Some Bunny Special

Eeeek!!  I cannot tell you how cute I think this card is!!  I have two little nephews and a sweet little niece who is 5.  I created this adorable card for her for Valentine's Day.  I like to keep the kid cards simple and super cute and this one definitely fits the bill.
 The paper pieced heart was in my bits and pieces stash and it seemed the perfect resting place for this cute little bunny.  To soften the background just a bit so the bunny wouldn't have to complete with it too much, I used a small vellum circle that was also in my bits and pieces stash.  Do you see the little heart on her belly?  It is included in the stamp set and seemed like it was the perfect fit AND the perfect way to tie the card into Valentine's Day.  Two narrow strips of scrap patterned paper, a bit of twine and several sequins and it's done!  Then I had to finish the inside:
Originally, I planned to stamp the sentiment and the bunny image directly onto the card base, but when I stamped the sentiment it didn't stamp completely.  And when I tried to fix it, I made it much worse.  So, I found the rectangle (also in my bits and pieces stash) that was a perfect fit; dressed it up with some mulberry paper and a very little hearts and no one will ever know it wasn't meant to be like that.  Well, no one except you guys, 'cause I just told you.

Stamps: Mama Elephant "Lunar Animals"  (cutest animals EVER) for bunny and hearts; Sweet n' Sassy Stamps "Cute Critters" sentiment
Dies: MFT "Pierced Heart STAX"; Spellbinders "Standard Circles, large" and "A2 Matting Basics A" rectangle

Such a soft, sweet card! It looks like the little bunny is jumping for joy!

That happens to me when stamping on cards, too, or even with the MISTI I'll forget to wipe off extra and will get spots here and there. Lots of times I'll deliberately stamp on a separate paper and adhere it to the inside. I love how you matted it with mulberry!!

Thanks for joining us for our Layers of Love challenge at Cut it Up!
