Oh So Huggable!

Hello - Well this card was not planned out - it just evolved with each new piece that was added. I bought the Bo Bunny "Smoochable Collection" 6 x 6 paper pad and one of the papers was the brown background piece with the words "Huggable, Kissable, You" and that is where it began. I then knew I wanted to use my new Tilda and she needed something to sit on so I thought why not cut out a couple of hearts which I used my cricuit machine for. I then found the pom-pom ribbon border and just knew that finally I was going to use it on this card - I was so excited at this point!! (I have had this pom-pom border ribbon for ages and never knew where I would ever use it and it just worked so perfectly for this card - in my opinion) I then cut out the sentiment from another sheet of the Bo Bunny paper. I added some pink twine in the background for a more 3 dimentional look and added some tiny green and pink brads as well as some buttons, felt flowers and pink twine to make a bow. I also paper pieced Tilda's overalls with paper again from the same paper pad and added a couple of small purple buttons. I did add sparkle to the rose although it is hard to see on the photo. I was pleasantly surprised at how this card turned out and truly enjoyed the entire creative process involved. That is what I love most about this craft - each card is it's own masterpiece and the process of creating is so enjoyable! Two more days till the weekend - looking forward to a nice quiet weekend and hopefully more time in my craft room. I am going to submit this card for the Just Magnolia challenge "Anything Goes" and "using something new" which would be my new Tilda stamp and the Bo Bunny paper. Have a great day.

Your stamping friend, Debbie
