Bunnie for Bells'n Whistles & SCAD Challenges

Happy Friday!
This is one of my favorite cards to date and I hope you like it as much as I do.  This year I had promised to participate more in the challenges that require you to use an EB image and have fallen way short from my goal so I'm going to pick up where I left off.  I have a lot of these stamps and I'm ordering more so I really need to get them inked and ready to share.  Don't you just love Bunnie and so appropriate for this time of year.  I've had her sitting on my desk for 2 months, waiting patiently for me to bring her to life.

The challenge at Bells'n Whistles is "Shiny, Sparkly Glitter!"  Ya all know how I love all the glitz and glimmer so just could not pass up the chance to play.  You still have time to join in so hop on over to B'nW to see the great inspiration by the DT.  They are an awesome group of designers and you will be inspired beyond belief.

I am also entering this card in the new challenge blog at SCAD

Card Deets:
  • Elizabeth Bell - Bunnie image from SCAD, Sampler Edition #3
  • DP Basic Grey Porcelain Pad - SU Old Olive for matting
  • MS Branch and Double Edge Punches
  • Spellbinders Lacy Squares
  • WOC Flowers with Star Dust Stickles added
  • Flower Soft Raspberry Ultra Fine for flowers
  • Gems from stash
  • Of course, colored with my favorite, Copics
Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope I've inspired you to check out some of Elizabeth Bell's stamps that can be purchased at Bells'n Whistles, SCAD, and EB's blog where you can purchase her digi's and start creating right away.  I hope you have the time to leave me a comment as I love reading them and then visiting your blog to see what's new with you.  Have a wonderful weekend!
"Hugs" Carol

I am sure she is happy to be shown so beautifully on this card. Your dp is so perfect with your coloring and love all of the punches and lacey look to your design. Good luck in the challenges.
