The Greeting Farm - Easter Card

Hiya! Sorry for the quiet-ness here on the old blog... It's been a busy few weeks, with uni stuff, as well as my operation coming up very quickly! It's less than 2 weeks away now *happy dance!* 
I crafted last night, after spending the weekend down at my mums, again.... 
I started by grabbing this previously uninked stamp from my stash... She's the Easter Anya, unfortunately, she's retired now... I inked her up, and coloured her using my Spectrum Noirs (of course!) and fussy cut her out. I used one piece of patterned paper from the Echo Park Sweet Girl 6x6 paper pad, I just used the reverse of the flowered one, which has a cool yellow woodgrain on it! I stamped the sentiment (SU! Easter Blooms) and tied a bow using some stitched ribbon from SU! 
Here is the close up - 

I am entering this into 3 challenges... the first is the Sketchy Friday sketch, the Anyone For Anya anything goes challenge, and finally Simon Says Stamp Easter

I've also updated my store, so take a look, before it goes on holiday mode on the 7th of April

Very cute ... great card. I love Annmaree's idea ^^^ about using the ears on any old stamp to make it Easter-y.
