Softball Bunny CBC14

This card has several purposes. One for my dd that was asked by the coach to be on Varsity which is a dream of hers. Two Chrissy's Belli Challenge 14 and a sketch I did a few days ago. You can see that sketch card here. I love this bunny, he is so cute and fit the occasion perfectly. Chrissy's Belli Challenge (CBC14) calls for ribbon but not used for tying knots or bows but to use it in a different way. So this card fit that too. And I just had to try that sketch again for this one. You can use that sketch so many different ways. Ok so on with the supplies and directions.
Supplies needed:
Whisper White, Real Red card stock
Scalloped punches
Gamsol and colored pencils
Ribbon, I used stitched ribbon in black and red to match the card
Softball from an old SU set
Happy Hoppers Stamp from Stampabilities
Black Ink
Black and White Gel Pen
Cut WW card stock at 5 1/2 by 8 1/2 when folded you have a card that measures 4 1/4 x 5 1/2.
Cut RR at 4 x 5 1/4.
Cut WW at 3 3/4 x 5 and stamp with black ink the softballs all around for background. Mount to RR piece, add a strip of stitched red ribbon to the center and mount this to the basic card.
Punch a larger scalloped circle in RR and with White Gel Pen make dots and swirls on the scallops. With a smaller scalloped punch, punch out a white one and stamp Sweet on it with black ink, add dots with Black Gel Pen. Mount the two together and set aside.
Stamp image with Black Stazon on WW card stock cut at 2 6/8 x 2 1/2. Color in image with desired coloring method. Cut RR card stock at 3 x 2 3/4. Mount stamped image to this.
Cut a piece of red and black ribbon approx. 1 1/2 inches long and fold in half and mount to back of stamped image as shown in sketch. Mount this to card as shown in sample. Then mount your scalloped saying to the lower corner of the image on the right hand side.
Didn't this turn out so cute?
