Sending a Thousand Hugs

Happy Friday!  It's Jeanne today with a card that could be for Mother's Day or any occasion where you'd like to say "you're special."   I decided to use the layout from this week's sketch challenge on Splitcoaststampers.
The focal image is the bunny from Carrot Patch Bunny. It also uses the flower from Sending Hugs Bear and Spring Grass.  I first cut all the pieces from white card stock which I then colored using blending tools and ink.
I originally planned to use just Distress Oxide ink and did so for the bunny - Pumice Stone for him and Tattered Rose for his ears.  However, I found that I had some regular dye inks that matched the patterned paper I planned to use so I went with those - Gumball Green, Pink Pirouette, Daffodil Delight and Melon Mambo.  I used a black Copic marker to color his nose and eyes.
I cut two panels using the second and fourth largest of the Double Stitched rectangle dies from patterned paper and white.
The white panel is centered on the patterned one and the grass is glued to the very bottom.  This allowed me to slip the assembled bunny underneath so he is standing "in the grass".
I used paper snips to cut the edges of the grass flush with the panels.
Next I made an A2 card base from white card stock and added a yellow strip of washi tape.  I thought this sentiment was perfect for multiple events including Mother's Day, birthday, thank you, etc.
To finish the card the I double sided adhesive to adhere the panels and added the extra flowers to the corners.  This is the type of card that you can make to have on hand and then finish the inside to fit the occasion!
