Happy Birthday Challenge at LOTV

Hello lovely peeps, I hope you are enjoying the weekend.
Will today be the day I get my 100th follower I wonder? :o)

Lili of the Valley are celebrating their 13th birthday on the 10th of May, so the theme for this month's Challenge is Birthdays. This is the inspiration card that I've made, featuring the Simply Print image 'Bunny Blooms'  

The pre-coloured image comes with daffodils but I wanted something pink, so I cut the bunny and stems out so I could attach my own flowers.

For the background I took a paper from the Romance and Roses paper pad (discontinued, but available as a download from Nitwit), roughened the edges with my scissors and then inked the edges with Picked Raspberry distress ink.

This was attached to a 6x6 card blank and I added some grass which I'd die-cut from another paper in the pad using the Die'sire Icicle die. I glued Bunny down onto the card and then attached some pink sweetheart blossoms from WOC at the end of the stems using blobs of Collall 3D glue gel.

The sentiment was stamped onto white card using one of the 'Happy Circular Sentiments' from LOTV and cut out - I used the second impression as it went better with the soft colours.

The card is finished off with a pink organza bow and some clouds die-cut from white card.

I would like to enter this in the following challenges:-
Shopping Our Stash #301 fussy cut
The Ribbon Girls May - any card
As You Like It Challenge favourite die (the Icicle die which I always use for grass, it's so useful. And you get two uses out of one cut as the negative works just as well as the positive)

Thanks for stopping by,
Katrina x
