I don't do cute!

Well I don't do cute very often anyway. It's not that I don't like cute images - I see loads that I like when I am browsing blogs, but I have very few recipients of my cards that 'cute' is really suitable for, and I don't make cards to sell. But once in a while it nice to have a go, so here is what I made this week.

I bought a few stamps in the LOTV sale last month, and one of them was this cute bunny sailing down in an acorn cup. I coloured the image with copics and cut it out with a sizzix label die. I then routed through my snippets boxes and found the end of a blue/brown striped paper that I really like, and some computer printed blue crackle paper, and used these to create a background. I then found a little piece of pale brown that matched the stripes, and cut round the outside of the die to make a mat for the image. I used a piece of dark green card to cut a leafy corner, (I have forgotten what make this die is), and the last of the blue crackle bits to cut out some flowers using a cottage cutz die. The sentiment is an old Elusive images stamp. Although I have a huge selection of it, I couldn't find any ribbon the right colour, so I used a couple of ink pads to add colour to some white seam binding, and tied a bow for the top corner. Some tiny blue pearls in the centre of the flowers finished it off.
I shall be linking this one up to Pixie's Snippets Playground Week 111.

Aw, this is gorgeous Kate. As others have said, even if you don't do cute very ofter, you sure cracked this one. Such a sweet image, and how clever to colour the binding to match.

Hugs, Di xx
