Easter skeletons??

So, I got these awesome stamps from Sugar Nellie called Skull Boyz and I love them! I kept looking at them and wondering what I would do with them. All I knew is that they were calling to me. Fast forward to a week later and I'm looking at the Skull Boy holding a sign in his hand and looking at my Michael's carrot stamp......skull boy.....carrot.....skull boy......carrot. Then it came to me!! Mask out the sign and have my skull boy holding the carrot. So, I set to work and for some reason I had a really hard time masking out that sign. But I didn't give up! I got that sign out of there and after stamping and masking I was able to add the carrot to his hand. Of course I colored the skull boy and the carrot with my copic markers. I had also stamped out another Michael's easter stamp with a bunny hiding in a flower pot. I knew I wanted him on the inside of the card, so it came to me what I needed my skull boy to be saying. Now, I want you to think of Elmer Fudd when you say the senitment I computer generated. He's saying "Shhh....be vewy qwiet....I'm hunting Easter bunnies". I chose to make this card into a gate card and the skeleton and sentiment are tucked under the brad to hold the front of the card closed. When you open the card inside is the hiding bunny which I decided to turn into a bookmark! I love that! So you just slide out the bookmark and you can remember this card all year long! I know that this is not a typical Easter card and trust me it's not going to very many people. Probably won't even leave this house! But for those of you that may want one, just ask and you may receive. The Easter cards that are going in the mail will be a surprise until I mail them out!
