It's An Easter Bug Card! Freebie Links

I've made another card for the My Sketch challenge happening over on Quirky Crafts right now. Mainly because I just loved this Digi Image from Bugaboo, who are sponsoring the challenge this time round and nobody had used it. Well, I should have used it, but I used the elephant instead! Well, it was hard to choose!
I've made the card a little larger than I usually do, it's about 8"x8" made from one and a bit A4 cards and cut down to a square.
All the papers I've used here were freebie at one time that came with Crafting Magazines such as Carding Making and PaperCraft, Quick Cards Made Easy, Crafts Beautiful and PaperCraft Inspiration and the yellowy flowery sheet (the first one on the card you can hardly see) was once a freebie from MadAboutCards. You may have to 'login' to download them on some of the sites, but it's well worth it! (If you do need to login, paste and copy the link at the top of the sites page, where my link leads, as it may be hard to find the freebie page again!) Here's a few links to some Easter papers...
Hope the links still work! (*MadAboutCards are sadly closing down, so be quick!)
I've 3D-ed the digi, (printed it out about four times) coloured with Promarkers and added a splash of Stickles Glitter glue.
The rabbit and Easter egg ribbon was from Crafty Ribbons. (I won them last year!)
This time I didn't cheat by edging the card with a black ProMarker, I actually used black card for the layering.
The Sketch is very easy, you can keep it plain or fill it with all sorts of embellishments if you like! I've added gems, flowers, an extra lacy bit by the ribbon and that cute tiny punched out rabbit and of course all those Easter Eggs! (That took me ages!)
