Easter Bear from Build-A-Bear

This past week I just happened on the Charlie Brown Easter special (which I saw years ago) entitled "Charlie Brown and the Easter Beagle."  Well, today we have the Easter Bear!  lol!  I made this Easter card for a little three-year-old girl.   She loved the birthday Build-A-Bear card I made her a few months ago so I thought she might enjoy a bear Easter card also!  I used lots of happy spring colors, some of which were scraps on my stampin' desk, like the punched flowers!

The bear is cut from Close to Cocoa cardstock and the clothes and shoes from the tiny patterns of Pawsitively Prints Designer Paper.   The rabbit headpiece, basket and eggs are cut with the Stampin' Up! Beary Hoppy Sizzlits Die.  Isn't that headpiece a hoot?!! 

The card base is Brocade Blue with a layer of Bashful Blue on top.  I swirled some White Craft Ink on the upper part of the Bashful Blue with a Sponge Dauber and it looks like very soft clouds, although it's not very visible in the photo.  Then a strip of Certainly Celery Designer Paper was fringed for grass and attached to the bottom.  On this are flowers punched with the Trio Flower Punch from various cardstocks and DSP.  Stems were drawn with the Certainly Celery Stampin' Write Marker.
