Bye, bunny

Time to "get rid of" my last Easter card for this year, again a flat one and one with a really simple design. As I didn't want my entire exhibition to feature stitched cards, I've worked with a couple of digis and other things, too. 
And while searching through my stash, I decided I absolutely have to use those cute little bunnies from scribbles designs
However, I couldn't decide on what colours to use for painting the Easter eggs :)
As you see, I've coloured them in shades of yellow, purple and blue. Since I wanted to include all of them in one card, that meant using the longitudinal shape I'm not quite fond of. I find it a little too long for the majority of my projects, and so I basically have a couple of card bases in my stash that are just waiting for a moment like this. 
Arranging the three images on the unpleasant shape was another task I struggled with. I wanted the card to look a little playful and not mathematical, but no matter how I flipped the images they were either exceedinng the base of the card or making it look really "blah".
In the end, I decided to line them up straight vertically, but leave space for a little horizontal twist. 
With the colourful eggs, I tried to pick a neutral, but not too boring background paper. After numerous tries, this one featuring pastel leafs made the race. 
To distinguish the bunnies from the background, I used thick cardboard that would match the colour of the eggs. However, as the height of the card was lmited, only a tiny strip of cardboard is visible around the coloured mages.
