"Hoppy" Mother's Day

     Hooray!  Today the first ever, monthly challenge over at 2 Crafty Critter Crazies begins and I'm so excited to be part of the team getting things started !  It's an Anything Goes challenge (not limited to just cards) but there is one requirement.  Your project MUST have some kind of critter featured on it.  We don't care if it's furry, feathered, has fins or scales, or is merely an insect but it must be a "featured" creature, not merely a teeny, tiny bug added as an embellishment.  :-D

     Our first sponsor is MHK Designs and they are offering one free image set and one free digital paper set to the winner.   The team was given this darling bunny image and I decided that I'd use it for a Mother's Day card instead of for Easter.  In the animal kingdom, bunnies are some of the best moms ever.  :-D

     The image is colored with chalks, then die cut with a scalloped, stitched die from Memory Box.  I also used that die to cut the black and white dp (DCWV Midnight Chic) circles.  The sentiment was computer generated and printed, then hand cut and applied.

     I added the white, embroidered ribbon, the little hand sewn bow and the pink roses and called it done.
