Hambo birthday


When I saw todays sketch and the small sq panel I thought about Hambo stamps. Their stamps crack me up and I knew one of their small images would be perfect for the sq panel. I needed a birthday card so I used this rabbit, carrot sentiment, and carrot image. I colored the rabbit and carrot using copics and added cotton candy stickles to his paw, nose and ears. I also added frosted lace stickles to his tummy and tail so hes sparkling all over!LOL! I stamped the carrot image tone on tone on the pumpkin pie layer then stamped part of the sentiment in black. For my embellishments I used coral brads and striped pumpkin pie ribbon. After I finished putting all my layers together the creamy caramel strip seemed to need something so I added some faux stitching and I think the black is too much I prolly shoulda used creamy caramel instead! Next time I'll just leave it alone!LOL!
Today is the last day of school this week so we will be on Easter break until Tuesday. I might have hair left we'll just have to wait and see!LOL! J/K!!

Super cute Shannon! I love the glittery belly and feet, the carrot stamp you used on the pumpkin piece AND the sentiment is oh so perfect! I love cards that play on words like that:)) I don't think the black is too much on the faux stitching. Creamy caramel would barely be noticable. My opinion...for what it's worth:)))
