My First Challenge (s)!

So today we have a tag that I created for an online Blog Challenge, Simon Says Stamp and Show ... a Tag! and also their Anything Goes Challenge, Simon Says ,,,,,,, Anything Goes !! :-)  .  I have always wanted to submit an entry to one of these things, so I thought, why not?

First off, thanks to The Graphics Fairy at for the free graphic of the bunny. She has tons of free graphics you can use--check out her site!!

I printed the bunny on Stampin' Up! vanilla cardstock, then again on regular copy paper. I cut the bunny out from the copy paper and used that to mask the bunny on the cardstock. I was then free to color the tag with Distress Ink. Once I removed the mask, the bunny just popped off the paper, so I left him alone.

I then added a distressed piece of fence from Tim Holtz' On The Fence die, two tea roses made with Tim Holtz' Tattered Pincone die, some Tim Holtz baubles, a Prima Walnut Blossom branch, some SU chantilly lace ribbon, and the Happy Easter sentiment, which I printed out from the computer and aged with Distress ink.

What do you think?
