Easter Card 2.0

Today's card is my second Easter Card, and I had a blast.  If I have not mentioned before -- I love to color.  Thus, I am appreciating more and more the entire digi stamp revolution!  The image on today's card is from Bugaboo Stamps, and I will be entering it in their Catch the Bug Easter Challenge.  

Again, everything about this card is from my scrap supply.  The base is a piece of Bazzill, and that is really all I know for sure.  The circle was already cut, and I thought it would work perfectly fine just how it was.  I decided to color the stamp with my CM and Bic Permanent Markers.  I guess at some point I will have to invest in some decent markers so that not to have the lines from coloring.  I kind of went crazy with the Stickles, and I used a piece of ribbon I have probably owned longer than I have had kids.  I stamped my sentiment with a $1 stamp from Micheal's.

Okay, don't laugh, but I just realized I am probably not thinking clearly when I color my stamps.   I usually color first then try to match up my papers after, which is kind of difficult.  Maybe I should try to find a piece of patterned paper I want to use and make that my inspiration when I color.  Just sorta thinking out loud.  Makes more sense though, right?

Here are some challenges I am going to enter this card into if you want to check them out.
