and Bunny Girl,
and you can find them in the shop right HERE.
I had just finished coloring them up when I watched a great video by Dina for Split Coast Stampers.
(You can see the video HERE)

I knew these cuties would be perfect on this double twisted easel card!

First, I fussy cut the images.
Then I prepared the base and added my first layer of decorative paper.
These sweet kids are out on their Easter egg hunt, so there had to be some layers of grass.
I cut a variety of circles out of several papers, trimmed them and nestled them in the grass.
Don't they look like pretty Easter eggs?
I popped the sentiment up on dimensionals to act as a stopper.
I took several pictures so you can get a good look!

Here's the front view:

Nancy this is beautiful. I love your new watermark too! Working on one for myself. I also agree with your statement about chocolate - we all forget where these "holidays" come from. Grrrrrr..... Makes me fizz when I see kids with loads of Easter eggs with no idea why they are getting them apart from as another treat! Rant over x happy easter to you and your family

These are great cards Nancy and I love the way you coloured them, especially the girl's hair. That's a really good style of card too... me, I'm pretty much in a rut with my 6" x 6"... same old, same old.
I love your new blog look with those spectacular sunflowers... it looks really good.
