You may be thinking this card looks somewhat familiar. It is one of Jen's SFYTT sketches from two weeks ago. I really loved it and I wanted to create the same feel for this card as I captured with that card, so I decided to run with it. The recipient loves vintage and feminine, so I think it will be appreciated. Another reason why I feel so dumb is that this particular person always comments on how much she likes my cards, etc. If anyone should get a card, it is her!
I started the design using a piece of Regal Rose cardstock and ran it through my cuttlebug using the Textile embossing folder. I distressed the edges using Vintage Photo distress ink and a sponge. Two of the corners were rounded with my small corner rounder that SU! is currently carrying. I swear they get a new one every year. I have quite an assortment of different sizes, which I have kept because they still come in useful from time to time. I rounded two corners on the Vanilla base as well.
I have had bunnies on the brain so I decided to use this wonderful image from the retired SU! set "Tender Toile". I colored it with an assortment of copic and prismacolor markers, ink refills and a blender pen. I cut it out using my nestabilities as well as the scallop mat. I had a scrap of My Mind's Eye paper lying about, so it made it's way onto the card as well. I was so thrilled that this sentiment from "Thank You Kindly" worked so well on this design. That one stamp is why I needed this set. The others have come in handy, but I like this one the best! I added a couple of Martha Stewart pearl stickers, some satin ribbon and a button for the center. It came together so quick and easily because I have, basically, made this card before
I also wanted to share my spring decorating I have been doing. I have a bench in my entry way that I love to change with the seasons. I picked up these darling bunnies from Robert's last year at 90% off. They were sooooo cheap. I picked up quite a few other things, but I will wait to put them up in April. I had a lot of fun putting my new spring bench decor together. Can you see why I have had bunnies on my mind? LOL! My son said that I had overdone it; that the spring banner would have been plenty! LOL! I placed everything on a bed of spanish moss for an earthy feel. Thanks for fluttering by!
