Some Bunny Loves you for the Prairie Fairy

I created this cute card for a chance at being a design team for The Praire Fairy Designs.  They provided the digital image for us to use and we were to make whatever we wanted with it.  I'm afraid I made a mistake and thought it was due by Saturday night and I spent last night (Friday night) watching my son perform with the Thespian Club at his local high school instead of finishing my card.  He played a part in "Drop Dead Juliet" and ended up having to wear a dress and a wig... he also gets stabbed in this play but he kept UN-dying.  It was quite a comedy!  Last night is the only time they will perform this little play here where I can see it... so I HAD to go.  When I came home and started to put the finishing touches on my card I went to the Praire Fairy site and they had closed the submissions.  I was a little down but you know what?  Making the card was so much fun I'm not even going to let it get me down.  I'm going to email them and just let them know that I did make a card.  I don't expect them to set aside their rules just for me (and there's no guarantee that I would win a design team spot anyway)... I just thought they would like to see the card I made with their image.  So without further adieu, here's my card.

This cute little guy is sending his heart in the mail to his bunny love.  I used copics to color him, added a little shimmer to the heart when I painted the "love" with red shimmerz.  I used SU Real Red ink to sponge the edges of the die using the Spellbinders as a mask.  I ran the brown paper through my Big Shot with Tim Holts "Postcard" embossing folder.  I then used vintage cream ink to highlight the embossed area. I used Tea Dye Distress Ink around the card base which is SU's Kraft. 

I tied a bow with some red shiny ribbon that I had in my stash.  Then I added a Maya Road Transparency Doily behind the bunny.  

You can probably see the doily a little better at a different angle in this photo. 

I then added some flowers...

and fancied up the ribbon.. (yes, it is secured that way)

and put it all together and here's what you have:

I'm also submitting this card for two challenges:
Friday Sketchers - sketch
CR84FN color challenge - red, kraft & brown

Thank you for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed your visit.  I truly appreciate every comment left here.

Yes, Nancy--they really should see this! It's wonderful!! So sorry to hear about the mix up! That would have to be very disappointing!! The way you've colored the little bunny is perfection!!
