Okay, now on to today's sketch challenge:

My card for this week:

I opted to go for clean & simple punch art! Isn't this bunny's behind adorable? And so simple to create.

First I embossed the "Delicate Designs Textured Impressions Folder" about an inch from the bottom and added a string of "3/8" Pink Pirouette Satin Ribbon" at the top of the embossing. I also added "Pearl Jewels" to adorn the embossing.

The bunny's behind starts out with a "Whisper White Cardstock" circle cut with the "1 3/4" Circle Punch" and I sponged "Basic Gray Ink" on the outside with a "Sponge Dauber". I glued my circle in position using "Stampin' Dimensionals".

I then cut (2) "Whisper White Cardstock" pieces using the "Large Oval Punch". I sponged the edges of both pieces. Using the "Cupcake Punch", punch out the trio of confetti twice to create the digital pads for each paw using "Pink Pirouette Cardstock". Glue both paws onto the body using "Stampin' Dimensionals". For the tail I tore a partial piece of cotton from a cotton ball and smooshed it in the palm of my had to make it round. I glued that in place with a "Stampin' Dimensional" also.

Stamp the sentiment and add a solo "Pearl Jewel" near the sentiment! Your next stop should be to visit Create with Connie & Mary to be inspired by the designer's creations!
