Some Bunny Loves You

Being a young boy interested in things like Pokemon cards and watching hockey on TV, my 6 year-old son Phoenix doesn't take much interest in my craft, but every once in a while he'll find a stamp he LOVES, and he'll have to have it. He actually quasi-shoplifted this bunny stamp (he ran out of the store to show me when I was trying to leave) and with tears in his eyes he said, "Mommy, can I have this stamp, PLEASSSSSSSE.... The bun-bun is SO cute!" Being a good mother I said "no," but we put it on hold to see if he still wanted it in a couple of days... He did, and even decided it was worth raiding his piggy bank for..

My issue with Easter stamps is they're cute, but I don't give Easter cards.. So I made this card and paired it with a non-Easter sentiment (using Karen Foster Snap Stamps).

Supplies: Paper: Making Memories (patterned paper), My Mind's Eye (brown), Bazzill (Black); Stamps: Savvy Stamps (bunny), Snap Stamps (Karen Foster); Ink: Burnt Umber (Palette), Red Magic (Versamagic); Ribbon (May Arts), Copic Markers.

This card is using the colours from the colour challenge at SCS. They are: Kraft, Green Galore, and Tempting Turquoise (SU!). I used a stamp set I have only used once, so in my opinion it was a very fruitful and productive day...
Notes about the card: I wanted three different colours for the flowers, but there were only two colours in the challenge, so what I did was (probably a BIG no-no) stamp the flower first in blue, then in the green, then I stamped it.. Voila! Perfect coordinating colour.
Now I'm off to finish my son's Valentines!

Supplies: Paper: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise (SU!), Kraft (Lasting Impressions); Ink: Green Galore, Tempting Turquoise (SU!); Ribbon (AC); Brads (MM).
