Vintage Easter

Here is the first of this year's Easter cards and I intended a sort've vintage look using K. & Co. papers because they're one of my all time favourites.
The cute bunnies are a free image from Dover Publications to which I've added a computer generated message before printing onto white paper.
The background was coloured using watered down Whispers Brush Markers applied with a cotton wool ball lightly swiped across.
When dry, it was cut out with decorative edged scissors before being matted onto grey cardstock and then a slightly larger rectangle of gold mirri card.
A rosette of lace and a lilac ribbon continues the colour theme and a white Pearl Pen provides the decoration in the corners.
This card is my entry for ABC Challenge which is E for Easter and Kaboodle Doodle's 2nd Challenge as the topic this week is Vintage.
