Just to say...You're Special

It's the weekend! :)
Well after a day off card making, cos my mojo got up and left again, I seem to have got it back! This time I found it in my newly mown lawn!

Anyway, I have made 2 fab cards today, that I am VERY pleased with :D  I can only post one tonight though as the other is for my friend's birthday tomorrow.

So this little gem is using LOTV's very cute Spring Swing stamp. Now I have to admit, when I bought this stamp in Harrogate, I had a very good idea what I would do with it, and Jen's Swinging Along had given me the inspiration for the hanging in the aperture ages ago. Actually, I just went to find Jen's card so I could link it and discovered she too used Shabby Princess papers!

I have made this card using a card blank I had already cut a circular aperture in to make a shaker card at Christmas, but the aperture was too small!
I coloured this lovely image with Promarkers (Warm Grey 2, Holly, Forest Green, Pear Green, Caramel & Cocoa) The papers are, as mentioned, Shabby Princess from Vintage Florals and Harvest Spice. The flowers were made by using a stamp I have from 'Stamp It'. I stamped them with Brilliance Moonlit White onto some matching paper from my scrap box and cut them out, shaping them with a tool I bought from La Pashe in Harrogate. The sentiment is also from the Stamp It set and is stamped in brown ink.
 The middle of the flowers were made by punching a 1inch circle of green paper (from scrap box again!), cut it into a spiral and wrapped it around a coctail stick, then glued together. (I'll try and put a demonstration on my tips page this week). I had originally flocked the middles but it just didn't look enough. I finished with a
 little cotton wool for his bobtail.
When I had put the card together, I realised the back of the bunny wasn't too pretty so I put it onto my light box and used a black fineliner to draw the details on the back, which I then coloured in too.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:
Totally Gorjuss - Fluffy
A Spoon Full Of Sugar - All Creatures Great And Small
