Easter!

Easter is around the corner... where did the time go?????
I made this card to send it to my DD for easter along with some candy I broght her on my trip to UK last week. It´s such a beautiful image... I know she will love this bunny and I´m sure it will steal a smile from her sweet little face.
The overlycute image is from Michelle Perkett, colored with my so loved colored pencils. The patterned paper is from Ginger. I stitched the patterned paper with black embroidery floss and added some glass beads on the bottom line of stitches. Some of these glass beads I glued them on the centers of all the flowers. The yellow flowers were cut with the cricut machine and the purple tiny ones were made with a paper puncher. I added some sparkling by gluing some blue and purple glitter on the blue and purple dots of the patterned paper.
I´m entering this card to participate in Michelle Perkett Studio Challenge blog were we are to use flowers and stitches, and I´m also participating in I love digi Challenge blog were we have to do something for easter.

Last week I was in Cambridge, UK. I went to attend a scientific meeting for 3 days. It was a really nice experience in every sense: the meeting was not a large one so it was easy to have good talks with people of great renown in my field, and share a scientific talk over a pint was something I never done before and I´m so glad I did! sleep in a very old room, and of course the city is amazing, with all that history behind.
I got the chance to visit the college and labs were people made the most important scientific discoveries all there at Cambridge: Isaac Newton developed his Laws of Motion (among so many great discoveries he made!), J. J. Thompson discovered the Electron, James Clerc Maxwell formulated the Unification of Electromagnetism, Watson and Crick developed the Structure of DNA, Charles Darwing formulated the Evolution and Natural Selection Theory... and so on... and so on... I´m so glad I had the chance to make this trip, so full of different emotions and wonder.
I´m posting some pictures to share with you, first Isaac Newton and the house in Trinity College where he was living
the Cavendish Laboratory plates
the amazing Kings College Chapel
the inside of the Eagle pub, where Watson and Crick anounced their 3dimensional DNA model

Another brilliant job on this card! Your coloring is so beautiful! Glad you found the gamsol to blend with. I usually use baby oil so I don't have to deal with the smell. We are in the minority of people who aren't using copics. I prefer the colored pencils since you can add so much texture & more with them. I really love your sewing with the beads! Again, that extra special touch!
