Smile

Welcome to another What If! Wednesday Challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a sketch for you:
A sketch is a great way to start a card.  In fact, it's pretty much how I always start.  I decided to use this super cute bunny.  I guess I was feeling in need of some springtime.  
The color scheme was inspired by the purple of the clover and one of those little butterflies which was in my bits and pieces stash.  I punched a few more out to go along with it and added some pearls.  A little bit of the purple ribbon was in the stash, too.  But unfortunately, while making the bow, I cut a bit too much and now there is a different piece in the stash. : ) The sentiment tag was also in the stash.  It was a little bit too big, so I trimmed it down a little to fit my sentiment better.  I masked off most of the sentiment before I inked it up so only the "smile" part actually received any ink.  This is a great way to stretch your sentiment stamps.

Supplies:
Stamps: Repeat Impressions "702W Clover Bunny" and "8602W Smile"
Punches/Dies: Martha Stewart butterfly punch; Fiskars Apron Border punch; Verve "Flag It!"
