Just Magnolia Challenge - Bevs Sketch

This weeks Just Magnolia Challenge is a sketch by our lovely talented friend Bev Rochester.
This is my interpretation of her sketch, and with it Ive created a card for my second eldest granddaughter for Easter.
I used this gorgeous image of Tilda in a bunnysuit, that I received from Nikki of BunnyZoes Crafts yesterday, if you are interested in buying the new stamps you should pop across to her website to see what she has on offer.
I have stamped her out onto white card then coloured her with my copic pens, after which I have punched her out with my Oval Nestabilitie die then mounted her onto a Scalloped Oval cut out of blue card. The sentiment is another of the Magnolia stamps this was stamped and cut out with the Ribbon label die, and mounted onto another piece of blue card.
The base card is a 7"x 7" white card, with a first mount of blue card and one of four papers from the new
"Hoppy Hearts Collection" by Nitwit Downloads, the first paper is a blue based paper with rabbits and other bits and pieces on, the second paper is a yellow one with flowers on and this was mounted onto a yellow piece of card, the third and four layer are firstly a striped paper with several colours on and the fourth paper is a yellow patterned paper with the same design as the first paper I used the Martha Stewart rabbit border punch, these were layered up and a piece of yellow ribbon was attached around the middle with the sentiment threaded onto it and attached to the back of the first mount.
The mounted image was then stuck to the right and Ive created two flowers from left over paper with my retro punches and blue pearl brads and silver spacers were stuck through the centers and they were then stuck on top of some punched out leaves, Ive hung a teddy bear charm from the bottom flower, and some blue pearls were then stuck down the edges of the top and bottom of the card.
