Hug - House-Mouse "Jelly Bean Thief"

This card was made for House-Mouse & Friend Monday Challenge #262 "Anything Goes" using Tuesday Morning Sketch Challenge #445.  Picked up some Bo-Bunny design paper this past weekend and wanted to use for my first Easter Card and apparently House-Mouse found some jelly beans among the Easter eggs.  House-Mouse was colored with Copic sketch pens using a soft combination of grays and pastel jelly beans, layered with thin foam sheet, adhered on two oval stitched frames. In place of flowers in sketch chose to cut out some eggs from the design paper, layered with white cardstock, fussy-cut, adhered with 3D thin foam tape and used liquid glass on the nose and eggs for dimension.  One more cut of an egg from design sheet, layered, sentiment stamped on egg and adhered with 3D foam tape.   

On the inside of the card added a border with the two design papers from Bo-Bunny.
