Sending Smiles

Wow I can't believe it's Thursday again - one day closer to Fri-YAY! 

When I see a bunny, I immediately think Easter but I wanted to challenge myself to see if I could come up with something different with this cute Bunny Blooms stamp from High Hopes Rubber Stamps. I have a few friends who are going through some not so fun things so I decided to make this a card that will hopefully give one of them a smile when they receive it. 

I love when a stamp can be used a couple different ways. 

I coloured my stamp with alcohol markers and then fussy cut it. It was mounted on patterned paper and a piece of white embossed cardstock. I added a flower from my stash and some glittery gumdrops and it is very hard to see in the picture but the tulips have Clear Wink of Stella on them as well. I added a cotton ball to his tail - just for fun!
