True Love Begins....

Hi Blog Friends!
How are you?
It has been raining here cats & dogs! LOL
So, I've been keeping myself busy inside thinking bunnies, of course.....;)

I have been busy here preparing for a baby shower coming up at our church.
There is nothing sweeter than the beginning of a new life!
So, I've been busy creating one of my most favorite things here---- baby things....

Of course, I made a card.....
I've titled it
"True Love Begins...."

I have two cards to show you that were the inspiration for my card,
both are done by
 Melissa Phillips. 
You can find her blog here:

Here are Melissa's cards:
I LOVE the way Melissa created the ribbony pieces that extend from the star, so unique!

I just LOVE this layout & well, EVERYTHING else too! LOL 
Melissa's cards are just GORGEOUS to me! ;) 
So, take a peak at what I came up with with these two cards being my inspiration.

True Love Begins..... 
I LOOOOVE bunnies for babies!
So, I pulled out the old SU set-Serene Spring,
stamped with Stazon on Strathmore Water Color Paper-140 lb.
& water colored with  SU- Water Color Crayons.
I then die cut the image with my
 PTI- Tag Sale #4 Die. 

 The rainbow pastel swirls were done using SU inks
& were done by cutting a curved piece of card stock & using that to sponge on color.
 I did the same color all at once, so it wouldn't look "perfect!"
(Half the fun of doing this is this just going for it!)

I used MFT- Basic Stitch Lines around the edges.
(Also, around the edges of the inside piece. You can see a glimpse of it here)

I used the wonderful set, 
"Don't Forget To Write," by PTI for the flowers.

I used PTI- Bitty Button Stacks for the "button" on the ribbon.

Here's a close up of the bunny & her friend.... who is welcoming her to the world! ;)
I also added just a dab of Diamond Glaze to the bunny's eyes.

This is the inside, where I combined several
 SU sets- Sweet Thing & Congrats.

Today, I will be making my Baby Bunny Toys to go with my gift,
a Hand Knit Baby Sweater Set.
You can see an example of what I am talking about here if you haven't seen them before:

Hope you like!

Staying dry & thinking BUNNIES! ;)
