Floating Free and an Easter Card

Evening all, I know it is unusual to see me post twice in one day but I made a couple of cards using some new releases available at The Paper Shelter, I just could not wait to show you them
My first card I made using the beautiful new image called 
Little Acrobat Doll
I have coloured her with Copics, the paper is also a new release called Love Letters, the set is so beautiful, I used my Victorian Edged cutting blade for all the cutting, mounting and layering, although not too much layering as I wanted the base paper to stand out.  I have used the colours of purple, pink and green, I added some lace to both side of the central strip, I used my scalloped Nestie dies to mount the image on, once I had coloured her I cut her out and adhered her 3'd with silicone glue, I added pearls, flowers, organza ribbon, dotty ribbon and some more Memory Box die cuts.
Why I called this floating free was because I have made the image float free of the card as seen below, with the help of acetate. 
It bobs and bounces when moved, underneath the image is the sentiment which I put into the Memory Box bird cage, the sentiment is silver and says 'thank you'. 

My second card shows the new image called 'Most Adorable Easter Bunny' oh dear I do love her so much. I have used the precoloured version, and added a few embellishments of gems, bow, pins, flowers and stickers.  
These images and more are now available at
I would like to enter my cards into the following challenges:

 I received this award from my long time blogging friend Rita I want to thank her so much for thinking of me when passing it on
I also wanted to let you know for any viewers of Create and Craft the new CD release form Ooh La La is showcasing tomorrow if you don't want to miss it just check out the listing and maybe record it there are two shows to watch with Hayley.

I hope that you like my cards and have enjoyed your visit, see you later hugs to all.
