Hello and welcome to the Share the Love Blog Hop! The idea of this event is to make a card and send it to someone you love.

For my card I used the new Some Bunny stamp set to create a little scene using one of the bunnies. I love the adorable images in this set and the sentiments work perfectly with them. ;)
To create my scene, I diecut a Stitched Arch Stax from My Favorite Things from Neenah Solar White cardstock and stamped the grass from the Some Bunny stamp set along the bottom. I then added green and aqua to the grass and sky area using Copic markers.
I stamped the bunny onto another piece of Solar White cardstock and coloured him in with aqua and grey markers. I love the look of combining two completely different colours onto one image and grey and aqua is one of my favourite combos. I started by colouring the top of the bunny with the darker grey and the bottom of the bunny with the darker aqua. I then went lighter with both colours as I went to the center area and blended them together so they looked seamless.
I stamped the sentiment onto a speech bubble die and then I adhered everything together. I added a grey chevron striped patterned paper to the card base and covered it with a piece of vellum to mute it down a bit. I then adhered the arch scene directly onto the panel. I added foam adhesive to the bunny and speech bubble and adhered them to complete the scene.
To finish the card I added a mix of clear sequins and the light pink sequins from the Hearts and Kisses sequin mix from Mint Owl Studio.
