OWH Sketch Challenge #51

I had a request yesterday to make a few Easter cards for someone, and since it's so cold outside today, it seemed like a good time to work on something that makes me feel a little warmer. {It's not working yet btw}
I used the sketch from this weeks Stars&Stamps challenge #51 found here. I used to play these challenges every week, but I've trailed off over time and I need to get with the program again! I used another adorable image by Sleikje that I've had for a while now and just never got around to using it yet. The image is colored with Copics, and the DP is Gossamer by Memory Box. The sentiment is done with a G Studio stamp and the ribbon is from my stash. I had to tweak the sketch a little bit to accomodate the image panel. This one has glitter on the bunny tail, so it won't be going to OWH, but the ones I do make for them will not have glitter on them anywhere! I also added stickles to the tiny flower centers, but you can't see that in the picture.
I hope your Sunday is going well for you. I guess I'll be running errands tomorrow as they're calling for "plowable snow" to arrive on Tuesday. That's the first time I've heard that description on the news! LOL I think it means we're in for some deep white stuff *wink*
Stay warm and have a great week ahead!

What a sweet little card! I am especially impressed with that perfect little bow - I never can get those right! Thanks for joining us in this week's OWH Stars & Stamps Sketch Challenge!

Adorable image! Such perfect paper choices and I like how you interpreted the sketch itself too.

When I clicked on your blog and saw a bunny, my first thought was that you were rushing things a bit. Now I understand the method to your madness! I'm not feeling any heat either, Carol. LOL! This is really adorable though. Sleikje has such sweet images! I want to stamp, but DD is having a fit cause I have not taken down Christmas yet.

Oh how sweet, Carol. The soft pastels just put Spring in our heads and hope for warm weather around the corner, no? Love this darling card.

I love this image, and the card is wonderful! Great use of colors! It must be cold everywhere today. Even here in Northern California, where it's clear and the sun is shining, it's below freezing today! The poor cats are doing their best to find a spot where the sun sheds a little light on the carpet so they can 'bask'. lol Think I'll go make a card using the OWH sketch. :-)

What a sweet, little bunny. Just a darling card.
Carol, guess what? We got 8" to 10 1/2" at my house. Really uncommon for the South. It is just beautiful. I will try to put a pic or two on my blog today.
