Just For You Friendship Card

Hello, my dear friends! I hope you're having a beautiful week. :o) I'm not yet physically up to my sparkly par, but was able to get through a Spring-inspired friendship card. :o)

Just For You:
Slightly angled to better show the sparkling details throughout her hair, shirt, and cherries:
I couldn't wait another moment to break out my Copics and color up one of my new rubber stamps. :o) This sweet stamp is Spring Pick by Elisabeth Bell and I adore it something fierce! I loved coloring up this sweetheart. The bunny looks so precious giving her those extra special flowers... it just makes my heart poofer out completely. His tail is fluffy with Polar White Flower Soft, which looks fun in person. I used Tumbled Glass distress ink and a cloud template for the sky and added a polka-dot butterfly. Spring Pick sits atop a Spellbinders Fleur de Lis Square, which is accented with Wild Orchid Crafts roses, rosebuds, and sweetheart blossoms. The heart stick pin is from Little Yellow Bicycle.

The little bunny in the corner is from SVG Cutting Files, called Sweet Baby Bunny. I thought she'd look cute with this stamp. I gave her a Peachy Keen Teddy Bear face as I've seen a few people do, which is just an irresistible combination. I don't have the set so I had to draw it on. The sweet bunny is nestled behind the Spring Border Memory Box die. I colored the flowers on it with my Copics, using the deepest blue and pink that I used in the stamp and coated it with Star Dust. 

The pretty My Mind's Eye papers are from The Sweetest Thing~ Lavender collection, which I paired with Victorian Velvet Core'dinations backing paper. I stitched around the card and added a layer of American Crafts ribbon lace for extra texture. The sentiment tucked within the flowers is from My Craft Spot's Tiny Tags 2 and the coordinating metal dies.

Short (for me) and sweet tonight, as I'm still a bit woozy! I'm not even sure how I colored. :o) Thank you for visiting and I hope you have a blessed and twinkly night. :o)
