Birthday Bunny

Hi and welcome!  I'm down to the wire tonight, getting my card posted before the MFT Sketch Challenge closes.  I also used the colors from the MFT Color Challenge and that closes in a day or so.   I'm also linking up to the Texture challenge at Simon Says Stamp.  I don't do texture like the beautiful examples from the design team, but my stenciling adds a nice texture to the background of my card.  My card also meets the Make a Birthday Card challenge at Can You Case It.

 I actually had this card pretty much made on the weekend, but had to assemble it, which I did tonight.  I used the adorable Snuggle Bunnies stamp set, as well as Sweet Birthday Wishes for the balloons and The Whole Herd for the sentiment.  The bunny and balloons were colored with Copics and the Nightshift Blue card base was stenciled with the Large Grid stencil and some translucent embossing paste.

I think this card would be quite suitable for a young boy, so I left off any sequins and embellishments.

Thanks for visiting.
