Happy Easter Bunny doing the Happy Dance

Happy Easter Bunny isn't just for Easter, at least, not in my mind.  So here "she" is doing a birthday happy dance.  What do you think?
The first thing I did to make each of my cards was to cut my base; a piece of Mossy Meadow Card stock to 8 1/2 x 5 1/2, and score it at 4 1/4.  For my next layer I cut a piece of Strawberry Slush to 4 x 5 1/4, and for my top layer, I cut a piece of Irresistibly Yours dsp to 3 3/4 x 5.

Next came the bunny stamp.  I applied lots of stick-ems, to the stamp.
Next I inked up the stamp with my Memento black ink.  When the stamp is bigger than the stamp pad, I take the pad to the stamp, that way I have more control, and can see where I have inked.
This is the result of what my stamp and stick-ems looks like after I have applied the ink.
I removed the stick-ems (ask me what happens if you forget to remove the stick-ems?), and stamped my image on a scrap piece of 3 x 4 piece of Whisper White card stock.  Below is the result.
Next, I used my Big Shot, the Oval Collection Framelits Dies, (the 3rd die from the smallest) to cut my bunny.
I took a scrap piece of 4 x 5 Strawberry Slush card stock and used the 4th die from the smallest oval to cut the backing for my bunny..
OK, I'm ready to prepare my background. For this demonstration I used the striped 3 3/4 x 5 piece of Irresistibly Yours dsp, Strawberry Slush classic ink pad, and a sponge dauber to color my dsp.  I rubbed the dauber on the dsp until I liked the result, and then blended with a paper towel.  
Next I cut two pieces of card stock for my words.  The Strawberry Slush is 3 x 2, and the Whisper white is 3 x 1 3/4.  I did not need these to layers to be as long as my dsp because the extra length was hidden behind the oval framelits, and I'm a "save all I can kinda gal" from way back.
I like to use my Stamp-a-ma-jig, because it guarantees perfect placement, well, 99% of the time. Nothing is fool proof, right?
I put my stamp on my clear block. Lined up my image sheet and the clear block to the corner of the Stamp-a-ma-jig (black handle). Stamped my words on the image sheet, so now I have a pattern.
Next I placed my image sheet-pattern over my card stock, lining both the the card stock and the image sheet against the black handle.
Removed the image sheet, kept the handle in place, and stamped my words on my card stock.  Easy-peasy.
Next is just layering your card.  When I got to the Strawberry Slush oval, I decided to use snail adhesive to glue it directly to my card, and I used dimensionals to pop up my bunny.  I punched the flowers from the Itty Bitty Accents Punch pack in Strawberry Slush and Mossy Meadow and applied them to my card using  glue dots.  I next added SU's wonderful, easy to apply pearls, and all done!
