Little Grey Rabbit

Well we have just had a 'cracking' thunderstorm here in Manchester, UK!! We even had hail which covered the street and it really looked like winter - certainly not June. Anyway, yesterday I felt like making a grey card - no idea why but just fancied grey and pink! I thought I would ink up this gorgeous Lili of The Valley stamp that I bought recently. Isn't he a gorgeous bunny!

Lili of The Valley's Challenge this week is 'Punch it Up' so I've tried to incorporate a few different punches/dies. The image is mounted on a Nellie Snellen Die Frame. The Lili of the Valley Sentiment is from their 'Dreamy Days' set and mounted on nestabilities. The Trellis edging border and corner are done with Martha Stewart punch. And finally, the little grey leaves are done with Papermania Leaf Punch. The gorgeous Design Paper is from V & A Hanoverian Stack. The beautiful roses are from Wild Orchid Crafts and I have added a little Star Dust Stickles.

Colouring: Promarkers
Rabbit: Cool Grey 1,2,3 and 4
Grass: Meadow Green 
Parcel: Blossom and Rose Pink
Parcel Ribbon: Lilac and Lavender
Butterflies: Rose Pink, Amethyst, Blossom, Star Dust Stickles

I also added a touch of shading with Prisma Pencils on Grass, Butterflies, Ribbon and Bunny's pink ear!

I thought I'd show the quick insert that I do for most of my cards as I have used the Papermania leaf punch on it and it also shows that it is a 'Birthday' card for the challenges.

And that's it really. It would have been a quick card but I have to confess I fiddled about for ages trying out different layouts and changing my mind!! LOL

I would like to enter this into the following Challenges:-

Lili of the Valley - Challenge 99 - 'Punch It Up' ends 8th June 2011
Ooh La La Creations - Challenge 81 - 'Happy Birthday' ends 12th June 2011
Scrap Creations - 'Birthday' ends 13th June 2011

Thanks for looking and all your lovely comments - I really do appreciate them all! 
Let's hope we get Summer back very soon here in UK!
Love Sue xx
