The Nicest Things...No Bunny!

I decided to make a card using this sketch. I thought The Nicest Things set would be a good one to use with it. This set isn't really my style, but I had to buy it because of that one image - the bunny in the flower pot. All who know me know I love bunnies and have had pet house rabbits for almost two decades now. Anyway, I had an idea in my head. Well, you know how that goes! It just didn't work out! I stamped the little girls and colored them in. The image of the girls was larger than I anticipated, so by the time I put down the different pieces of cardstock, I couldn't fit the bunny! I'll have to use that image on another card... I also used the Color Throwdown #106 challenge for this. I think these are great colors together. I have really come to love and appreciate Crumb Cake (Kraft). I'm so happy to have the ink pad and marker now too :)
To embellish, I used some cute little chocolate chip brads that I thought worked well with this card. I also used a chocolate chip and certainly celery button, tied together with a thin strip of soft sky cardstock. I "tied" the whole thing together with some chocolate chip satin ribbon (love the satin ribbon!!!)

Anyway, here's my card and my take on the challenges. Thanks for looking and have a great day!
