Hi, crafters! As you may know, I was recently back home in the States visiting family and celebrating my daughter, Eilís’, first birthday. We threw a small party for her and invited family and close friends to share in the fun! When I was a child I collected Peter Rabbit figurines, and that is the decor we chose for Eilís’ room when she was born. So, we thought it was only fitting to have a bunny themed birthday party.
To make this sweet bunny card, I used stamps and dies from Lawn Fawn. The bunny and the heart balloon have foam tape behind them for a bit of depth. I used a few shades of Distress Inks to create the soft sky background and to give the edges of the clouds a bit of depth. And, to finish it off, I added a few sequins for a touch of sparkle and fun!

I decided to colour the bunny using browns since it was going to be in the mostly white clouds. I was really happy with the way the colours turned out and I will definitely use them again for future bunny colouring. (Maybe the next time I use these colours I may even try my hand at no-line colouring technique to add an even more realistic aspect to the image.) A touch of glossy accents on the bunny’s eye really draws your attention to it and gives it a bit of dimension.
For the envelope I stamped the bunny image next to the flap for a cute accent that compliments the card.
