Just Inklined To Hop -Meadow Rabbit

Good morning, happy Monday & welcome to this month's

It's a bit of a sad hop as we have lost our wonderful boss lady
who has moved on to pastures new & we wish her the very best of luck 
for the future & her new ventures! 
We'll miss you Jak!
Our host this time is our lovely & very talented new DT boss lady,
Tammy & the theme this time is Spring!
If you're already hopping, you'll have come from Gaynor's blog,
if not, pop back to Tammy & start from there!
Here's my card

The image I have used is Meadow Rabbit,
I thought it was just perfect for a little Easter card!

If you're in a hurry to hop on, your next stop is our brand new teamie
Don't forget, as always, we have a spot prize for someone who leaves a comment
along the way. So be sure to leave some love at each stop!
Here is the hop order just incase you need it!
Dawn (that's me!)
If you want to know a little more about my card, read on!

As you can see, I made a little scalloped circle Easel Card
I used a Grand Nestie die to cut out the card base.
The CS is Dottie Card from Anne Marie Designs
I coloured the image using my usual mix of flexmarkers
& promarkes, then inked with Antique Linen & Old Paper
Distress Inks whilst still in the die.
I did this to the card base too!
I added the sentiment just under the image by opening a
text box in word. The font I have used is called Bunny. 
You can download it here for free!
For the easel stop, I added a chunky button which was threaded 
with button twine tied in a bow.

Here's a little side view so you can see the fold.
Don't forget Nicole is your next stop on the hop!
