A Hello Kitty Happy Spring
I wanted to use my Sizzlit Hello Kitty that Eva got me probably from a year or 2 ago, along with the Easter eggs. I actually used this die cut last year, but my son used it for his own crafts, then before I knew it Easter had passed.
So I mainly got to work first on die cutting Hello Kitty and giving her a hot pink bunny suit.
Anyhow, then I used PTI New Leaf cardstock for the base and some Spellbinders paper that I had bought from somewhere, possibly the Bazzill warehouse sale from years ago. The main problem was deciding what kind of paper to use for the rounded rectangle. Initially I considered a PTI bitty dot paper in light pink, but wanted something more contrasty, then ended up using the embossed lemon tart cardstock, which blends in with the green paper too much. So I don't know, I should have looked up a color challenge somewhere to help me out with colors, or else I shouldn't have glued down the green paper so soon and picked a different pattern. I inked the embossed parts with Antique Linen distress ink, but I guess it's not too obvious in the photo.
