Birthday Card

Card I made for my MIL with her fav. colours.  Used faux batik for the branch in the circle.  Made the roses with the Spellbinder Rose die.  Spellbinder fancy tag for the sentiment.  Whimsy dies for the vine and branch flourish.  There's crushed glass on the roses and glitter on the butterflies, which were fussy cut.  Broken China was my ink of choice for the sentiment, butterflies, and faux batik.  The white embossed layer is raised on foam tape. 
The layout is my own, however, I have been influenced by other's that were similar so I am not going to take full credit for that.  I ogle tons of cards all the time, and so many ideas get smushed up into my grey matter, and before you know it, I've used a little bit of the past twenty cards I've seen to make one of my own.  Anyway, this took awhile because it is so detailed, but it was certainly a labour of love.  She already received it and said it was the 'best card" she's ever received.  So of course all that time and effort was worth it! I'm so glad I blessed her with my creation!

Funny Bunny

 Here's a b-day card I made for my daughter.  She's our family comedienne and so this funny bunny fits well with her personality.  Its one of my new digi's found HERE.  You can get a whole collection of bunnies for the low price of a single digi image.  So its a special grouping of images.  In fact, I wrote a little poem to help people understand the Terms Of Use for digi's and used the bunnies to illustrate it.  The poem is found on the Whimsy site HERE.
I coloured the image with the following Copics:
Bunny fur: E30, 31, 33, N2, 4
Inside ears and pads of feet: R20, 21, 22, N2
Bubble: RV00, 02, (E30 and N2 on the partial transparency of the bunny's face)
Gum Wrapper: RV00, 02, B16, 18, BV20 in the pink shadowed areas
Ground shadow: BV20
