An Easter MFT Sketch

Happy Monday! But not just any Monday... today is PI DAY! March 14th = 3/14, or in more mathematical terms, 3.14. Bonus this year... if we add the year, we get 3.1416. Happy sigh. 
Okay, enough math geekiness for one day. I have a card for the current MFT sketch challenge

I have a couple of Easter cards to make, and this sketch seemed to work perfectly for an idea I already had in my mind: 

On my vertical panel, I added embossing paste with glitter through a scraped paint stencil to suggest the stripe. My three part sentiment stands in for the star elements. For some reason, I didn't have this exact sentiment in my collection (weird, I know), so I had to print it on computer. My Easter birdie is grounded by a little bit of MFT grass. He's watercoloured with distress inks and markers. If I had a yellow distress ink, I'd have used it to sponge the vertical panel, but since I don't, I used two Memento inks along with carved pumpkin distress. 
Hope you enjoyed Pi Day... perhaps it included pie!

This is the cutest "bird-bunny" I've ever seen LOL. I love your background and the sentiment is perfectly done. Happy Easter.
