Bunny Selfies

Hi and welcome!  It is so nice to have time to make a card for a couple of challenges!  The last few weeks have been hectic and once I get my DT commitments out of the way, actually sitting down to make a card for fun has seemed too much like hard work!  But this weekend I got a few hours to just play and I put together this card using the latest sketch at MFT Stamps as well as the colors from Color Throwdown.

When I saw the sketch, I immediately thought of a window, but discovered I don't have any window dies!  Shock, horror!  So I then thought of polaroids and fortunately I do have the Precious Polaroids set so I put it to work, along with my NBUS set Somebunny.  I colored the little rabbits in the challenge colors and white-embossed part of the sentiment onto black and the rest was stamped onto the polaroid frame.

To keep the polaroids from looking too messy with them being angled, I backed them with some Soft Stone cardstock cut slightly larger that the cut-out.

The three frames with the bunnies in are adhered directly to the grey panel and the sentiment frame is popped up on foam tape.

The card was finished with a few clear sequins.

Thanks for visiting!
