I changed some of the sketch as I didn't have any oval scalloped punches. So I did my own thing.
Once again my scanner has a mind of it's own when it comes to the colors it shows. Real color combo is below.
Whisper White, Pixie Pink cs
Designer Paper, don't remember the name of this one it is retired.
A New Little Someone (retired SU)
Retired background stamp
With WW cut at 5 1/2 x 8 1/2, and one at 2 x 5 1/4
Designer Paper is cut at 1 3/4 x 5 1/4
Pixie Pink is cut at 5 1/4 x 4
Punch two word punch pieces out of WW
Stamp bunny on WW and color in with chalks or desired coloring method. Cut out and add pop dots to back.
Stamp Pixie Pink with Versamark and little background stamp of choice.
Fold word punch pieces in half and add to card as shown. Add brads.
Mount the PP on the WW main card.
Layer the designer paper on the smaller WW piece and layer onto PP in the center.
Add bunny, by removing pop dots.
And your card is finished. Really fun and easy to do and so bright, it can be used as a Birthday Card for a child, Baby Announcement, Easter Card or Baby Card.
Hope you enjoy today's project.

It's winter in Minnesota
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At twenty-five below.
Oh, how I love Minnesota
When the snow's up to your butt
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut.
Yes, the weather here is wonderful
So I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave Minnesota
'Cause I'm frozen to the ground!
Just had to share that, hope all you enjoyed my BIL's sense of humor!

My best friend sent me up my B'day present early. Her dh was coming through town so she sent it with him for me to enjoy early. Haven't been able to play with it much beings I have been sick with the migraine but wanted to share what I got. Here is a video telling you what it is and how to use it.
I wanted one of these so bad cause I also do scrapbooks, but they will also work for altered work. It can punch through almost anything just like the original crop-a-dile. Last year my oldest son got me the original crop-a-dile and I love it. How lucky can one person get to have both now.
Thanks LuJean for the wonderful present!

Today was a beautiful day in Central MN, so this was the perfect day for making this card. I hope you like it as well as I do.
Bashful Blue cut at 8x9 and one cut at 1 1/2 x 6 1/4
Brilliant Blue cut at 2 1/2 x 8 1/2 and one cut at 1 3/4 x 6 1/2

Brilliant Blue Ribbon
3 SU Bashful Blue Buttons
Any background stamp
Bashful Blue Ink Pad
Scalloped Square Punch
Glossy White Card Stock
Markers and Blender Pens
Seasonal Birds Stamp Set (Retired)
I stamped the main card 8 x 9 with a little butterfly background stamp in the Bashful Blue ink. Layered my plaid on my largest piece of Brilliant Blue.
Punched out my 3 glossy white scalloped squares and stamped them with the Seasonal Birds stamp set in Black. Colored them in using blender pens and markers.
Layered them on my Bashful Blue piece that is 1 1/2 x 6 1/4. Leave an area on the bottom for adding ribbon. Add your ribbon on the bottom of the piece. I used some glue to hold it in place on the back so it was easier to tie. On the ribbon after I got my knot tied I weaved on the oval punches with the saying on it to the ribbon. Then finished my bow.
Now with the Brilliant Blue piece that is 1 3/4 x 6 1/2. Add to the main card. Add buttons and your done.
With the larger Brilliant Blue piece add the plaid paper. Layer this one the main card. Then layer the Imaged piece on the card follow the sketch. Then add your buttons.
And your card is done.
Hope you enjoy the card and sketch for today I know I sure did.
