Happy Easter X 18

I made these cards for the babies in the NICU I work at to give to 
their parents on Easter.  As soon as I saw Melissa's new series 
"Polka Dot Parade," I knew I wanted to use them for this year's cards.
I bought two of the dies, to make my work easier.  During  
the February countdown at PTI there were many cards using
the bunnies with negative die cuts and tags, and I have seen others 
since then.  I liked the idea of tags and negative die cuts. 
 I  worked assembly line fashion using three colors ~ 
Blueberry Sky, Summer Sunrise and Aqua Mist.
This is also why this is my first post for the week on Friday ;).

 I am entering them into five challenges ~ 
A Passion for Papertrey ~ to use a negative die cut
CASology ~ Song 
(There are many songs that work for these cards ~ including:
Little Bunny Foo Foo, Easter Parade, Here Comes Peter Cottontail,
Funny Bunny and Bunny Hop ~ to name a few.)
Moxie Fab World ~ Emphasize the Negative
Simon Says Stamp ~ Easter / Spring
52 Card Pickup ~ always anything goes


I made these for last Easter. 

Supplies ~ 
Stamps:  PTI Take Three: Spring
Paper:  PTI White, Blueberry Sky, Aqua Mist & Summer Sunrise; Pattern Packs in the same colors
Ink:  PTI Blueberry Sky & Aqua Mist,  SU So Saffron
Dies:  PTI Tag Sale # 6 & Tag Sale # 7,  Polka Dot Parade # 1
