A Bunny and some Sugar and Spice


Last minute as always with my card for the  Simply Less is More Challenge, as the CASology Challenge cue card is Bunny I thought the two would go together for a sweet Mother's Day card.  I hadn't though about the colour challenge until I came across some lovely doilies and chintzy papers in my stash.  The bunny had been cut out to make my March tag for the 12 tags of 2013 over on Tim Holtz blog and as the cue card at CASology was "Bunny" I just had to use it, waste not want not and all that!  
 

The problem was making my mind up how to use my finds.  I started with a 15cm square pearlescent card and printed the Pink Petticoat greeting (Mother's Day sentiments).   A strip of Prima Botanicals paper was cut out  but it didn't look right just plonked on the card so I scored a piece of the pearlescent card top and bottom and fixed the paper in between. The strip was fastened to the card then layered with the Magnolia Doo Hickeys swirl , doily (Freebie) and rabbit.  A little bit of  worn lipstick DI on the rabbit and a little on the patterned paper, a rhinestud for bunny's eye, card finished.

Didn't think I would get anything done today but it's amazing how sorting through your stash kick starts you into action!
