Hoppy Birthday!

I have another birthday card to share today...this one features an old Lili of the Valley image called 'Spring Bunny with Daffs'. I stamped it on to watercolour paper, then coloured it using watercolour pencils and cut it out using one of my circle Nesties. I paired it with some papers from the 'Spring Freshness' pad by Craft Sensations...distressing the edges a little and adding some faux stitching using my CutterBee Bug and a black gel pen. The sentiment is from the 'Anytime Messages' set by Hero Arts...I didn't ink up the 'a' in 'Happy' so that I could replace it with an 'o' after stamping, using a black gel pen.
