Celebrating Bunny Rabbit

Hi, Lois here today.  I have to tell you that I have fallen in love with all those cute little critters in the October release from CottageCutz -- In the Forest.  Today I'm bringing you a card which I was a bit unhappy with initially, but with the addition of a couple of elements, I am quite happy.

Supplies for this card are:

Cream cardstock cut 8 1/2" x 5 1/2", folded in half
Chocolate cardstock cut 3 3/4" x 5"
Cream cardstock, kraft cardstock approx. 3 3/4" x 4 3/4" for cutting ovals
Patterned paper cut 3 5/8" x 4 7/8"
Scraps of cardstock red, green, white, black
Distress ink - Weathered Wood, Walnut Stain, Bundled Sage, Tumbled Glass
Markers - black, pink
CottageCutz dies -  Deer and Rabbit Peekers, Tree Stump and Log for Peekers, Earmuffs and Mittens, Balloon - Round mini, Celebrate, Double-stitched Ovals

I began by cutting out the pieces from the Deer and Rabbit Peekers, the Tree Stump and Log for Peekers, and Earmuffs and Mittens dies.

I then sponged some color on the rabbit and stump pieces to give them some depth. I colored the inside of the bunny ears and the nose with markers.

I cut out the layers and die cut the ovals . . .

. . . sponged some ink for the grass and sky on the cream-colored oval and constructed my card.  However, at this point I was not very happy with the card.  It definitely needed something.  The bunny didn't really look too happy peeking out from that stump.  I had an idea about how to cheer him up, so I die cut the balloon and the word "Celebrate."

Now, he looked better.  Here again is my completed card.
