Two for one with Happy Easter banner

So I decided to combine The Twinery Challenge with Papertrey Ink Challenge for MIM .
It's Banner Day at The Twinery with Inked Backgrounds over at PTI.

So, here is my Easter banner:  I started with Stampers Select white CS and inked it up with my blending tool and a variety of colors Lavendar moon, Lemon Tart, Raspberry Fizz, Plum Pudding and a little Spun Sugar by Tim Holtz since I do not have Sweet Blush by PTI.  I used Tag Sale #2 die to cut out the tags.
Then I masked the tag with a small circle(where I stamped the letter with Outlines Alphabet )so I could stamp my background with Polka Dot Basics using Spun Sugar ink again. I inked the edges with Rasp Fizz and Plum Pudding.

 I stamped the bunnies(Rasp Fizz and Plum Pudding) using Polka Dot Parade along with the die. I used 3-D glue dots for the tails and just started in the center and spiraled out until the dot was covered with Twine(Orchid and Blossom) from The Twinery as well as the tassels and twine they are hung on.

It was an easy process, just took some time but fun!!
And another close up so you can see a little more detail:

And one for the twine tail:

I think I might actually keep this project. It looks so cute hanging up and I don't have many Easter decorations!    Thanks for looking.
